CLEVELAND - Three Cleveland radio stations will air Browns games starting next season as part of a new rights deal.
Two all-sports stations, ESPN 850 WKNR and CBS Radio’s 92.3 The Fan, as well as 98.5 WNCX, another CBS station, will broadcast the team’s games over their airwaves as part of a long-term “triplecast” agreement.
Jim Donovan and Doug Dieken will both remain in their respective play-by-play and analyst roles. Jamir Howerton will continue providing sideline reports.
Both The Fan and WKNR will also provide pre- and post-game coverage. WKNR will have a four-hour pregame show and 92.3 The Fan a two-hour post-game show.
The deal extends to other year-round programming as well. A weekly coach’s show will air on both stations and a weekly preview show on WKNR.
Vic Carucci-hosted “Cleveland Browns Daily,” which currently airs on WKNR Monday through Friday from 6-7 p.m., will expand to two hours and air in a time slot to be announced at a later time.
Browns games had most recently aired on WMMS 100.7 and talk WTAM 1100.
