KFAN and the Minnesota Wild Extend Rights Deal

Good news for Minnesota Wild fans this holiday season. The team has announced it’s agreed to a new three-year extension of its radio agreement with flagship station KFAN.

As part of the extension, all Wild preseason, regular season and Stanley Cup Playoff games will air on the radio station through the 2019-2020 season. That includes pre-game and postgame shows, and ancillary programming (Wild Weekly and Wild Fanline).

“In addition to being an outstanding partner, KFAN has proven to be a great fit for Wild fans,” said Wild Chief Operating Officer Matt Majka. “We’re excited to renew our partnership and continue delivering the extensive coverage Wild fans have enjoyed.”

We’re thrilled to continue our great partnership between KFAN and the Minnesota Wild,” said Jeff Tyler, president of the Western Great Lakes Region for iHeartMedia. “Listeners count on us to deliver the excitement of Wild hockey and it’s an important part of our day-to-day programming on KFAN and something all of our iHeartMedia radio station brands in the Twin Cities takes pride in.”
