The St. Louis Blues and CBS Radio’s St. Louis stations announced today they have reached a multi-year broadcast rights agreement that will begin at the start of the 2015- 16 season.
The agreement expands the existing partnership between the Blues and CBS Radio St. Louis, which includes Newsradio 1120 KMOX, KYKY 98.1 FM (Y98) and KEZK 102.5 FM.
The 2015-16 season marks the 41st year KMOX has served as the flagship radio station of the Blues. Under the new agreement, KMOX will continue broadcasting regular season and postseason games, select preseason games and a 30 minute pregame show. Y98 will also broadcast select Blues games as they have done in previous years.
One of the most significant changes under the agreement is the creation of new Blues-related programming on KMOX. In addition to existing game coverage, KMOX will introduce three new weekly shows during the season and will also carry a 30 minute Blues postgame show.
Blues broadcast team Chris Kerber and Kelly Chase will continue on-air coverage of Blues games on KMOX. Kerber and Chase will also be featured on new programming along with John Kelly, Darren Pang and Blues hall of famer Bernie Federko, among other Blues personalities. New shows will offer in-depth coverage of a variety of hockey-related topics including coaching strategy and a recap of weekly hockey news. Additional details about new programming will be announced at a later date.
