Westwood One and the Masters Tournament announced the renewal of an agreement maintaining the syndicator as the exclusive radio play-by-play provider for the 2011 event. The renewed agreement provides Westwood One with on-course radio rights, including live hole-by-hole coverage. In addition, the broadcast will also be streamed live on the Tournament’s official Web site, www.masters.com.
“Westwood One is committed to maintaining its long-standing leadership position in play-by-play sports on radio,” said Westwood One President Rod Sherwood. “This renewal continues the longest running national radio broadcast partnership in all of sports, and we are looking forward to an exciting season of bringing listeners the highest quality sports broadcasts on the air in 2011.”
Westwood One has been the radio home of the Masters for nearly 60 years, providing exclusive play-by-play coverage of historic Tournament victories from defending champion Phil Mickelson to those of four-time champion Tiger Woods, Fred Couples, Nick Faldo, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and many more. In 2011, tournament dates are April 7-10.
