BOSTON -- The Buffalo Bisons have announced a three-year extension of their radio contract with newly-named ESPN1520, the former WWKB. It runs through the 2016 season. The 50,000-watt station, which has a strong reach up and down the Eastern seaboard, has been the home of the Herd since 2008 and was rebranded in September as an ESPN affiliate.
The partnership will include all 144 regular season Bisons’ games, the broadcast of the annual Triple-A All Star Game (next year’s game is on July 16 in Durham), all Bisons’ postseason games and the Triple-A National Baseball Championship Game.
The Bisons open 2014, their second season as a Toronto affiliate, on Thursday, April 3 against Rochester in Coca-Cola Field at 2:05 p.m.
