ENTERCOM Country KBWF (95.7 THE WOLF)/SAN FRANCISCO gets the save as the station becomes the flagship for OAKLAND ATHLETICS baseball on the eve of the team's 2011 regular season opener. The A'S were left without a radio outlet after negotiations to buy the club's former station, Sports KTRB-A (XTRA SPORTS 860), fell through late last week; the deal with ENTERCOM is for the next four seasons. KEN KORACH, VINCE COTRONEO, and RAY FOSSE return to call the action.
"We are delighted to enter this partnership with ENTERCOM. 95.7 THE WOLF is one of the most powerful FM signals in NORTHERN CALIFORNIA," said A'S VP of Broadcasting and Communications KEN PRIES. "THE WOLF offers the A's an established BAY AREA station which will reach many areas that our previous station could not, particularly BERKELEY and the OAKLAND hills. It also has a repeater tower on MT. DIABLO that services the 680 corridor of CONTRA COSTA COUNTY and ALAMEDA COUNTY areas."
"What could go better with AMERICA's favorite pastime, baseball, than AMERICA's original music, country? We are honored to be working with such a winning franchise that is a part of the fabric of the BAY AREA community. We look forward to broadcasting the OAKLAND A'S for the next 4 years", said ENTERCOM VP/Market Manager DWIGHT WALKER.
