iHeartMedia Pittsburgh inks an extension of its broadcast agreement with the Pittsburgh Steelers, effective through the 2023 NFL season. The new deal includes The Steelers Radio Network originating from WDVE (102.5) and WBGG (970 & 106.3) with additional promotional support across all six of the company's Pittsburgh stations and websites. The partnership also includes Steelers Nation Radio (SNR), airing 24 hours of Steelers programming on WDVE-FM-HD-2. Steelers play-by-play coverage will air on WDVE and WBGG, where games have been broadcast from since the 1999 season.

The broadcast agreement includes the debut of several new Steelers programs, including the "The Point After," a weekly wrap up program featuring the Steelers radio broadcast team, as well as "The Steelers Preview Show" on Thursday nights. Both programs will be simulcast on WDVE and SNR.

The agreement outlines a schedule of year-round Steelers audio programming, which includes over 1,000 hours of live and original Steelers ancillary programming during the regular season alone.

"iHeartMedia Pittsburgh and the Steelers have a longstanding partnership," said iHeartMedia Pittsburgh Market President Tim McAleer. "We are thrilled to continue to bring millions of sports fans throughout Pittsburgh Steelers broadcasts and programming for years to come."

"We are excited to announce our continuing partnership with iHeartMedia Pittsburgh that will serve our fans through the 2023 season," added Steelers Vice President of Sales and Marketing Ryan Huzjak. "Through our partnership, we continue to develop new programming for Steelers Nation which can be found on iHeartMedia Pittsburgh and Steelers digital platforms. We are excited that our fans will be able to continue listening to the programs they love and also enjoy new programs which will provide most extensive coverage of the team in 2019 and beyond."
