The Philadelphia Flyers announced on Monday they will be switching to 97.5 The Fanatic to broadcast all of their games in the regular and postseason starting in the 2012-2013 season.
The Flyers parent company commented on the move:
"We're thrilled to be working with a partner that is 100-percent committed and excited about the Philadelphia Flyers," Comcast-Spectacor President Peter Luukko. "We're also happy that the Sixers have moved over to Greater Media Radio, along with us. Greater Media Radio is an incredible partner which offers us numerous promotional support for the Flyers on all their stations."
Tim Saunders will continue to handle play-by-play duties and Chris Therien will work color.
The new deal for the Flyers coincides with 97.5 scoring the rights to broadcast Sixers games over the weekend. Previously both teams were covered by WIP causing a scheduling conflict when the two Philadelphia teams played at the same time. Fans hoping for top billing may be disappointed when their favorite Philly team is moved to a different station as in year's past.
