    Helmet Urban One Acquires The Team 980

    Press Release
    5/21/2018


    ROCKVILLE, Md. (May 21, 2018) – Urban One, Red Zebra Broadcasting and the Washington Redskins announced today that Urban One has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the assets of the radio station The Team 980 (WTEM 980 AM) from Red Zebra Broadcasting, pending FCC approval. In addition, Urban One has also entered into an agreement with the Washington Redskins to ensure that all Redskins games, as well as pregame and postgame programming, will remain on The Team 980

    The acquisition is the first step in a collaborative effort between the Redskins and Urban One to keep The Team 980 as the fans’ premier source for radio coverage of the Washington Redskins.

    “We believe the future of The Team 980 is in great hands with Urban One,” said Terry Bateman, Chairman of Red Zebra Broadcasting. “We view this as an opportunity for Urban One and the Redskins to build a close partnership to continue to provide the Redskins’ fans with unparalleled access and content, keeping The Team 980 as the fans’ destination for the best Redskins coverage.”

    In addition to The Team 980, the Redskins game day broadcasts – including pregame, in-game and postgame programming – will air on WMAL 105.9 FM and 630 AM as a valued part of the Redskins Radio Network.

    “This is a tremendous opportunity for Urban One and we are especially pleased that through our acquisition, The Team 980 will continue to be locally owned. The acquisition of The Team 980 is very much in line with our strategy of super-serving our community of listeners. We have deep roots in the greater Washington, DC area and are well aware that The Team 980 has always been a fan favorite,” said Alfred C. Liggins, President and CEO of Urban One. “Red Zebra has a track record of producing great programming that engages our hometown sports fans. We look forward to working with the Washington Redskins organization to continue this tradition.”
