KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Starting in February, Kansas City Chiefs fans will have a new place to catch the team's games on the radio.
The organization announced Thursday that 106.5-FM The Wolf will become the new flagship station of the 70-station network, replacing 101.1-FM The Fox.
Long-time play-by-play announcer and “voice of the Chiefs” Mitch Holthus will continue to call games on the new station.
The new flagship station is part of the Entercom Communications Corporation. As part of Thursday’s announcement, the team said that 610-AM will become the official radio partner of the Chiefs, a partnership that includes the Chiefs Kingdom radio show on Monday nights.
“We look forward to partnering with 106.5 The Wolf and the powerful Entercom family of stations,” Chiefs President Mark Donovan said in a release. “The ability to bring our game broadcasts and existing weekly radio shows under one roof is a large part of this change, but we are equally excited about creating new content and developing new opportunities for Chiefs fans to engage with their favorite team.”
