It's Official: Mets Moving To WOR
In addition to all the games being broadcast on Clear Channel's WOR-AM for the next five years, the Mets will be marketed across all six Clear Channel New York stations. The Mets and Clear Channel will also work together on in-game entertainment at Citi Field and jointly explore the production and promotion of concerts, festivals, and large-scale entertainment events at Citi Field. The Mets needed a new home when WFAN picked up the Yankees.
Clear Channel Entertainment CEO John Hogan said, "WOR is a powerful, high potential complement to our existing New York brands, and it's an incredible opportunity for us to be able to bring the Mets programming to WOR's lineup and the rest of our New York cluster. We look at this investment not only as an opportunity to establish WOR as a destination to a broader audience, but to also to drive further awareness and growth of the Mets through our unique multiplatform capabilities and programming -- radio, digital, outdoor, and live events."
"This breakthrough partnership provides us with the ability to serve our loyal fans and attract a new generation of fans through Clear Channel's massive reach and ability to target key demographics across the New York market," said Mets COO Jeff Wilpon. "Our agreement delivers more promotion of the club to a broader audience than this franchise ever has had before with additional opportunities to advance our efforts to make Citi Field one of the leading sports and entertainment destinations in the country."
