WMAL To Carry Washington's NFL Football Team - Cumulus news talker WMAL, 105.9 FM/630 AM, will carry Washington's Pro Football games starting this fall.

Games will continue to be carried on Red Zebra's sports talk ESPN 980, WTEM, which is owned by team owner Dan Snyder. "The broadcasts represent a homecoming of sorts, as Washington will return to the same WMAL airwaves on which the team's broadcasts aired as early as 1942," according to a Washington statement. WMAL carried the team through the early 1990s, when Washington moved to WJFK until 2008.

"In addition to carrying game broadcasts, WMAL will carry an hour of Washingtons' Network pregame show as well as an hour of Washingtons Radio Network postgame programming" on game days, the statement adds.

WTEM is also heard on 92.7 FM and 94.3 FM, in addition to 980 AM. "We are very excited to be partnering with WMAL to provide the Washington fans enhanced coverage of our games," says Terry Bateman, Washington chief marketing officer. "WMAL and the Washington organization have a long history together spanning six decades of the station carrying Washington's games.

We have maintained a strong relationship over the years and now look forward to working together again to provide comprehensive coverage of Washington Professional football for the Washington market." Adds Jake McCann, DC market manager for Cumulus, "We are excited and honored to be working with Washington again. Washington and WMAL were partners during the team's three glorious Super Bowl winning seasons. We look forward to bringing the combined assets of WMAL to this exciting, renewed partnership"...
