Milwaukee radio station WTMJ-AM (620) will remain the home of Milwaukee Brewers game broadcasts, the two organizations announced they extended their radio-rights agreement.
While neither organization released the terms of the agreement, it covers a multi-year period.
WTMJ, which is owned by E.W. Scripps Co. of Cincinnati, has been the flagship station for the Brewers for all but two seasons since the team moved to Milwaukee in 1970 from Seattle.
Bob Uecker continues as the anchor of the broadcasts in his 46th year as voice of the Brewers. Uecker is joined by Jeff Levering, who is in his second year on Brewers broadcasts, and Lane Grindle, who is in his first season.
“WTMJ is a heritage brand in Milwaukee, and they are committed to activating all of their resources to make this a terrific partnership with our organization,” Brewers chief operating officer Rick Schlesinger said in a press release.
Said Steve Wexler, vice president of radio for Scripps: “We’re thrilled to continue this strong, mutually beneficial partnership with the Brewers.”
Scripps also owns country station WKTI-FM (94.5) in Milwaukee.
