OAKLAND (KTVU) -- The Golden State Warriors announced Thursday that they have a new flagship radio partnership with radio station 95.7 The Game and virtually all of the team's games will be heard on The Game.
Tim Roye will return for his 22nd season calling Warriors games, according to a statement issued by the Warriors. The deal marks the end of 32 straight seasons of partnership with KNBR 680 AM.
“We’re excited about our new partnership with 95.7 The Game and the opportunity to provide our fans with increased coverage of the Warriors in a centralized location,” Warriors President and COO Rick Welts said in a written statement. “Under the terms of this partnership, virtually every Warriors game – including the playoffs – will be broadcast on 95.7.
According to the team's statement, the plans for 95.7 The Game’s expanded Warriors programming include an additional houe of coverage to each of the existing 30-minute pre and post-game programs, heightened in-season daily Warriors coverage featuring both Warriors and NBA-themed shows, Warriors Wednesdays and off-season programming centered around the draft, free agency, summer league and the continuation of selected in-season call-in shows.
Prior to partnering with 95.7 The Game, the Warriors flagship station for each of the last 32 seasons, and for 40 seasons overall since the team moved to the West Coast in 1962, had been KNBR 680 AM.
“We’d also like to thank KNBR and the management at Cumulus for being a valued and trusted partner for nearly four decades,” said Welts. “KNBR has been a staple of the Bay Area airwaves for many years and we’ve been extremely fortunate to enjoy such a terrific long-standing relationship.”
