Padres' radio broadcasts moving to FM in 2017

Club's games will be on KBZT 94.9 after 13 years with Mighty 1090

SAN DIEGO -- The Padres have announced a partnership with Entercom for the 2017 season, which will give exclusive broadcasting rights to KBZT 94.9 FM for games next year.

Ted Leitner and Jesse Agler will return as the play-by-play announcers for the Padres' radio broadcasts, as the club will transition to an FM station for the first time in its history.

"We are very excited about our partnership with Entercom and the ability to offer Padres games on the FM dial," Padres chief marketing officer Wayne Partello said in an Entercom press release. "As we aim to connect with all of San Diego, Entercom San Diego's ability to reach 1.1 million people per week across all of their stations will play a large part in these efforts."

According to Entercom's press release, the partnership will bring 30 minutes of pregame and postgame coverage to all Padres games throughout the season.

The club's decision to partner with Entercom brings an end to the Padres' partnership with the Mighty 1090, which had broadcast games for the past 13 seasons.
