A's Baseball Moving To Free FM

Oakland Athletics Logo (1970)This morning's Contra Costa Times reports that the American League Western Division champion Oakland Athletics will drop KNTS/1220 for the 2007 season, moving to 80,000-watt Free FM 106.9 (KIFR) as their flagship station, with additional local coverage on KYCY/1550.

KYCY and KNTS had shared local flagship status on the team's broadcasts this past season.

In the Times article, Jonathan Okanes noted that the A's had tried to get CBS/SF to carry the games on 106.9 last season, "but CBS Radio was hesitant because the station had just launched a new format."

Guess that ain't a problem no more...
