PHILADELPHIA FLYERS ANNOUNCE RENEWED PARTNERSHIP WITH GREATER MEDIA PHILADELPHIA
July 7, 2015
The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that the team has renewed its broadcast partnership with Greater Media Philadelphia, including 97.5 The Fanatic, which will continue as the flagship station of the Flyers Radio Network as part of a multi-year agreement.
The partnership will continue the Flyers broadcast schedule on both 97.5 The Fanatic (WPEN) as well as legendary rock station, 93.3 WMMR-FM through the 2015-16 season and beyond. Games will also include pre-and post-game shows on both networks surrounding the live game broadcasts.
As part of the agreement, all Greater Media Radio stations, which also include 102.9 FM WMGK and 95.7 FM WBEN, will remain promotional partners with the Flyers. First partnering in 2012 as Greater Media’s first local professional team, the Flyers frequently host special promotions with popular Greater Media shows such as 97.5 The Fanatic’s Mike Missanelli Show and WMMR’s Preston and Steve Show.
“We are thrilled to renew this important partnership with Greater Media,” said Flyers Chief Operating Officer Shawn Tilger. “The promotional support, both for the team as well as for our corporate partners has been invaluable. We are excited to continue the momentum of the first three years of this partnership.”
“We are proud to be the radio home of the Flyers for years to come,” said Greater Media’s Vice President/Market Manager John Fullam. “The Flyers are extraordinary partners. The Fanatic and WMMR are thrilled to connect passionate Flyers fans with their team all season long.”
Veteran play-by-play broadcaster Tim Saunders and color commentator Steve Coates will return in their roles for the 2015-16 season.
