More from 106.7 the Fan

WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – CBS Radio announced an exclusive partnership Wednesday with D.C. United that will bring professional soccer matches to the D.C. radio airwaves through the 2017 Major League Soccer season.

Beginning with United’s May 17 home game against Montreal Impact, regular season and postseason matches will be broadcast in English, on either 106.7 The Fan or CBS Sports Radio 1580, and in Spanish, on 107.9 El Zol – HD2.

“106.7 The Fan is Washington’s No. 1 sports radio station and play-by-play home for the Nationals, the Capitals, and the Wizards,” said Senior Vice President & Market Manager of CBS in Washington D.C., Steve Swenson. “We are excited to become the flagship station for D.C. United’s radio play-by-play but are also thrilled to serve the DMV’s Hispanic community with Spanish-language play-by-play on DC’s No. 1 Spanish station, El Zol 107.9 – HD2.”

English play-by-play announcing responsibilities will be handled by 106.7 The Fan talents Frank Hanrahan and Pete Medhurst.

CBS Radio will also host regular weekly D.C. United-focused programming across those same radio stations, which will feature additional content from D.C. United players, coaches, and other team personnel.

Additional marketing and special event collaborations are in the works.
