Audacy inks multi-year radio broadcast contract extensions with the Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres. As part of the partnership, WGR-AM (550) will continue as the flagship radio station for the Bills and Sabres, airing all preseason, regular and postseason games for both teams.
"We're delighted to extend our partnerships with the Bills and Sabres to continue delivering premier gameday and supporting content," said Audacy Buffalo Senior Vice President and Market Manager Tim Holly. "These partnerships will allow WGR 550 to continue to serve as the home for everything fans need to stay up to date surrounding these two iconic franchises and we look forward to entertaining and informing our listeners throughout both teams' seasons."
"As the home for all Buffalo sports fans, WGR is the right place for Bills and Sabres game broadcasts and team content," said Pegula Sports & Entertainment Executive VP Mark Preisler. "We're pleased to continue our relationship with Audacy and connect to our fans through Western New York's sports leader."
WGR 550 will kick off its Bills gameday broadcasts with three pregame shows, "Breakfast with the Bills Fantasy Style," "Bills Game Day," "Countdown to Kickoff" and wrap up with two postgame shows "Bills Network Postgame Show" and "The Overtime Show." In addition to gameday content, the station will air "Buffalo Bills Football Monday" and "Football Friday," which will feature team-focused content with special guests.
Morning show host "Howard and Jeremy" will welcome Bills play-by-play announcer John Murphy on Monday and Friday mornings and Bills head coach Sean McDermott each Friday morning. Afternoon show "Schopp & Bulldog" will speak with former Bills center Eric Wood every Monday and professional football writer John Clayton every Thursday.
