In a move designed to give listeners easy access to its Sports Talk stations and Sports-focused podcasts — as well as a new advertiser lure — iHeartMedia has launched IHeartRadio.com/sports as a one-stop shop inclusive of nearly 200 live offerings.
Through the microsite, such offerings as “FOX Sports Radio” affiliates and top iHeart Sports Talk O&Os such as KLAC-AM in Los Angeles and KFAN-FM 100.3 in Minneapolis can be streamed. Then, there is the podcast play, with episodes from more than 25,000 sports podcasts including The Herd with Colin Cowherd, 3 and Out with John MiddleKauff, Outkick the Coverage with Clay Travis, Sports Wars and more.
“iHeartRadio has long been a destination for the biggest sports fans and now provides the premier destination where they can find all their favorite teams, podcasts, personalities and stations all in one place,” said Darren Davis, President of iHeartRadio and iHeartMedia Networks Group. “Sports listeners are incredibly passionate and this new destination utilizes the power and reach of iHeartMedia and its programming to create an encompassing all-things-sports experience like no other, for those enthusiastic fanatics everywhere whether it’s getting outstanding play-by-play of the latest Dodgers game to sports betting podcasts for expert picks and analysis.”
FOX Sports Radio, a division of Premiere Networks in partnership with FOX Sports, reaches more than 15 million monthly listeners on more than 500 affiliates. It has some of the biggest hosts in sports and entertainment, including Colin Cowherd, Dan Patrick, Clay Travis, Doug Gottlieb, Rich Eisen, Chris Broussard, Rob Parker and R.J. Bell.
The iHeartMedia radio brands feature stations holding play-by-play broadcast agreements with the Dodgers, Clippers, Kings, Chargers and UCLA in Los Angeles; the Vikings, Wild and Gofers in Minnesota; the Reds, Bengals and University of Cincinnati Football and Basketball in Cincinnati; the Broncos, Rockies and University of Colorado Football in Colorado; the Indians and Cavaliers in Cleveland; the Miami Marlins and Florida Gators in Florida; and more.
In June, the company launched iHeartRadio Sports Daily – a newsletter featuring top sports stories and videos that are sent out daily to sports fans.
