S-F Radio: KNBR 1050, MLS Earthquakes Ink Deal

Cumulus Media’s KNBR 1050 (KTCT-AM) and the San Jose Earthquakes announce that they have entered into a multi-year agreement, making the all-sports station the new radio flagship of the Bay Area’s MLS team.

KNBR 1050 will broadcast all games plus pre-game and post-game shows on one of the region’s strongest radio signals, and will stream all broadcasts at and through the KNBR app.

Jed Mettee, Executive Vice President, San Jose Earthquakes, said: “We are looking forward to a great partnership with KNBR. KNBR is one of the top sports radio brands in the country and we are happy to be a part of the station’s wide array of entertaining programming. With all the great talk shows and live sports, it is an ideal location for fans to listen to Quakes games.”

Jeremiah Crowe, Program Director of KNBR 1050 and Assistant Program Director of KNBR 680, said: “We couldn’t be more excited about the partnership between these two energized brands. The Quakes are a perfect fit for KNBR 1050’s expanding lineup and their game day experience is second-to-none across the market. We look forward to bringing that experience to the local airwaves and our loyal listeners starting March 4th.”
