Premiere, FOX Sports re-up


FOX SportsThey’ve announced a long-term extension of their agreement for Premiere Networks to continue producing and distributing the FOX Sports Radio Network’s programming to nearly 400 affiliates in the US and Canada.

Premiere and FOX Sports will continue working together across multiple platforms to synchronize the audio, digital, online and television assets of FOX Sports, and FOX Sports Radio, further extending the reach, visibility and engagement of these brands with millions of consumers. Additionally, with the recently-launched 24-hour television network FOX Sports 1, the radio and television divisions will work closely to increase cross-promotional opportunities and highlight FOX Sports’ established team of top insiders, analysts and personalities, including NFL Insider Jay Glazer, NFL Analyst Kirk Morrison, NBA Insider Bill Reiter and more.

Earlier this year, FOX Sports Radio debuted a new weekday lineup featuring the top sports talk personalities in the country.  Jay Mohr, Dan Patrick, Steve Gorman, J.T. “The Brick,” Jason Smith, Andy Furman and Mike North, are among the network’s lineup.

“It was a no-brainer,” said Bill Wanger, Executive Vice President, Programming, Research and Content Strategy for FOX Sports. “This broadens our fan base by putting the FOX Sports brand across audio platforms.  We’re excited to continue and further enhance our relationship with Premiere Networks to provide quality programming to sports fans.”
