106.7 The Fan has announced a multi-year deal with Georgetown men’s basketball to carry game broadcasts on FM radio in the coming seasons.
“We’re very excited to announce this partnership with 106.7 The Fan and for them to serve as the radio network for Georgetown Basketball for fans listening to legendary broadcaster Rich Chvotkin,” Georgetown Senior Associate Athletics Director for External Affairs Dan O’Neil said. “The quality programming the station provides in the Washington and Baltimore markets will allow Georgetown fans great access to our gameday coverage.”
“106.7 The Fan is the market leader for play-by-play sports in Washington, and we couldn’t be happier to provide Hoyas fans with greater access to Hoyas games and content,” 106.7 The Fan Program Director Chris Kinard said. “D.C. is a premiere college basketball town, and Georgetown is a powerhouse program under Coach John Thompson III.”
Georgetown game broadcasts will air primarily on 106.7 The Fan (FM), with a select few moved to sister station 99.1 WNEW (FM) for conflict with Washington Capitals broadcasts. Play-by-play announcer Rich Chvotkin returns for his 42nd year calling Georgetown basketball.
“The most important thing to us was really enhancing the brand and getting it further exposure into the marketplace, and you guys are the powerhouse in this area,” said Jeff Ajluni, General Manager of Georgetown Sports Properties (a division of FOX Sports Media Group). “Getting on the FM band was really important to us. It’s really all about the Hoyas brand, getting it more exposed in the marketplace and delivering better value to our fans.”
106.7 The Fan serves the Washington, D.C. area with a top-rated lineup of local sports personalities including The Sports Junkies, Grant Paulsen and Danny Rouhier, and Chad Dukes vs. The World. 106.7 The Fan is also the flagship station for the Washington Nationals, Capitals, National Football League, NCAA March Madness, and Virginia Tech football and basketball. The station is owned and operated by CBS RADIO.
