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.
