OAKLAND RAIDERS football will move from CITADEL Talk KSFO-A/SAN FRANCISCO to crosstown CBS RADIO Alternative KITS (LIVE 105) and Oldies KFRC-A this season under a new deal with COMPASS MEDIA NETWORKS.
The Silver and Black aired on KSFO for the past six seasons.
"The RAIDER Organization is delighted to announce an exciting new relationship with COMPASS MEDIA NETWORKS, pursuant to which RAIDER games will be broadcast in the BAY AREA on KFRC 1550 AM and KITS LIVE 105 FM, as well as a broad affiliate network in CALIFORNIA and beyond,” said RAIDERS CEO AMY TRASK.
"The OAKLAND RAIDERS have a tremendous heritage and brand in our community," said CBS RADIO SAN FRANCISCO VP/Market Manager DOUG HARVILL. "Adding the OAKLAND RAIDERS football games to our lineup is a natural fit and a powerful attraction to LIVE 105's rock audience and KFRC’s oldies fans. We are thrilled to become even more local in our already successful effort to attract and entertain BAY AREA listeners."
"We are honored to work with the OAKLAND RAIDERS and CBS RADIO," said COMPASS CEO PETER KOSANN. "Our goal is to significantly increase the number of stations carrying RAIDERS football. This announcement is just the beginning."
