Cavs Add 95.5 WZOH in Columbus to Cavaliers Radio Network


CLEVELAND – WZOH Radio (95.5 FM) in Columbus will join the Cleveland Cavaliers Radio Network for the 2013-14 season, it was announced today by the station and the team. The station, which is part of Wilks Broadcasting, is a sports talk format and is known as 95.5 The Game, and the Cavs play-by-play team of John Michael and Jim Chones will now be heard throughout central Ohio.

In addition to airing all Cavs games – both preseason and regular season – 95.5 The Game will also carry full pre- and post-game coverage that will provide Cavs fans complete coverage during the season. Each game broadcast starts with the First Merit Tip Off Show, hosted by Mike Snyder, a 30-minute game preview. Following every game, The Verizon Wireless Call-in Show, also hosted by Snyder and featuring Chones and Brad Sellers, will recap the game with analysis, postgame interviews, and phone calls from the fans. Weekdays, fans can hear the daily Cavs Update – hosted by John Michael, airing at various times.

“We’re thrilled to have 95.5 The Game join the Cavaliers radio network,’ said Cavaliers President of Business Operations Kerry Bubolz . “Their plan and approach to covering the Cavs is very exciting and the Columbus region is an important part of our fan base across the state of Ohio. This partnership is great news for Cavs fans that now have another great way to stay connected with the team and enjoy the season like never before!”

"Columbus' new sports station, 95.5 The Game has been working diligently at building partnerships with professional sports franchises that are of interest to our Columbus listeners. When the Cavaliers became available in our market, says Wilks Broadcasting EVP of Programming, Jeff Sanders, It only made sense to build a solid, longterm relationship to super-serve the needs of Cavs fans in Columbus! We're very proud to make the Cavs part of 95.5 The Game's lineup! Looking forward to an incredible season!"
