ATLANTA FALCONS football is moving from CBS RADIO Triple A WZGC (92.9 DAVE FM)/ATLANTA to crosstown LINCOLN FINANCIAL MEDIA Sports WQXI-A (790 THE ZONE) and Hot AC WSTR (STAR 94) next season, reports MEREDITH-owned CBS affiliate WGCL-TV (CBS ATLANTA), which is becoming the team's pre-season television outlet.
WES DURHAM and DAVE ARCHER will continue to call the action, with both AM and FM outlets also airing a pre-game show including interviews with coach MIKE SMITH, quarterback MATT RYAN, GM THOMAS DIMITROFF, and team President RICH MCKAY.
"We are pleased with both of the new media partners that emerged from our process," said MCKAY. "STAR 94 and SPORTS RADIO 790 THE ZONE coupled with CBS ATLANTA are solid media companies that are committed to providing FALCONS fans with the most innovative, complete and comprehensive coverage from a radio and television perspective, respectively. We look forward to a long and successful association with both partners."
