Nationals announce that 106.7 The Fan will be flagship station

By Cindy Boren

The Washington Nationals have announced that 106.7 The Fan will be their flagship radio station.

"With 106.7 The Fan's great roster of talent and focus on local sports programming, it seemed only natural to add Nationals game broadcasts to the station's lineup," Andrew Feffer, the Nationals' chief operating officer, said in a statement. "In addition to offering our fans more Nationals programming than ever before, this partnership will help extend our promotional reach through various local radio stations across the D.C. region."

The move was reported earlier this month by Nats Insider and the Goessling Game. As Dan Steinberg earlier reported, on the few nights the Wizards and Nats overlap in April, the Nats will be heard on 1500 and 1580. On nights the Caps and Nats overlap, the Caps will stay on 1500.

Well, I hope the coverage is better than it was when the 'Skins had it. The transmission seemed spotty.

Whatever, it's great to have a radio station [I hope they can also get a good AM -- if they can find something between the preachers, the Koreans, and the Hispanics.....]. This time, the Nats are going to be in Washington until the last sundown......

Ouch...bad news. 1500 am comes in very well throughout the region. 106.7 is variable. Do they still cut their power at night? It doesn't seem like a wise move, but perhaps there was more than we know in these negotiations...

106.7 doesn't Lose signal strength at night.
