CLEVELAND, OH— Entering the 2017-18 season, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Cleveland Monsters have each announced multi-year agreements with iHeartMedia Cleveland to serve as the official broadcast home for NBA Cavs basketball and AHL Monsters hockey. 

iHeartMedia Cleveland’s WTAM 1100 AM will continue as the long-time radio home of the Cavs, broadcasting all 82 Cavs regular season games, as well as the five preseason games and all playoff games - which will also simulcast live on sister station 100.7 WMMS, Cleveland’s Rock Station. Both WTAM 1100 AM and 100.7 WMMS will also serve as flagship stations for the 30-station Elk & Elk Cavs Radio Network that reaches 38 states and half of Canada.

Veteran broadcaster John Michael will return for his 7th season as play-by-play announcer and will be joined by Cavalier Legend Jim Chones, who will be back for his 8th season as color analyst. Returning for his 26th year is studio host Mike Snyder, who will anchor all pregame, halftime and postgame shows. Former OSU great and NBA player Brad Sellers is back for his 7th year as post-game studio analyst.

Each broadcast on the Cavaliers Radio Network begins 30 minutes prior to game time with “The Huntington Tip-Off Show,” an inside look at the upcoming game including a preview of the Cavaliers game with the Cavs coaching staff and John Michael. Following each game is “Tito’s Nightcap Recap,” the Postgame Call-In Show with Snyder, Chones and Sellers taking fan calls and providing game analysis, along with comments from players in both locker rooms, and Coach Lue’s postgame press conference.

For the second consecutive year, all 76 regular-season Monsters games will broadcast live on 99X (99.1 FM WMMS-HD2), Cleveland’s New Rock Alternative. Fans can once again catch all Monsters games live by listening to 99X on 99.1 FM, the station’s website www.99xcleveland.iheart.com, as well as iHeartRadio.com and the iHeartRadio mobile app, available on over 100 unique device platforms.
