In the Bay Area, all Raiders games will be broadcast on KCBS-740 AM, the “Home of the Raiders,” while select games will also be broadcast on 95.7 KGMZ-FM and 106.9 KFRC-FM. Beasley Media Group is in its second year as the Las Vegas radio partner for the Silver and Black, and will broadcast Raiders games on 102.7 The Coyote (KCYE-FM) and 720 AM (KDWN-AM).

Brent Musburger, one of the most prominent voices and personalities in sports broadcasting, joins the radio team as the Silver and Black’s new play-by-play voice for 2018. Musburger will be joined on the call for all Raiders games this season by former All-Pro tackle Lincoln Kennedy, who moves to the booth to handle color analyst duties, and Chris Townsend, who will report from the sidelines.
Musburger called countless major sporting events during his time at CBS and ABC/ESPN from 1975-2017. He worked play-by-play on NFL games and hosted the groundbreaking studio show, “The NFL Today,” at CBS, while also calling the NCAA Final Four, NBA basketball, the Masters, U.S. Open tennis, boxing, horse racing and Major League Baseball. He was the voice of college football for ABC/ESPN, calling seven BCS national championships. He also called NBA and college basketball games, golf, NASCAR and soccer. Musburger is a member of the National Sports Media Association Hall of Fame and received the Vin Scully Lifetime Achievement Award in Sports Broadcasting in 2016.
Kennedy returns to the Raiders’ radio team, having served three years as the broadcast’s sideline reporter. Originally a first-round pick out of the University of Washington by the Atlanta Falcons in 1993, Kennedy joined the Raiders in 1995 and started 119 games in eight seasons with Oakland. He was named to three Pro Bowls during his time with the Raiders, garnering second-team All-Pro honors in 2001 and first-team All-Pro recognition in 2002. Kennedy was a part of three-straight AFC West division championships with the Raiders from 2000-02, helping the team to an AFC Championship crown in 2002. He is currently a broadcaster for FOX Sports and Premiere Radio Networks.
Townsend joins the radio team for his first season on the sideline with the Silver and Black. A veteran radio and television personality with two decades of broadcasting experience in the Bay Area, Townsend has been an integral part of the “Silver and Black Show” for the past two seasons, and has handled both pregame and postgame hosting duties for Raiders broadcasts. He also currently hosts Oakland Athletics pregame and postgame shows and has covered numerous Bay Area teams on both radio and television.
