The Nets and CBS RADIO, which owns WFAN, announced Thursday they have reached an agreement to extend their multiyear broadcast rights deal.
“Our relationship with CBS RADIO continues to give us a major voice in the nation’s largest market,” said Brett Yormark, CEO of Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment. “This new agreement comes on the heels of our recent extension with YES Network, providing the team with premium exposure on two of the country’s most popular sports outlets.”
“CBS RADIO is proud to continue our association with the Brooklyn Nets and Barclays Center,” said Andre Fernandez, president of CBS RADIO. “We have defined our position in sports broadcasting by delivering the most extensive coverage of local programming and events, and we continue to make aggressive investments in exclusive content our audiences can’t find anywhere else.”
WFAN has served as the Nets’ flagship station since the 2004-05 season. WCBS 880 will continue to be the team’s secondary broadcast outlet, airing select matchups.
The agreement also covers other Barclays Center events, including some college basketball games and concerts, as well as continuing the weekly “Brooklyn Nets Report” on WFAN.
