Arizona Coyotes Make the Move to iHM's KGME-AM/Phoenix

The NHL's Arizona Coyotes are reportedly making the move to iHeartMedia Sports KGME-AM (Fox Sports 910)/Phoenix from crosstown Bonneville Sports KMVP-FM (Arizona Sports 98.7) for the 2019-20 season. Instead of having their games moved to different outlets under their previous radio partnership with Arizona Sports, the new deal solves the problem of Coyotes games getting bumped from KMVP when a conflict arrises. KMVP is also the flagship for Arizona Diamondbacks, Arizona Cardinals and Phoenix Suns games as well as Arizona State University sports.

"We are thrilled to partner with iHeartMedia Phoenix's Fox Sports 910," said Coyotes President/CEO Ahron Cohen. "As we strive to build and cultivate new Coyotes fans, this multi-dimensional partnership - including iHeartMedia's multitude of media platforms - provides us with unparalleled touchpoints to a broad cross-section of the Valley's population. Equally important is iHeart's ability to deliver an exceptional fan entertainment experience for all of our robust Coyotes content that will enhance our fans' connectivity to the team."

"The entire team at iHeartMedia is excited to be the new home for the Arizona Coyotes, especially at such an exciting time for the team," said iHeartMedia/Phoenix Market President Linda Little. "Working together we will build our all-in agreement between the Arizona Coyotes and Fox Sports 910 across our entire iHeartMedia platform of well-known audio brands here in Phoenix and on our iHeartRadio app. Ahron Cohen and the entire team have been great to work with and we are excited for what we can do together."

Each game will include 30 minutes of pre-game coverage prior to the puck drop and 45 minutes of post-game coverage. The post-game show will include player interviews and a live broadcast of Coyotes Head Coach Rick Tocchet's press conferences. In addition, play-by-play announcer, Bob Heethuis, will return for his 15th season with the team as well as Coyotes' radio color analyst, Paul Bissonnette.

The station will also air a variety of Coyotes shows featuring President & CEO, Ahron Cohen; President of Hockey Operations and General Manager, John Chayka; Head Coach, Rick Tocchet; and Analysts Tyson Nash and Paul Bissonnette. All interviews will be posted and available on the new official Arizona Coyotes Audio Network, a custom station on iHeartRadio.

In addition, The Arizona Coyotes Audio Network will feature exclusive Coyotes audio content for fans. The network will be the only place to find additional Arizona Coyotes audio content including game replays and highlights, historical games, player and coach interviews and more. Listeners can access the network through the iHeartRadio app by searching for "Arizona Coyotes," or by streaming online.
