The Kansas City Chiefs will be broadcast on a new radio station in 2020: 106.5 The Wolf (WDAF-FM), moving on from 101.1 The Fox, which had Chiefs games since 1990.

The Chiefs and Entercom announced the move in an official press release.

Also in the agreement — 610 Sports Radio will become the official broadcast partner of the Chiefs, meaning “exclusive rights to various categories of Chiefs programming, including live radio broadcast rights to the Chiefs weekly in-season press conference with the club’s head coach and a weekly one-on-one interview with the starting quarterback.”

610 Sports will also broadcast the Chiefs Kingdom Radio Show on Monday nights from 6 to 7 p.m. Arrowhead Time, which is hosted by Mitch Holthus.

The quotes

Chiefs president Mark Donovan: “We look forward to partnering with 106.5 The Wolf and the powerful Entercom family of stations. The ability to bring our game broadcasts and existing weekly radio shows under one roof is a large part of this change, but we are equally excited about creating new content and developing new opportunities for Chiefs fans to engage with their favorite team.”

Entercom regional president and market manager Dave Alpert: “We are extremely pleased to enter into this new partnership with the Kansas City Chiefs, one of the NFL’s most well respected and prestigious organizations. Entercom’s eight-station cluster of music, news and sports talk stations hosted by Kansas City’s leading personalities, along with vast digital and podcast opportunities, will deliver the premium and comprehensive coverage Chiefs Kingdom desires seven days a week, all season long.”
