ESPN has retained the radio rights to games featuring the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) New York Knicks and the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League (NHL).

The multi-year deal, which was agreed by the Disney-owned sports network and MSG Networks, will see ESPN New York 98.7FM broadcast live games as well as full pre-game and post-game coverage for both teams throughout their respective seasons.

In addition, Knicks and Rangers audio content will be available to stream live on ESPNNewYork.com and the ESPN app.

The precise length and financial details of the renewed contract were not disclosed. ESPN New York 98.7FM has provided radio coverage of both franchises since 2004.

“With a shared vision for serving our fans, we’re excited to renew our partnership and continue to deliver unrivalled radio coverage of the Knicks and Rangers,” said Adam Levine, executive vice president of business affairs and distribution at MSG Networks.

Tim McCarthy, vice president & general manager for 98.7 ESPN, added:  “As 98.7 ESPN continues to expand our listener base, the Knicks and Rangers serve as an integral component of our programming line-up.”
