The Milwaukee Brewers Major League Baseball (MLB) team has extended its longstanding radio broadcast agreement with Newsradio 620 WTMJ.

Journal Broadcast Group-owned WTMJ has served as the Brewers’ flagship radio station for all but two seasons since the team relocated from Seattle to Milwaukee in 1969. The current agreement between the two parties runs until the end of the current season.

Exact terms of the new deal remain undisclosed.

“The Milwaukee Brewers and Journal Broadcast Group have one of the longest-standing partnerships in professional sports, and today’s news ensures that our work together will continue as we bring Milwaukee Brewers on radio to fans all over Wisconsin,” said Brewers chief operating officer Rick Schlesinger.

“WTMJ is committed to using all of their resources to covering the Brewers both on and off the field, and we are proud to continue this partnership as a great sports tradition.”

Steve Wexler, executive vice president of Journal Broadcast Group, added: "We are very proud to continue as the flagship station of the Brewers radio network. Baseball on the radio is the 'soundtrack of summer', and we're thrilled to provide that soundtrack for baseball fans across the state for years to come.”
