Radio Zindagi Moves As 95.7 The Game San Francisco Adds AM Simulcast

1550 The Game 95.7 KGMZ San FranciscoEntercom has flipped Brokered Indian “Radio Zindagi” 1550 KZDG San Francisco to a simulcast of their Sports “95.7 The Game” KGMZ.

The newly minted 1550 KGMZ and 95.7 KGMZ-FM will break the simulcast for play-by-play overlap including moving Oakland Athletics baseball to 1550 when 95.7 carries Golden State Warriors playoff games.

The “Radio Zindagi” programming will continue to air on Entercom’s 105.3 KITS-HD2, but has moved on AM to KLOK Media’s 1170 KLOK San Jose replacing its former “Desi 1170” Indian programming.

Entercom, the nation’s unrivaled leader in sports radio, announced today the launch of sports content on KGMZ-AM 1550 The GAME in San Francisco. The AM station will simulcast content from sister station 95.7-FM in San Francisco. In addition, KGMZ-AM 1550 will broadcast Oakland Athletics play-by-play during scheduling conflicts with Golden State Warriors playoff games.

“With the overlap of play-by-play between our athletic partners, we launched sports content on the AM frequency to provide our fans with more options to listen to all of their favorite games,” said Gregory Nemitz, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom San Francisco. “This also gives us the opportunity in the future to create additional exclusive programming on 1550-AM to super serve Bay Area sports fans.”

  1. Notable in that this fully reunites 95.7 with 1550; they operated and simulcast as a pair beginning at KOBY A/F in the late 1950s, lasting throughout the lifespan of KKHI A/F and ultimately as KPIX A/F from 1994-1997.


  2. This makes absolute sense simulcast for overlap sports programming…maybe perhaps down the road you may see them go after either espn or westwood one sports away again from KNBR…could be interesting to look forward…
