The Brooklyn Nets and CBS RADIO have reached an agreement to extend their multi-year broadcast rights agreement. WFAN-AM/FM, the most listened to sports radio station in the nation, will continue as the team’s flagship radio station.

“Our relationship with CBS RADIO continues to give us a major voice in the nation’s largest market,” said Brett Yormark, CEO of Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment. “This new agreement comes on the heels of our recent extension with YES Network, providing the team with premium exposure on two of the country’s most popular sports outlets.”

“CBS RADIO is proud to continue our association with the Brooklyn Nets and Barclays Center,” said Andre Fernandez, President, CBS RADIO. “We have defined our position in sports broadcasting by delivering the most extensive coverage of local programming and events, and we continue to make aggressive investments in exclusive content our audiences can’t find anywhere else.”

The deal extends beyond basketball to cover other parts of the business at Barclays Center, including select college basketball games under the BROOKLYN HOOPS™ presented by Ticketmaster franchise and joint-programmed concerts and live events.
