The deal announced 1/4 will bring Bills NFL games to All-Sports WGR-AM. The games had been carried from 1998 through 2011 on Cumulus Media’s 97 Rock and 103.3 The Edge. Starting with the 2012 preseason exhibitions, the multiyear agreement also calls for new live programs featuring head coach Chan Gailey, General Manager Buddy Nix and Chief Executive Officer Russ Brandon, as well as player-hosted shows, to appear on various Entercom stations, which also include WBEN, KISS 98.5 and Star 102.5.
The Buffalo Bills Radio Network will also be heard on 21 other stations throughout New York State, including Entercom’s WCMF (96.5 FM) and WROC (950 AM) in Rochester.
John Murphy will continue as the radio voice of the Bills, working with analyst Mark Kelso.
“The NFL is a 365-day-a-year, 24/7 business now,” Brandon said. “This allows us to bring fans across our entire demographic up-to-the minute information.”
WGR is also the radio home of the Buffalo Sabres.
