Entercom and the Kansas City Chiefs have announced a multi-year agreement. WDAF-FM (106.5 The Wolf) has been named as the new flagship station of the 70 station Chiefs Radio Network and home of the Chiefs beginning on February 16, 2020. As part of the agreement, 106.5 The Wolf will broadcast all preseason, regular season and postseason games, along with pre-game and post-game coverage.

"We are extremely pleased to enter into this new partnership with the Kansas City Chiefs, one of the NFL's most well respected and prestigious organizations," said Regional President and Market Manager Dave Alpert. "Entercom's eight station cluster of music, news and sports talk stations hosted by Kansas City's leading personalities align with vast digital and podcast opportunities, and will deliver the premium and comprehensive coverage Chiefs Kingdom desires seven days a week, all season long."

"We look forward to partnering with 106.5 The Wolf and the powerful Entercom family of stations," said Kanas City Chiefs President Mark Donovan. "The ability to bring our game broadcasts and existing weekly radio shows under one roof is a large part of this change, but we are equally excited about creating new content and developing new opportunities for Chiefs fans to engage with their favorite team."

The "Voice of the Chiefs" Mitch Holthus will return for his 27th season as the play-by-play personality for the Chiefs Radio Network. Owning more years of service than any other "Voice of the Chiefs" in team history, Holthus has called a franchise record 426 regular and postseason contests for Kansas City.

As part of the deal, KCSP-AM (610 Sports Radio) will become the official broadcast partner of the Kansas City Chiefs, with rights to Chiefs programming, including live radio broadcast rights to the Chiefs weekly in-season press conference with the club's head coach and a weekly one-on-one interview with the starting quarterback. In addition, KCSP will broadcast the Chiefs Kingdom Radio Show on Monday nights from 6-7pm, which is hosted by Chiefs play-by-play announcer Mitch Holthus, and includes call-ins from the head coach and live on-site guest interviews with key players.
