The NFL’s Atlanta Falcons will have a new flagship station in 2015 as game broadcasts will be heard exclusively on CBS Sports “92.9 The Game” WZGC Atlanta.
The Falcons have signed a multi-year agreement to make WZGC the exclusive radio home of all Falcons game broadcasts. WZGC replaced Lincoln Financial Media Hot AC “Star 94” WSTR as the FM home of Falcons game broadcasts just prior to the start of last season, while their “ESPN 790 The Zone” WQXI remained as the official flagship.
The Atlanta Falcons today announced that they have agreed to a multi-year deal with CBS RADIO Atlanta’s 92.9 The Game to become the club’s official radio broadcast partner.
92.9 The Game will become the Falcons flagship radio station for all preseason and regular season broadcasts. All 20 Falcons games will be heard on 92.9 The Game (92.9 FM). In addition to the game broadcast, 92.9 The Game will provide listeners with a pre-game show that will include interviews with the team’s head coach , General Manager Thomas Dimitroff, Quarterback Matt Ryan, and Falcons Team President Rich McKay.
“CBS RADIO Atlanta is a solid broadcaster that is committed to providing Falcons fans with the most innovative, complete and comprehensive coverage from a radio perspective. We are excited to bring Falcons football back to the CBS RADIO family and a familiar spot on the dial for our fans,” said Jim Smith, Falcons Executive Vice President, Chief Marketing & Revenue Officer.
“NFL programming is among the most sought after content for broadcasters, driving appointment listening and attracting more and more fans weekly,” said Rick Caffey, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, CBS RADIO Atlanta. “The Atlanta Falcons have been wonderful partners and we look forward to expanding the relationship to deliver the best experience for the fans.”
Following the game, fans can stay tuned to 92.9 The Game to catch post-game analysis and exclusive interviews with players and coaches. Fans will still hear the familiar voices of Falcons broadcasters Wes Durham (play-by-play) and former Falcons quarterback Dave Archer (color analyst) calling all of the Falcons action.
