CBS RADIO News-Talk KFWB-A/LOS ANGELES will air LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS basketball under a new multi-year deal. BRIAN SIEMAN will continue as the radio voice of the CLIPPERS on KFWB for his third season with the franchise. The CLIPPERS were knocked off of crosstown ESPN RADIO Sports KSPN-A (710 ESPN) when that station grabbed the rights to the NBA champion LAKERS from rival CLEAR CHANNEL Sports KLAC-A (AM 570) after last season.
"Since the 1950's, KFWB has been a leader in the LOS ANGELES media marketplace, so we’re honored to be part of their long tradition," said CLIPPERS President ANDY ROESER. "Also, this long term relationship represents a tremendous development for our fans: no conflicts, a strong signal, with a strong adjacent programming schedule and supportive partners."
"We are very proud to be partnering with a first class organization like the CLIPPERS, and we look forward to adding the team to KFWB's new and improved lineup of programming," said CBS LOS ANGELES SVP/Market Manager ED KRAMPF. "KFWB is committed to serving the interests of Southern Californians, and the addition of CLIPPERS games will help us further reach that goal."
