MLB shifts to ESPN Radio

Published on .

Major League Baseball sold radio broadcast rights for its regular season and post-season games to ESPN Radio, ending a relationship with CBS Radio that has spanned over 20 years. Under the terms of the five-year agreement, which begins next season, ESPN Radio will carry a variety of MLB programming, including a full but as yet undetermined scheduled of regular season games, one game every Saturday in September and at least two additional ``pennant race'' games each week in September, plus extensive coverage of the All-Star Game, major award announcements and the annual Winter Baseball meetings. ESPN Radio is distributed, sold, marketed and promoted by ABC Radio Networks.
