It’s a 3-year extension between the Minnesota Wild of the National Hockey League and iHeartMedia’s KFAN 100.3 FM. The Twin Cities station will broadcast all preseason, regular season, and Stanley Cup Playoff games through the 2019-2020 season. It will also have a pre-game preview and postgame show, and will continue to host Wild Weekly as well as Wild Fanline after select games. KFAN is currently in its sixth season as the official radio flagship home of the Minnesota Wild.
“We’re thrilled to continue our great partnership between KFAN and the Minnesota Wild,” said Jeff Tyler, President of the Western Great Lakes Region for iHeartMedia. “Listeners count on us to deliver the excitement of Wild hockey and it’s an important part of our day-to-day programming on KFAN and something all of our iHeartMedia radio station brands in the Twin Cities takes pride in.”
“In addition to being an outstanding partner, KFAN has proven to be a great fit for Wild fans,” said Wild Chief Operating Officer Matt Majka. “We’re excited to renew our partnership and continue delivering the extensive coverage Wild fans have enjoyed.”
