|RADIO ONLINE | , ,|
The Atlanta Braves ink a 5-year deal with Dickey Broadcasting/Cumulus to air the MLB francise's games beginning in 2010. Previously, the team's games aired on Clear Channel's Talk WGST-AM for the past 5 years. The new agreement covers all 162 regular season games along with game-day programming. The Braves will be heard on Sports WCNN-AM (The Fan) and Rock WNNX-FM.
According to the Journal Constitution, Dickey Broadcasting will also operate the Braves' regional radio network, currently airing on more that 150 affiliates in the Southeast.
"We're thrilled that Atlanta-based Dickey Broadcasting Company, partnering with Cumulus, has come aboard and brought with them both the leading sports talk station in town and their highly rated rock station to air our games in Atlanta," said Braves Executive VCP/Sales and Marketing Derek Schiller. "We are looking forward to hearing Don Sutton and Jim Powell on their new home in 2010 and on the largest radio network in sports."
