Westwood One Partners with NBC on Belmont Coverage

As Justify attempts to become just the 13th horse to win the Triple Crown, Westwood One partners with NBC Sports to provide radio coverage.

The 150th running of the Belmont Stakes marks the fourth consecutive year of NBC Sports and Westwood One covering the event. Similarly to their Kentucky Derby broadcast, Mike Penna of the Horse Racing Radio Network will anchor the coverage. Penna will again be joined by analyst Kurt Becker along with reporters Tom Leach and Steve Goldstein.

Contributors to the coverage will also include retired jockey Jeff Bloom and former CBS Radio head Dan Mason who recently spoke with BSM President Jason Barrett about joining the Vegas Stats and Information Network.

The NBC Sports Westwood One coverage will begin this Saturday, June 9th at 5:30pm ET lasting until 7pm. The Belmont Stakes can be heard on NBC Sports Radio affiliates, NBCSportsRadio.com, NBCSports.com, the NBC Sports Radio mobile app, SiriusXM and TuneIn.
