106.7 The Fan New Flagship For Washington Nationals

Sportsradio 106.7 The Fan and the Washington Nationals announced today that 106.7 The Fan will serve as the official flagship radio station for Nationals baseball games as part of a multi-year deal beginning with the 2011 season. Long-time Nationals radio broadcast team Charlie Slowes and Dave Jageler will join 106.7 The Fan for game broadcasts, and will contribute to the Fan’s local lineup of sports talk shows. Local baseball historian and broadcaster Phil Wood will also contribute to the broadcast. 106.7 The Fan will broadcast Nationals spring training match-ups as well as regular-season and postseason games.

“We are pleased and proud to be the flagship for the Washington Nationals,” said Sam Rogers, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, CBS RADIO Washington D.C. “106.7 The Fan is the market leader for sports and adding the Nationals to our already impressive roster of talent and play by play offerings only solidifies that. We look forward to being a part of the resurgence of major league baseball in D.C.”

As part of the agreement, 106.7 The Fan will broadcast a variety of Nationals-related programs, including daily reports from Nationals spring training, pre- and post-game shows, and hourly Nationals programs twice a week throughout the season. The station will also operate a studio set behind Section 106 at Nationals Park for pre-game and post-game coverage, and special live broadcasts of its local sports talk shows.

“With 106.7 The Fan’s great roster of talent and focus on local sports programming, it seemed only natural to add Nationals game broadcasts to the station’s lineup,” Nationals COO Andrew Feffer said.

Some games will air on 106.7 The Fan sister station 1580 AM, and most games will also be simulcast on 1500 AM.

    Awesome. AM may go further, but the reception really stinks as it gets later into the night. I’ll be glad to have the games on FM. Also, good for 106.7!

    “The station will also operate a studio set behind Section 106 at Nationals Park for pre-game and post-game coverage, and special live broadcasts of its local sports talk shows.” <— I'm also looking forward to that.

    I’m glad the Nationals will be on WJFK 106.7. That way I can hear the games clearer.

    At long last, we Nats fans can FINALLY hear the games in daytime (and night time, too!!!). But I guess I have to keep my HD Radio, just in case…lol
    So now we can GET OUR RED ON on JFK!!! YAY!!

    when will the spring training broadcast schedule be posted?

  • Pattie Klein

    I expected last night’s game to be on 106.7 but it wasn’t. And it looks like it’s not being broadcast tonight either. What is the broadcast schedule?

  • Kate

    No game again tonight, just a wide band of Duran Duran. This is galling.

  • Joe

    Are you broadcasting the Nationals tonight? I cannot find them on any station!

  • Marc Hyman

    They were on the big talker 1580.
