BONNEVILLE News WFED-A (FEDERAL NEWS RADIO)/WASHINGTON will serve as the WASHINGTON affiliate of the BALTIMORE RAVENS radio network. WFED also carries WASHINGTON NATIONALS baseball and WASHINGTON CAPITALS hockey; RAVENS games that conflict with NATS or CAPS games will air on BONNEVILLE's WBQH-A (formerly WTOP-A), which was recently leased to UNITED MEDIA for a Spanish-language format; in its previous incarnation under AIR AMERICA MEDIA as WZAA-A, the same 1050 AM frequency carried RAVENS games last season.
Sr. Regional VP JOEL OXLEY said, "We are excited to work with one of the NFL's premier franchises. This latest addition to our programming further increases WFED's profile as the top place for radio play-by-play sports in the MID-ATLANTIC."
RAVENS VP/Corporate Sales and Development MARK BURDETT added, "It's outstanding to have such a well-established station and station group as BONNEVILLE become our network affiliate in WASHINGTON, DC. We are pleased to be able to serve our many and growing number of fans in DC and to complement the already outstanding lineup of live play-by-play team broadcasts."
The RAVENS are heard on a network headed by HEARST Talk WBAL-A/BALTIMORE.
