106.7 The Fan has agreed to terms with the Washington Capitals to serve as the team’s radio partner in the nation’s capital. As part of the deal, Capitals games, along with pre and post-game shows, will be made available on the airwaves of Washington, D.C.’s leading sports radio brand.
“We’re thrilled to bring Capitals hockey back to DC’s top-rated sports station,” said 106.7 The Fan Program Director Chris Kinard. “Caps fans don’t want to miss a second of action, and now they’ll hear games and complementary programming throughout Washington via our full-market FM signal. To round out game broadcasts, 106.7 The Fan will also offer listeners weekly segments with players John Carlson and Jay Beagle, bi-weekly interviews with head coach Barry Trotz, and the weekly call-in show, ‘Crashing the Net.’”
Capitals radio play-by-play announcer John Walton returns for his seventh season behind the mic, along with former Capital Ken Sabourin who enters his 15th season offering analysis for all Capitals games.
“106.7 The Fan is the true leader in sports programming throughout our region and we are excited to renew our partnership with them and provide our fans with great Caps coverage and original programming all season long,” said Jim Van Stone, president of business operations and chief commercial officer of Monumental Sports & Entertainment. “Fans can expect 106.7 The Fan to deliver comprehensive coverage through the partnership, and in addition to airing our games, we look forward to working with them to deliver outstanding Caps-related programming throughout the season.”
