Titans move from KDF to Zone

Friday, February 19, 2010 at 6:17pm

The Tennessee Titans games will be switching to WGFX-FM 104.5 The Zone beginning with draft coverage this April.

The Titans and Titans Radio have been anchored on The Zone’s sister station WKDF-FM 103.3. Both stations are owned by Citadel Broadcasting.

The Titans Game Day coverage, both pre-game and postgame will also be moving to The Zone.

“It’s made perfect sense for us for a long time to take brand of Titans Radio, which has been part of our company for almost 13 seasons, even when the Oilers were playing in Tennessee and blend that with our sports station,” Zone program director Brad Willis said. “We’ll kick off our coverage in April with the draft.”

Willis went on to say that having the Titans on The Zone will allow fans to hear games on the same station they normally come to in Nashville for Titans football coverage anyway.

“It’s an exciting time for us and we’re fortunate to have had the resources of Titans Radio in our building for awhile now and to be able to partner up with The Zone and put that with what is already a destination for Titans fans on a daily basis,” Willis said. “We’ll be able to super serve them in a way like we never have before.”

In addition to the Titans coming to The Zone, Vanderbilt University’s football and basketball broadcasts and coaches shows will be leaving 104.5 next fall and moving to WRQQ-FM 97.1, which becomes the new flagship station for the Commodores.

Last paragraph: "in addition to the Titans moving to the Zone, the Vandy games will be leaving the Zone". WTF? How does a "leaving constitute an addition"? That's just horrible journalism! Nevertheless, our beloved Titans are not really changing radio hands. They'll still be covered by the same old awkwardly amateurish team of "commentators". Whatever. Mike Keith is "the voice". The rest just suck. All of em.

Wasn't the pre-Zone 104.5 the original home for the Tennessee Oilers? I can see some changes coming to the Zone because of this move, with a stronger Game Day presentation and better through-the-week Titans coverage. I also suspect that this is a better situation for some Titans Radio affiliates in that KDF could also be heard in their area. If you've ever lived in other NFL cities, you'll recognize the Titans Radio Team is one of the most superior NFL Radio teams around. It is certainly the largest radio network among all NFL teams, and you don't get that way by being "awkwardly amateurish". Kudos to the whole Titans Radio Team, one of the best and hardest-working sports radio teams in the country.
