Twin Cities Radio: NFL Vikings, iHM Extend Broadcast Deal

The Minnesota Vikings and iHeartMedia’s KFAN 100.3 FM and KTLK 1130 AM have announced a five-year extension renewing broadcast rights of the Vikings preseason, regular season and postseason games.

“Our focus as an organization is always to provide the best fan experience possible, regardless of whether those fans are attending games at the stadium, watching on television or listening on the radio,” said Vikings Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Steve LaCroix.

“Reaching this agreement means we can continue to offer Vikings fans the best radio broadcast team in the NFL as we open the new stadium in 2016 and beyond. We are excited to extend and grow this partnership with not just KFAN but all iHeartMedia Minneapolis stations.”

The 2015 season will mark the 15th consecutive year KFAN will serve as the Flagship for the Minnesota Vikings Radio Network, one of the largest radio networks in the NFL. The extension will also include continued co-produced Vikings-related football programming on KFAN and the incorporation of promotional events and game coverage across all of the iHeartMedia Minneapolis brands and platforms, including on-air, online and via iHeartMedia’s all-in-one digital music and radio service.

To celebrate the continued partnership, iHeartMedia will broadcast live from the New Stadium Preview Center this Friday, May 1. KFAN’s Paul Allen will go live from 9:00-noon, followed by KOOL 108’s Lee Valsvik from noon-2:00 p.m. and K102’s Muss from 3:00-6:00 p.m. Vikings fans can join the festivities by and booking an appointment to tour the Preview Center on Friday.
