The Oakland Raiders announced today a multi-year agreement for CBS RADIO San Francisco's LIVE 105 (105.3 KITS-FM) to broadcast play-by-play coverage of the team's pre-season, regular season and post-season games. Listeners can hear the games on-air and in HD quality through HD Radio receivers in the Bay Area.
In addition to LIVE 105's coverage, CBS RADIO San Francisco's KFRC-AM 1550 will simulcast the games. The station will offer listeners a wealth of Raiders related content, including extensive pre and post game programming designed to both entertain and engage the Raider Nation.
This exclusive agreement was negotiated by Compass Media Networks, owner and syndicator of the broadcast rights for all Oakland Raiders English language broadcasts.
"The Raider Organization is delighted to announce an exciting new relationship with Compass Media Networks, pursuant to which Raider games will be broadcast in the Bay Area on KFRC 1550 AM and KITS Live 105 FM, as well as a broad affiliate network in California and beyond," said Oakland Raiders Chief Executive Amy Trask.
"The Oakland Raiders have a tremendous heritage and brand in our community," said Doug Harvill, Senior Vice President & Market Manager for CBS RADIO San Francisco. "Adding the Oakland Raiders football games to our lineup is a natural fit and a powerful attraction to LIVE 105's rock audience and KFRC's oldies fans. We are thrilled to become even more local in our already successful effort to attract and entertain Bay Area listeners."
"We are honored to work with the Oakland Raiders and CBS RADIO," said Peter Kosann, Chief Executive Officer of Compass Media Networks. "Our goal is to significantly increase the number of stations carrying Raiders football. This announcement is just the beginning."
