St. Louis Cardinals Sign Five Year Extension With KMOX
Entercom News/Talk 1120 KMOX St. Louis has signed a five year extension to remain the home base of the St. Louis Cardinals Radio Network through the 2024 season.
After first broadcasting a game in 1926, KMOX has served as the flagship for the Cardinals from 1954-2005 and again since 2011. The extension with the Cardinals comes after losing the NHL’s St. Louis Blues to Hubbard Sports “101 ESPN” WXOS earlier this year.
As part of the deal, the Cardinals will also continue to be heard on Entercom’s “92.9 ESPN” 680 WMFS/92.9 WMFS-FM Memphis.
Entercom, a leading media and entertainment company and the unrivaled leader in sports radio, and the St. Louis Cardinals have announced a multiyear broadcast extension. As part of the agreement, News Radio 1120 KMOX (KMOX-AM) will continue to serve as the flagship station for Cardinals baseball through the 2024 season.
“We are honored to continue to work with the world class St. Louis Cardinals,” said Becky Domyan, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom St. Louis. “News Radio 1120 KMOX and the Cardinals are synonymous institutions here in this great city and we couldn’t be more excited to continue this fantastic partnership.”
“We are thrilled to extend our agreement with our partners at KMOX and proud to continue the great tradition of broadcasting Cardinals baseball on the voice of St. Louis,” said Bill DeWitt III, President, St. Louis Cardinals.
As part of the agreement, the station will continue providing play-by-play coverage of all regular and postseason games, as well as select Spring Training games. The broadcast team of veteran announcers Mike Shannon, John Rooney, Ricky Horton and Mike Claiborne will also return to handle the play-by-play coverage. In addition to game broadcasts, News Radio 1120 KMOX will also carry a variety of other Cardinals-related programming throughout the year, including the popular “Countdown to Opening Day” during the offseason.
Since the partnership began back in 1955, game broadcasts on News Radio 1120 KMOX have consistently been among the top-rated radio programs in the St. Louis market.
Listeners can also hear the games on FM dials via an HD radio-capable device in the St. Louis area on sister stations 102.5 KEZK (KEZK-HD2) and 929 FM ESPN/680 AM (WMFS-FM/AM) in Memphis as part of the Cardinals Radio Network.
