As the NHL preseason gets underway, the NASHVILLE PREDATORS have announced a change in flagship station from CITADEL Sports WGFX (104.5 THE ZONE)/NASHVILLE to crosstown CROMWELL GROUP Active Rock WBUZ (102.9 THE BUZZ) in a multi-year deal. WBUZ will air select preseason games and all regular season and postseason games each year, including a 30-minute pregame show and hour-long postgame show. TOM CALLAHAN is back as play-by-play announcer for radio-only broadcasts and will join PETE WEBER and TERRY CRISP for the other 22 games.
“We are very excited to announce THE BUZZ as our new radio flagship partner,” PREDS EVP and Chief Sales Officer CHRIS PARKER said. “WBUZ is NASHVILLE-owned and operated, boasts a 100,000-watt broadcast signal and is a top-ranked station in MIDDLE TENNESSEE with tremendous demographics. Add to this their promotional ability and the fact that our fans can preset 102.9 FM for every game ... and this is a fantastic partnership that will benefit our fans.”
“We’ve seen the excitement that the PREDATORS generate for the NASHVILLE community, and as a local business we are proud to be a part of that,” CROMWELL GROUP Pres. BUD WALTERS said.
