SportsRadio 106.7 The Fan To Serve As the Flagship Station of the Washington Wizards
The Washington Wizards and WJFK-FM announced today that the new Sportsradio 106.7 The Fan will serve as the team’s flagship radio station. Sportsradio 106.7 will air all Wizards regular season, preseason and postseason games, as well as pre-game and post-game shows before and after all Wizards broadcasts. Dave Johnson, the longtime radio voice of the Wizards, will continue to serve as the broadcast voice for play-by-play, while Glenn Consor will once again provide analysis.
“We’re very excited to partner with WJFK and to be a part of the new Sportsradio 106.7 The Fan,” said Wizards Executive Vice President Matt Williams. “The Fan has put together a very exciting daytime lineup, and Wizards fans will be able to follow every minute of Wizards basketball on an FM signal, a concept that has proven to be very successful with other NBA teams. With All-Star Gilbert Arenas returning to the Wizards lineup, joining fellow All-Stars Caron Butler, Antawn Jamison, this should be an exciting season to debut for Wizards games on Sportsradio 106.7 The Fan.”
“We are proud to partner with the Wizards as their flagship,” said Sam Rogers, Senior Vice President and Market Manager of CBS RADIO Washington, DC. “We are looking forward to broadcasting the pre-season, regular season, postseason and the championship. The Wizards are key to our success. It is an honor to bring fans in the DC area a new outlet to discuss, analyze and listen to their favorite teams, as well as the best in local sports. With CBS RADIO’s recent success in the FM sports arena, along with the company’s world renowned AM sports stations, Sportsradio 106.7 The Fan is poised to be the next generation of sports programming for our area.”
