SportsRadio 94WIP and Philadelphia Phillies Announce Extension of Broadcast Rights Agreement

 

The Philadelphia Phillies and CBS RADIO's SportsRadio 94WIP today announced an extension of their broadcast partnership for live play-by-play coverage of Phillies pre-season, regular season and post-season games. The new agreement begins this month with live coverage of the team's spring training games from Bright House Field in Clearwater, Florida.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

"This is an exciting time for the future of Phillies baseball," said David Buck, Phillies Senior Vice President Marketing and Advertising Sales. "Thanks to our long-time partner CBS RADIO, fans will be able to follow all of the action from spring training through the regular season on SportsRadio 94WIP."

Added David Yadgaroff, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, CBS RADIO Philadelphia, "We are happy to continue the tradition of broadcasting Phillies baseball. SportsRadio 94WIP is proud to be the radio home of the fightin' Phils and we look forward to an exciting 2016 season."

Phillies hometown radio announcers Scott Franzke, Larry Andersen and Jim Jackson will provide commentary of the games on SportsRadio 94WIP. The station will continue to broadcast "Leading Off," a half-hour pregame show that is broadcast prior to Phillies coverage. "The Final Out," a half-hour postgame show, will be broadcast immediately after Phillies coverage during the season. SportsRadio 94WIP will host regular broadcasts from the NovaCare Broadcast Booth, a permanent radio studio built on the concourse within Citizens Bank Park.

The Phillies are among nearly 30 professional sports teams featured on CBS RADIO stations across the country. As the leader in sports radio, the division of CBS is home to such legendary MLB teams, including the New York Yankees, Chicago Cubs, St. Louis Cardinals, and Detroit Tigers, among others.
