Cumulus Media’s KNBR-AM and the San Francisco Giants MLB team have agreed to a new seven-year contract that will keep Giants games on KNBR throughout the 2018 season. Giants’ President and CEO Larry Baer and Cumulus CEO Lew Dickey made the announcement 3/6 on KNBR’s “Murph & Mac” show.
This 2012 season will mark the 34th year that KNBR has proudly served as the Giants Flagship station, a period that’s included some of the most dramatic moments in Giants history: the 1989 World Series, the opening of AT&T Park in 2000, the 2002 World Series, Barry Bonds’ pursuit of the all-time home run record and the 2010 World Series Championship.
Anchored by Hall of Fame award winning play-by-play announcer Jon Miller and Bay Area favorites Mike Krukow, Duane Kuiper, and Dave Flemming, the Giants boast one of the finest broadcast teams in Major League Baseball today. In addition to the play-by-play broadcasts, other popular Giants programming includes the pre-game “Kruk & Kuip Show” and the “Post Game Wrap”. The Giants will also continue to have a presence on KNBR year-round with the “Hot Stove League” show.
KNBR 680/1050 “The Sports Leader” is also the flagship station for the NFC West Division Champion San Francisco 49ers, Golden State Warriors, San Jose Sabercats, Stanford Football & Basketball.
