iHeartMedia Pittsburgh inks an extension of its audio agreement with the Pittsburgh Steelers which will have iHeartMedia powering the newly created "Steelers Audio Network" through the 2028 season. The network will feature game day broadcasts, ancillary programs, digital audio (Steelers Nation Radio), podcasts and social media content. The network and its programming is available year-round across a variety of platforms, including WBGG (Fox Sports Pittsburgh).

In addition, 102.5 WDVE will continue to be the home of Pittsburgh Steelers game broadcasts. Steelers games have been broadcast on the station since 1999.

"We are excited to announce the continuation of our long-standing partnership with iHeartMedia and our flagship station, 102.5 WDVE," said Steelers Vice President of Sales and Marketing Ryan Huzjak. "We teamed up with iHeart to build a new platform that allows Steelers Nation to connect with the team - where they want and on their terms."

The new agreement features year-round programming across the "Steelers Audio Network," including over 1,000 hours of live and on-demand Steelers programming each season. Live Steelers programming will now be featured weekdays, up to 8 hours per day, throughout the season on Fox Sports Pittsburgh, iHeartMedia's local over-the-air sports station.

"We are thrilled to continue our collaboration with the Pittsburgh Steelers," said iHeartSports President Kevin LeGrett. "Our renewed agreement, now known as 'Steelers Audio Network' encompasses a comprehensive range of audio offerings, delivering an exceptional listening experience for Steelers fans. Additionally, we're excited to provide promotional support and further brand awareness across all six iHeartMedia Pittsburgh stations and digital sites. Our longstanding partnership continues to thrive, and we look forward to celebrating many more victories together."

"iHeartMedia Pittsburgh and the Steelers have had a longstanding partnership," added iHeartMedia Pittsburgh Market President Tim McAleer. "We are thrilled to continue to give Steelers fans access to Steelers audio broadcasts and unique Steelers programing content for years to come."
