The NFL’s Chargers have made the trek up the Pacific Coast Highway, moving from San Diego to Los Angeles for the 2017 season – and that means new radio alliances. The Los Angeles Chargers have agreed in principle to multi-year radio agreements that will make iHeartMedia Los Angeles and KFWB 980 AM the team’s official flagship radio partners.
“We strive to provide Chargers fans with the best experience in every way possible,” said A.G. Spanos, Chargers President of Business Operations. “Whether it’s on-field performance, in-venue experience, season ticket member service or, in this case, unparalleled television and radio access throughout the LA region, placing a premium on our fans and their relationship with us is of the utmost importance.”
As the Chargers’ flagship English-language radio partner, iHeartMedia Los Angeles will air all preseason, regular season and postseason Chargers games on KFI AM-640. In addition to game broadcasts, KFI AM-640, Alt 98.7, and AM 570 LA Sports will broadcast 10 hours of gameday coverage. iHeartMedia Los Angeles’ eight radio stations will also support the Chargers with year-round programming and promotional content, including a weekly Chargers series that will air on AM 570 LA Sports during the season.
KFWB 980 AM (Lotus Communications) will serve as the Chargers’ flagship Spanish-language radio station. KFWB 980 AM will broadcast all preseason, regular season and postseason Chargers games, including pre- and postgame shows. The station will also air a weekly Chargers series throughout the season.
