|RADIO ONLINE | Friday, August 17, 2018|
Entercom and the Houston Texans have agreed to extend their current broadcast partnership. As part of the deal, KILT-AM (SportsRadio 610) and KILT-FM (100.3 The Bull) in Houston will continue to carry all Houston Texans games, and KLOL-FM (Mega 101 FM) in Houston will broadcast all games in Spanish. The new multi-year extension will run through the 2027 season.
"We are thrilled to extend our partnership with the Houston Texans and remain as the team's flagship home," said Senior VP/Market Manager Sarah Frazier. "Football is an integral part of the Houston community and as the leaders in sports radio, we are committed to providing fans exclusive all-access programming with some of the best on-air talent in the business in both English and Spanish."
"We are pleased to have Entercom Houston as our radio partner for at least another decade," said Houston Texans President Jamey Rootes. "Working together, we have created a novel broadcasting approach that allows us to deliver unique, engaging and entertaining Texans content which has been branded ‘Texans Radio.' The centerpiece of this is our games, but Texans Radio's extensive platform each week brings the fun and excitement of game day to Texans fans across the world every other day of the year."
In addition to game broadcasts, SportsRadio 610 will continue to air a three-hour pregame and postgame show, plus "Texans All Access," which will continue to air weekdays from 6-8pm CT during the regular season and 6-7pm during the offseason. The "Bill O'Brien Show" airs from 5-6pm during the regular season. Promotional partnerships will extend across Entercom stations in Houston, with on-air features and programming airing on sister stations KKHH-FM (95.7 The Spot), KHMX-FM (Mix 96.5) and KIKK-AM (Mix 96.5).
As part of the agreement, SportsRadio 610 will continue to produce Houston Texans content for distribution on the Texans Radio Network. The Texans Radio Network broadcast team of Marc Vandermeer and Andre Ware will continue to provide play-by-play and game analysis as they have done for the past 17 years. Enrique Vasquez and Gustavo Rangel will provide the play-by-play for Spanish broadcasts on Texans Radio Network.
