CBS’ WJFK-FM “The Fan” and WFED-AM in Washington, DC have won the right to broadcast the NHL team’s games. Capitals play-by-play announcer John Walton will return for his seventh season and former Capital Ken Sabourin enters his 15th season as analyst. Last year Caps games were heard on Hubbard’s WFED-AM. They were on The Fan for years before last year.
PD Chris Kinard said, “We’re thrilled to bring Capitals hockey back to DC’s top-rated sports station. Caps fans don’t want to miss a second of action, and now they’ll hear games and complementary programming throughout Washington via our full-market FM signal. To round out game broadcasts, 106.7 The Fan will also offer listeners weekly segments with players John Carlson and Jay Beagle, bi-weekly interviews with head coach Barry Trotz, and the weekly call-in show, Crashing the Net.”
