Townsquare Media announced a batch of changes to its Northland radio stations.
The list includes acquiring the broadcast rights for Minnesota Vikings football games for the 2020-2024 seasons. Beginning next season, Vikings games will be heard on WWAX 92.1 FM and WEBC 106.5 FM and 560 AM, Townsquare said Thursday.
Townsquare said it will begin operating WWAX on Feb. 1 and expects to enter a purchase agreement for it from Twin Ports Radio. Then, it plans on moving classic rock station Sasquatch 106.5 FM to WWAX 92.1 FM while all the sports programming and The Fan Radio Network will move to WEBC 106.5 FM and 560 AM.
WEBC had been the Northland radio home of the Vikings for several years until KQDS 94.9 FM and the Fan 1490 AM earned the rights for the broadcast rights for the games beginning in the 2009 season.
