Atlanta Radio: Rock 100.5 To Air MLB Braves

The Atlanta Braves have partnered with Cumulus and Rock WNNX 100.5 in a multi-year agreement for them to become the team’s new FM home.

The game broadcasts begin with Braves Opening Day Thursday.

“Cumulus has been a great partner for the Braves radio network over the years and we are looking forward to having our games back on Rock 100.5,” said Derek Schiller, Atlanta Braves President and CEO.  “Rock 100.5 gives us a fantastic opportunity to bring the excitement of this young Braves baseball team to Atlanta’s favorite rock station.”

Rock 100.5 adds additional coverage to metro Atlanta on the FM dial.

“We’re excited to associate the Rock 100.5 brand with one of Atlanta’s iconic brands.  Our fan base maps perfectly with the Atlanta Braves,” said Sean Shannon, Vice President and Market Manager for Cumulus Atlanta.  “We’re looking forward to many sunny seasons of Atlanta Braves baseball on Atlanta’s best and only rock station, Rock 100.5.”

During the season the radio broadcast will feature combinations of four broadcasters – Ben Ingram, Jim Powell, Joe Simpson and Don Sutton.

The Braves enter the 2019 season as defending National League East Champions, with the reigning Rookie of the Year, Ronald Acuña and Manager of the Year, Brian Snitker.
