Confirming week-old reports, Redskins owner Daniel Snyder yesterday announced the purchase of three local radio stations that will carry the team's games starting next season.

Snyder's new media company, Red Zebra Broadcasting, said it was buying WBPS-FM-94.3, WBZS-FM-92.7 and WKDL-730. The stations will continue to broadcast Spanish-language pop music for the time being, said Bennett Zier, the Clear Channel radio executive Snyder hired last week to run his broadcasting properties.

The three stations have relatively weak signals. Snyder has not said how he intends to reach listeners throughout the Washington area, but he could buy another station or ally with a network of local stations to carry Redskins games.
