The Golden State Warriors and Entercom’s 95.7 The Game (KGMZ-FM) in San Francisco have inked a new multi-year deal making the station the new flagship of the Warriors. 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.
KGMZ General Manager Steve Dinardo said, “We know that our fans turn to us for the best-in-class sports content from the teams and leagues they care about the most. The Warriors are one of the most popular basketball teams in the world and we are proud to deliver play-by-play broadcasts and 24/7 team coverage to local fans in the Bay Area, and to be the official home of Warriors basketball.”
Plans for 95.7 The Game’s expanded Warriors programming include an additional 60 minutes 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. 95.7 The Game will continue to employ a dedicated Warriors reporter who will cover both home and road games and practices throughout the season. Radio play-by-play announcer Tim Roye will return for his 22nd season calling Warriors basketball, and will also appear regularly on 95.7 The Game programs on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday during the season and on selected off-season dates.
