This morning it was announced that the Browns have entered a unique partnership with Cleveland radio stations, the first of it's kind in the NFL. Chris mentioned this last night, but the Browns officially announced the deal this morning.
Since their return in 1999, Browns games have been broadcast on Clear Channel, but with that contract expiring recently, it opened the door for new endeavors. A las, this new deal came to fruition. Now Clevelanders can hear Browns games on "triplecast" - ESPN 850 WKNR, 92.3 WKRK, and 98.5 WNCX. Browns games will now be aired on 1 ESPN affiliate and 2 CBS affiliates. This is an unprecedented partnership in the NFL.
Jim Donovan and Doug Dieken will still be on the calls. You can check out the full release here. It sounds like this is yet another step in the right direction by new owner Jimmy Haslam. Creating more exposure for the Browns brand, in my mind, is always a good thing.
Go Browns radio!
