Entercom, Redskins Agree To New Broadcast Partnership
Entercom and the Redskins have agreed to a new broadcast partnership that will "enhance coverage of the team on Entercom’s five DC radio stations," while bringing Spanish broadcasts of "every Redskins game to the company’s El Zol Deportes station," according to Scott Allen of the WASHINGTON POST. WJFK-FM will "rebrand its Friday programming lineup as 'Redskins Football Fridays,' which will include additional Redskins analysis and guests." WPGC-FM will "feature Redskins players on its weekday afternoon show." In addition, WJFK and WPGC will "become 'official tailgate partners' of the Redskins." Such a partnership would have "seemed impossible" before Redskins Owner Dan Snyder "got out of the radio business" by selling his flagship property, WTEM-AM, to media conglomerate Urban One in May. WTEM remains the "flagship home for Redskins games, as well as pregame and postgame shows." Telemundo’s Moises Linares and El Zol Deportes’s Juan Romero will "provide play-by-play and analysis for every remaining Redskins game this season" on WJFK-AM (WASHINGTONPOST.com, 10/2).
