The NFL’s Oakland Raiders are Vegas bound in 2020. For their last year in Oakland, KYMT-FM/Las Vegas (93.1 The Mountain) is getting in early to cover the Raiders’ 2019 season and get into the groove of things. Under a new agreement, the iHeart station will broadcast pre-season, regular season, and post-season games.
The Raiders pre-season action kicks off on Saturday, August 10, from the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum; the regular season will begin on September 9 with Monday Night Football and will broadcast the Oakland Raiders up against Denver Broncos.
The on-air broadcast will continue to be produced by Compass Media Networks and will feature live commentary from Brent Musburger, former All-Pro tackle Lincoln Kennedy, who handles color analyst duties, and Chris Townsend, who will report from the sidelines.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with a storied franchise like the Raiders,” said Glynn Alan, iHeartMedia’s Region President for Central California and Nevada. “Having an addition of a pro-football team to our programming combined with commentary from the legendary Brent Musburger will allow our listeners and local fans the opportunity to experience and keep up with each game on real time.”
