Baseball season is barely over and iHeartMedia Houston has jumped in quick to extend its broadcast deal with MLB’s Houston Astros, keeping Sportstalk 790 AM the home of the Astros. Fans will hear all regular and post-season games, in addition to pre-game, post-game, and other Astros-related programming on Sportstalk 790 AM. All the games will also broadcast on 94.5 HD channel 2, and many of the games will be simulcast on KTRH AM 740 and 99.1 HD channel 2.
“We are thrilled to extend our partnership with the Houston Astros,” said iHeart Radio Region President Eddie Martiny. “Sports Talk 790 will continue as the radio flagship station, and we are proud to be simulcasting games on KTRH 740 AM, one of the most powerful radio stations in America.”
“The iHeartMedia Houston team has been a great partner to us, and we’re excited to continue our relationship,” said Astros President of Business Operations Reid Ryan. “Now, Astros fans can listen to game broadcasts on 740 KTRH and 790 KBME, helping us reach fans with a better signal throughout the region.”
The Astros open the 2019 regular season on the road against the Tampa Rays on Thursday, March 28. Their first spring training game is set for Saturday, February 23.
The Astros and iHeartMedia have enjoyed a 20-year partnership, bringing Astros games to the Houston airwaves since 1999.
