The Buffalo Sabres today announced the team has agreed to a multi-year extension of a broadcast agreement with Entercom, LLC that will keep WGR 550 as the flagship station for Buffalo Sabres hockey in the Buffalo radio market. The deal will enable WGR 550 to continue simulcasting all Buffalo Sabres games and also be the home for several weekly segments featuring Sabres front office personnel.
WGR 550 has been the home for Buffalo Sabres games since 2005 and will continue to carry every game live with the team’s veteran broadcast team of Rick Jeanneret and Harry Neale. The station will also continue airing a pre- and post-game show.
Additionally, the station will air several weekly segments with Sabres President Ted Black, General Manager Darcy Regier and Head Coach Lindy Ruff. Kiss 98.5 (WKSE-FM), WGR’s sister station, will also be airing a monthly segment with Kim Pegula, the wife of team owner Terry Pegula. Pegula will be appearing on Janet & Nick in the Morning.
