As anticipation builds for the Green Bay Packers' 2022 season ahead of next week's NFL Draft, the Packers Radio Network is preparing to broadcast to listeners with key changes in place.
First announced last fall, the Packers Radio Network has now officially transitioned to a new flagship station in Milwaukee, iHeartRadio Milwaukee's 97.3 The Game WRNW.
Additional stations that will become a part of the radio network in 2022 include WRJN 1400 AM covering the Racine and Kenosha markets, WYDR 94.3 FM in Neenah-Menasha covering the Fox Valley market, WCCN 107.5 FM in Neillsville and WCMP 1350 AM in Pine City, Minnesota.
As the Packers have produced the gameday radio broadcasts and managed the Packers Radio Network in-house since 2018, fans will not notice any changes to the game broadcasts themselves, with Wayne Larrivee and Larry McCarren remaining on the call for their 24th season of broadcasts together.
The flagship transition to 97.3 The Game WRNW expands on the existing relationship between the Packers and iHeartMedia as the station joins iHeartRadio affiliate partners in Madison (WIBA AM and WIBA FM), Eau Claire (WBIZ) and Moline, Illinois (WFXN Fox Sports).
97.3 The Game WRNW and iHeartMedia Milwaukee offers an attractive demographic opportunity to reach new listeners with its growing sports talk radio format and other programming formats in the Milwaukee area. Additionally, the partnership offers a variety of new platforms that will support key Packers initiatives, including iHeartMedia's new audio partnership with the NFL which features podcast distribution.
Fans can find their home affiliate station and see the full list of Packers Radio Network stations at packers.com/video/radio-network. Any forthcoming changes to the network will be updated on packers.com prior to the preseason.
