ALL ACCESS has obtained a copy of an "invite," sent out by CBS RADIO Talk WJFK/WASHINGTON, D.C., to an event at THE VERIZON CENTER next TUESDAY, JULY 14th. Is this the date for the anticipated move to sports?

With WJFK "set to turn to a sports-talk format before the end of the month," writes DAN STEINBERG in the D.C. SPORTS BOG, "the station has started collecting sports properties. First up were the WIZARDS; their games will appear on WJFK for at least the next two seasons, multiple industry sources confirmed TODAY. WJFK remains in negotiations with other local college and professional franchises.
STEINBERG notes "The CAPITALS have yet to sign a new radio deal; their two-year agreement with BONNEVILLE expired after the '09 season. The CAPITALS and WIZARDS have previously shared a broadcast partner; both teams had deals with what was then WTEM 980 earlier this decade, with the CAPS often being moved to other frequencies when the teams played simultaneous games."
