The Orioles today announced that they have signed a multi-year deal with 1090 AM WBAL Radio to become the club's radio flagship station. The partnership with WBAL Radio marks the 42nd year since Baltimore returned to the major leagues 57 years ago that the station has originated Orioles broadcasts. Orioles games were most recently heard on WBAL Radio in 2006. The station first broadcast O's games in 1957, the club's fourth season.
"We are excited to reestablish our relationship with WBAL Radio," said Orioles Director of Communications Greg Bader. "Both the Orioles and WBAL Radio have a long and proud tradition in this region and we are pleased to once again call them our flagship as we look forward to an exciting 2011 season."
WBAL Radio will broadcast all 162 Orioles 2011 regular season games, as well as a selection of spring training contests. Joe Angel and Fred Manfra will return to call the action on the Orioles Radio Network.
