The Miami Dolphins are returning to Sports Radio 560 WQAM in Miami. The two sides confirmed they have entered into a long-term partnership which makes the radio station the official flagship radio partner of the franchise. The Dolphins previously aired on WQAM during the 1997-2004 and 2007-09 seasons. In addition, all Dolphins games will be simulcast on Kiss 99.9 “South Florida’s NEW Country” and feature expanded pre, halftime and postgame shows.
“We are excited that we reached this agreement to return home to Miami’s Sportsradio 560 WQAM,” Miami Dolphins President & CEO Tom Garfinkel said. “This expansive and exclusive programming throughout the week and on game day will greatly benefit fans that have a desire to consume Dolphins content on multiple outlets in partnership with CBS Radio.”
“We have rich broadcast history with the Miami Dolphins and are proud that the team is returning to Sportsradio 560 WQAM,” CBS RADIO President Andre Fernandez said. “This further demonstrates our strong and steadfast commitment to the sports radio format, and making continued moves in delivering extensive and exclusive programming on our stations. We are excited to bring premier content to our loyal fans and listeners on Sportsradio 560 WQAM and Kiss 99.9.”
As part of the agreement, WQAM will have the radio broadcast rights for all preseason, regular season and playoff games. The radio station will also carry live broadcasts of Head Coach Adam Gase’s day-after game press conferences, and “Dolphins Friday,” a day of Dolphins’ centric-content on the station featuring interviews with players, coaches, and team executives. Additionally, CBS RadioO Miami will promote Dolphins community and foundation initiatives across multiple platforms.
