REPORT: More Cleveland Browns coverage from WKYC

On Thursday, the team announced that it has reached a radio flagship partnership with Entercom (92.3 The Fan) and Good Karma Brands (WKNR ESPN Cleveland). Both companies have served as the team's flagship radio stations since 2013.

“With football season right around the corner, we are excited to continue delivering premier coverage of the Browns to Cleveland’s biggest sports fans on two of our market-leading stations – both on the field and off of it,” Senior Vice President and Market Manager of Entercom Cleveland Tom Herschel said in a release. “We value our long-standing partnership with the Cleveland Browns and look forward to many more seasons as the flagship radio stations of the team.”

“We are thrilled to extend our partnership with the Cleveland Browns and Entercom,” said ESPN Cleveland Market Manager and Vice President of Good Karma Brands Sam Pines. “The power of live sports, particularly Cleveland Browns football, is baked into the fabric of the city and 850 ESPN Cleveland, and we look forward to supporting and being a partner of the Browns in the years ahead.”

Added Browns Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer Dave Jenkins: “Through our partnership with Entercom and Good Karma Brands, we have incredible opportunities and resources to consistently provide our fans with compelling radio programming on gamedays and throughout the year. We greatly appreciate Entercom’s and Good Karma Brands’ efforts to bring our fans even closer to our players, coaches and entire team and are excited to continue to produce these shows with them in the years to come.”

As a part of the deal, Entercom’s 92.3 The Fan (WKRK-FM) and sister station 98.5 WNCX (WNCX-FM) and Good Karma Brands’ 850 ESPN Cleveland will provide fans more than 20 scheduled hours of Browns coverage each week during the 2020 season, including nine hours through the University Hospitals Cleveland Browns Radio Network on game day.
