Oakland Raiders sign with Entercom’s KGMZ-FM


EntercomThe team’s play-by-play coverage is moving from CBS Radio’s Alternative KITS-FM San Francisco to Entercom’s Sports KGMZ (95.7 The Game) under a multi-year agreement for the new flagship.

The Game will air coverage of Raiders Football preseason, regular season and postseason games.

“We are delighted to begin this exciting new relationship with 95.7 The GAME and we look forward to working with Compass Media to establish a broad affiliate network throughout California and beyond,” said Oakland Raiders Chief Executive Amy Trask.

“The best NFL coverage in the Bay Area just got even better,” said Dwight Walker, Vice President/General Manager of Entercom San Francisco. “We welcome the Raider Nation, one of the most passionate and engaged fan bases in the NFL, to 95.7 The Game.”

Programming will include pre-game and post game shows complete with key interviews, locker room reaction and listener phone calls.  Rounding out Raiders coverage on 95.7 The GAME will be weekly call-in shows with Head Coach Dennis Allen and other key Raiders players and personnel. Every Monday during the NFL season will be re-branded on the station as “Raiders Mondays.”

The Game is also the broadcast home of Oakland Athletics baseball. In the event of a programming conflict with A’s baseball, Oakland Raiders football will be heard on sister station KFOX 102.1/98.5.

The agreement was negotiated by Compass, owner and syndicator of the broadcast rights for all Oakland Raiders English language broadcasts. Compass Media is responsible for all aspects of the broadcasts of all Oakland Raiders preseason, regular season, and post-season games on terrestrial radio.

“Our goal is to super serve the Raider Nation and for those fans living in the Bay Area, 95.7 The Game offers expanded Raiders coverage on game day and virtually every day,” said Peter Kosann, Compass CEO.
