There's a perception (fair or unfair) that ESPN 980 is for the Redskins, whereas 106.7 The Fan is for every other team. Considering Dan Snyder owns ESPN 980, it's an understandable perception.â†µ
The University of Maryland athletics department, Terrapin Sports Marketing, and Red Zebra Broadcasting announced today a multi-year agreement in which ESPN980 will become the new D.C., affiliate for the Terrapin Sports Radio Ntwk beginning with the 2010 football and basketball seasons. ESPN980 can be heard throughout the D.C. metropolitan area on 980-AM (WTEM), 92.7FM and 94.3FM.â†µ
There will be more that'll come out about this, but I, for one, am happy the station is doing something other than Redskins.
