Entering the 2017-18 season, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Cleveland Monsters have each announced multi-year agreements with iHeartMedia Cleveland to serve as the official broadcast home for NBA Cavs basketball and AHL Monsters hockey. In addition, the Cavs reached an extended agreement with Murray Hill Broadcasting to continue broadcasting all Cavs games in Spanish. Veteran broadcaster John Michael will return for his 7th season as play-by-play announcer and will be joined by Cavalier Legend Jim Chones, who will be back for his 8th season as color analyst.

iHeartMedia's WTAM-AM Cleveland will continue as the long-time radio home of the Cavs, broadcasting all 82 Cavs regular season games, as well as the five preseason games and all playoff games -- which will also simulcast live on sister WMMS-FM. Both WTAM and WMMS will also serve as flagship stations for the 30-station Elk & Elk Cavs Radio Network that reaches 38 states and half of Canada.

Each broadcast on the Cavaliers Radio Network begins 30 minutes prior to game time with "The Huntington Tip-Off Show," an inside look at the upcoming game including a preview of the Cavaliers game with the Cavs coaching staff and John Michael. Following each game is "Tito's Nightcap Recap," the Postgame Call-In Show with Snyder, Chones and Sellers taking fan calls and providing game analysis, along with comments from players in both locker rooms, and Coach Lue's postgame press conference.

For the second consecutive year, all 76 regular-season Monsters games will broadcast live on Alternative WMMS-HD2. Returning for his third season as the radio and television play-by-play voice of the Monsters is veteran hockey broadcaster Tony Brown. Brown spent two years in the NAHL as the voice of the Odessa Jackalopes, then one season in the USHL with the Omaha Lancers, before becoming the radio voice of the Indy Fuel in the ECHL-and then coming to the Monsters in their Calder Cup winning season of 2015-2016.
