With WJFK 106.7 set to turn to a sports-talk format before the end of the month, the CBS Radio-owned station has started collecting sports properties. First up were the Wizards; their games will appear on WJFK for at least the next two seasons, multiple industry sources confirmed today. WJFK remains in negotiations with other local college and professional franchises.
The Capitals have yet to sign a new radio deal; their two-year agreement with Bonneville expired after the '09 season. The Capitals and Wizards have previously shared a broadcast partner; both teams had deals with what was then WTEM 980 earlier this decade, with the Caps often being moved to other frequencies when the teams played simultaneous games.
