GLENDALE, ARIZONA — Arizona Coyotes Co-Owner, President and CEO Anthony LeBlanc announced Thursday that the Coyotes have signed a new three-year agreement with Bonneville Phoenix Media and Marketing to broadcast all Coyotes home preseason games, all 82 regular season games and all playoff games in the Valley on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM, ESPN Phoenix 620 AM and KTAR News 92.3 FM. As per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“We are thrilled to renew our partnership with Bonneville Phoenix,” said LeBlanc. “Arizona Sports 98.7 FM, ESPN Phoenix 620AM and KTAR News 92.3 FM provided our fans with outstanding Coyotes coverage last season and we look forward to three more years of Coyotes hockey broadcast on the Valley’s leading sports and news radio stations.”

“We couldn’t be more excited to extend our partnership with the Arizona Coyotes,” said Scott Sutherland Bonneville Phoenix Vice President/Market Manager. “Adding the Coyotes to the Arizona Sports team one year ago was one of the best decisions we’ve made, and this season we plan to deliver more Coyotes content than ever to the great hockey fans in the Valley.”

Coyotes’ game broadcasts on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM, ESPN Phoenix 620 AM, and KTAR News 92.3 FM will all include 30 minutes of pre-game coverage prior to the puck drop and 30 minutes of coverage after the game concludes. The post-game show will include player interviews and a live broadcast of Coyotes Head Coach Dave Tippett’s post-game press conference.

Coyotes’ Radio Play-by-Play Announcer Bob Heethuis will return for his 10th season with the team to call all games on the Coyotes Radio Network. Heethuis will be joined in the radio booth this season by former Coyotes’ defenseman Nick Boynton who will provide radio color analysis for all 82 games. The Coyotes pre- and post-game show will be hosted by Luke Lapinski. Todd Walsh will continue to contribute features to the broadcasts.

In addition, Arizona Sports 98.7 FM will air two weekly Coyotes shows featuring Captain Shane Doan and Head Coach Dave Tippett, and a bi-monthly show with interviews from Co-Owner, President and CEO Anthony LeBlanc and EVP and General Manager Don Maloney.

Fans outside the Phoenix market can enjoy listening to all Coyotes games through the team’s affiliate stations in Flagstaff (KVNA), Lake Havasu (KNTR), Prescott (KDDL/KQNA), Safford (KATO) and Sedona (KAZM).
