Caps to Remain With Bonneville
Washington Capitals games will remain on Bonneville's WFED 1500 AM frequency next season, a source with knowledge of the situation confirmed tonight. The source requested anonymity, because the multi-year deal has not yet been signed.
The Capitals also talked with CBS Radio's new sports talk station 106.7 The Fan, which recently signed a multi-year deal with the Washington Wizards, and with Red Zebra's ESPN 980, the hockey team's former radio home, before reaching an agreement with Bonneville The news was first reported by Jim Williams at the Examiner.
The Caps spent the previous two seasons on 1500, which boasts a strong signal but which also serves as the Nationals' local radio partner. That necessitated creative scheduling with the sports overlapped; the Caps' entire 14-game playoff schedule appeared on WJFK 106.7 this spring, before that station had flipped to sports.
Steve Kolbe will continue to serve as the team's radio play-by-play voice.
