The Oklahoma City Thunder are headed to Kansas City after partnering with KWOD 1660 AM. The Entercom owned KWOD will serve as the Thunder Radio Network’s 15th affiliate with Kansas City being their 13th city.
“Adding OKC basketball is a perfect fit for us, with 1660 The Score and Entercom’s dedication to play-by-play,” said KWOD program director, John Hanson. “Kansas City is a town of great basketball fans. It’s a natural fit to bring them the exciting brand of basketball the Thunder plays.”
KWOD will simulcast the game feed from Thunder flagship WWLS The Sports Animal 98.1 FM in Oklahoma City where Matt Pinto serves as their radio play-by-play voice.
“We’re excited to add KWOD 1660 AM to the Thunder Radio Network to serve Thunder fans in the Kansas City area,” said Dan Mahoney, vice president of Broadcasting for the Thunder. “Kansas City is a vital part of the Thunder region and this station is a natural fit for Matt Pinto and our radio broadcast.”
