The Saskatchewan Roughriders and 620 CKRM, a Harvard Radio Station, are proud to announce an extension of their radio broadcast rights agreement which began in 1983. As per team policy, terms were not disclosed.
“We are delighted to extend our partnership with the Saskatchewan Roughrider Football Club,” said Cam Cowie Vice President and COO Harvard Broadcasting. “With the extension, CKRM will continue to be the football clubs trusted voice to Rider Nation, over the air in Saskatchewan on 620am and around the world via live stream on 620CKRM.com and direct on the Rider App.”
“Our entire broadcast team led by Rod Pedersen (16th season) and Carm Carteri (26th season) is dedicated to delivering an informative, professional and engaging game day experience second only to being in Mosaic Stadium,” Cowie continued. “Harvard’s commitment to Rider Nation and the football club goes well beyond the game day broadcasts with CKRM’s SportsCage - the daily Source for all things Green & White”.
“We are ecstatic to continue our partnership with Harvard Radio’s 620 CKRM,” Riders President and CEO Jim Hopson noted. “Rod and Carm are two of the best in the business and have become a staple on Rider Game Day.”
2014 will mark the 31st year and 32nd season that 620 CKRM has been the flagship station of the Rider Radio Network which includes affiliates GX94 Yorkton and 600 CJWW Saskatoon.
