The New Jersey Devils and WFAN Sports Radio 66 AM and 101.9 FM today announced the extension of their multi-year partnership, in which the CBS RADIO all-sports station will continue to broadcast the team’s regular and post-season games. The joint announcement was made by Devils’ President/General Manager Lou Lamoriello and CBS RADIO New York Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Don Bouloukos.
Additionally, WFAN will once again broadcast 15 minute pre- and post-game shows surrounding every game.
“The New Jersey Devils are proud to continue our long-standing relationship with WFAN,” said Lamoriello. “Their commitment to sports programming on a 24-hour/year-round basis will provide us with the best possible radio exposure to reach our fans.”
Said Bouloukos, “We are looking forward to another exciting year of Devils hockey, and appreciate working with such a first-class organization both on and off the ice. This announcement ensures audiences will hear the same captivating game coverage they’ve come to expect from WFAN.”
The 2013-14 season will mark the ninth straight year WFAN will serve as the Devils’ radio broadcast home. Matt Loughlin will enter his eighth season as the team’s play-by-play announcer, while Sherry Ross is in her seventh straight year as color commentator, after re-joining the organization in 2007-08.
