ESPN Loses Affiliate In Detroit...For Now

7-21-13

NBC Sports has snagged an ESPN affiliate in Detroit. Birach Broadcasting's WCAR-AM (1090) is changing from ESPN to NBC, according to Dial Global. Dial Globals Executive VP/GM, Sports Chris Corcoran says, As we near a major milestone, adding our 300th station to NBC Sports Radio, we couldnt be happier to be so tightly affiliated in such an important market like Detroit. We look forward to bringing amazing, full-throttle sports talk to the Motor City."

ESPN has been on WCAR since February of 2012. WCAR PD Mark Wilson says, Its an exciting time for us as we rebrand to NBC Sports Radio in fact  we have already received tremendous feedback from our listeners and the reaction on social media has been terrific.

Glad to see NBC Sports is clearing the way for affiliate time. KBAD 920 Las Vegas has joined full time in July.
