It looks as though the Pirates will return to CBS Radio next season if the rumors are true…and it’s likely that they are. The 5-year contract between the Pirates and Clear Channel is up at the end of this season and reports say that CBS Radio has persuaded the baseball team to return, but this time on KDKA-FM (93.7). The Pirates’ radio home was KDKA-AM (1020) for about 50 years before moving over to WPGB-FM (104.7). Bob Smizik reminds us that the move to the Clear Channel station was for better radio promotions.
