At long last, Titans Radio goes satellite

For years, it’s been a hovering question which officials never did well to explain.

The Titans were the lone team in the NFL who’s radio broadcasts were not part of satellite radio.

Finally, as part of a new contract, Tennessee will join the rest of the league and fans will be able to hear Mike Keith and Frank Wycheck’s call of the games.

From Jim Wyatt:
The Titans have agreed to multiyear extensions with their radio and local television partners, and part of the agreement will be music to the ears of some fans.

The new contract with Citadel Broadcasting Corporation, which owns flagship station WGFX 104.5-FM, includes a stipulation that will allow home games to be broadcast on SiriusXM. The Titans were the only NFL team without their own broadcasts on satellite radio. The Titans also continued their agreement with Young Broadcasting, Inc. It owns WKRN-2, which broadcasts preseason games and will carry Coach Mike Munchak’s weekly TV show.

(Disclaimer: I am part of the morning show with Wycheck on 104.5.)

This news doubtlessly will shuffle the order of the most popular questions in the AFC South blog mailbox and in our chats, as a lot of people wanted the backstory on why the Titans were not on.

It was silly for them not to be and it's better late than never as far as them fixing it.
