Gow Broadcasting, L.L.C., operator of Yahoo! Sports Radio in partnership with Yahoo! Sports, is adding Birach Broadcasting's WCAR AM 1090 Detroit as a full-time affiliate beginning Monday, May 12th. WCAR will carry Yahoo! Sports' full lineup of network of shows and switch from NBC Sports Radio - the network the station picked up after ESPN Radio moved from WCAR to Detroit Sports Radio 105.1 (WMGC-FM).
"We have been experiencing tremendous growth in 2014, adding affiliates in a number of strategic markets, such as St. Louis, Las Vegas and Reno, said David Gow, CEO of Yahoo! Sports Radio. We are delighted to announce today our newest affiliate in Detroit. We are excited to convert WCAR to Yahoo! Sports Radio, and to build a connection with the passionate sports fans of Detroit."
"Our lineup of guys like Steve Czaban, Bob Ryan, Travis Rodgers, Sean Salisbury, Dan Wetzel and Pat Forde is one of the top rosters in the country. Our content is fueling significant growth for the network." said Craig Larson, COO of Yahoo! Sports Radio.
