CINCINNATI (AP) - The Reds have renewed their radio rights agreement with flagship station WLW through 2017.
The Cincinnati radio station first went on the air in 1922 led by Powel Crosley, Jr., who would later own the ballclub. The station first broadcast a Reds game in 1924 and has served as the team's flagship station since 1969. The club's radio network includes 93 radio affiliates in nine states, one of the largest in professional sports.
Marty Brennaman is starting his 40th year of broadcasting Reds games on WLW. He's one of three Reds radio broadcasters who have received the Ford C. Fricke Award from baseball's Hall of Fame, along with Red Barber and Russ Hodges.
