In an unprecedented media event, Cumulus San Francisco will air a Mega-cast of the NFC Championship Game on all 6 of its Bay Area stations, it was announced today by Lee Hammer, Director of Operations.
The San Francisco 49ers will play the New York Giants for the NFC Championship this Sunday (1/22/12) at Candlestick Park. The announcement by Cumulus means the game will now air on flagship stations KNBR 680/1050 and 107.7 The Bone as well as KGO 810, KSFO 560 and KFOG 104.5/97.7.
With their beloved San Francisco 49ers playing exceptional post season football, the passion of the 49er Faithful has escalated to an extraordinary pitch. The idea of opening up the broadcast to a 6 station Mega-cast seemed a natural for Cumulus.
“The 49ers are thrilled with this unprecedented promotion to have the NFC Championship Game heard virtually everywhere in the market,” said Director of Broadcasting Bob Sargent. “We are unaware of any NFL team that has had this kind of support from its radio partner. We are thankful to Cumulus for their support to bring such exposure to the 49ers and our loyal fans throughout the region.”
All 6 stations will begin pre-game coverage at 2:30 p.m. followed by the kickoff at 3:30 p.m.
KNBR will offer extended coverage, including live updates from the field, beginning at 9 a.m. Sunday morning.
