The Washington Nationals announced today that 106.7 The Fan will serve as the official flagship station for Nationals baseball games beginning with the upcoming 2011 season. Owned and operated by CBS RADIO, 106.7 The Fan has signed on to broadcast Nationals spring training match-ups as well as regular-season and postseason games. Charlie Slowes and Dave Jageler will serve as the team's radio voices during these broadcasts.
"With 106.7 The Fan's great roster of talent and focus on local sports programming, it seemed only natural to add Nationals game broadcasts to the station's lineup," Nationals COO Andrew Feffer said. "In addition to offering our fans more Nationals programming than ever before, this partnership will help extend our promotional reach through various local radio stations across the D.C. region."
As part of the agreement, 106.7 The Fan will broadcast a variety of Nationals-related programs, including daily reports from Nationals spring training, pre- and post-game shows, and hourly Nationals programs twice a week throughout the season. The station will also operate a studio set behind Section 106 at Nationals Park for pre-game and post-game coverage, and special live broadcasts of its local sports talk shows.
"We are pleased and proud to be the flagship for the Washington Nationals," said Sam Rogers, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, CBS RADIO Washington D.C. "106.7 The Fan is the market leader for sports and adding the Nationals to our already impressive roster of talent and play-by-play offerings only solidifies that. We look forward to being a part of the resurgence of major league baseball in D.C."
106.7 The Fan broadcasts a local lineup of sports talk shows including the Sports Junkies, Lavar Arrington, Chad Dukes, Mike Wise, and Holden Kushner. The station can be heard on-air, on-line at www.1067thefandc.com and via a variety of mobile devices.
