The Miami Dolphins and Miami’s Sportsradio 560 WQAM today announced they have entered into a long-term partnership with the station becoming the official flagship radio partner of the franchise. The Dolphins previously had their games broadcast on Miami’s Sportsradio 560 WQAM during the 1997-2004 and 2007-09 seasons. In addition, all Dolphins games will be simulcast on Kiss 99.9 “South Florida’s NEW Country” and feature expanded pre, halftime and postgame shows.
“We are excited that we reached this agreement to return home to Miami’s Sportsradio 560 WQAM,” Miami Dolphins President & CEO Tom Garfinkel said. “This expansive and exclusive programming throughout the week and on game day will greatly benefit fans that have a desire to consume Dolphins content on multiple outlets in partnership with CBS RADIO.”
“We have rich broadcast history with the Miami Dolphins and are proud that the team is returning to Sportsradio 560 WQAM,” CBS RADIO President Andre Fernandez said. “This further demonstrates our strong and steadfast commitment to the sports radio format, and making continued moves in delivering extensive and exclusive programming on our stations. We are excited to bring premier content to our loyal fans and listeners on Sportsradio 560 WQAM and Kiss 99.9.”
As part of the agreement, Sportsradio 560 WQAM will have the radio broadcast rights for all preseason, regular season and playoff games. Dolphins fans who tune into Miami’s Sportsradio 560 WQAM will have the opportunity to listen to live broadcasts of Head Coach Adam Gase’s day-after game press conferences and “Dolphins Friday,” a day of Dolphins’ centric-content on the station featuring interviews with players, coaches, and team executives.
