The Fan began carrying Westwood One content on Sunday August 3, 2008 with the airing of the Hall of Fame Game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Washington Redskins.
“We are very excited to be partners with Westwood One,” said Dave Shore, Program Director for 99.9 The Fan. “The Triangle is a great sports area that deserves world-class sports radio.”
