Braves, Dickey Broadcasting Company renew radio rightsholder partnership for 10 years

Dickey Broadcasting Company to also relocate offices and studios to The Battery Atlanta

Nov. 4, 2016

ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves and Dickey Broadcasting Company have announced an unprecedented 10-year extension for Dickey Broadcasting Company to remain the exclusive radio rightsholder for Braves baseball through 2026. In addition, Dickey Broadcasting will also move its studios and offices to The Battery Atlanta, leasing loft office space on the fourth floor, overlooking the plaza and next to the Coca-Cola Roxy Theater in the new mixed-use development adjacent to SunTrust Park.

Dickey Broadcasting Company, which became the Braves exclusive radio rightsholder in 2010, will carry all 162 regular season games on its two Atlanta flagship radio stations, 680-AM and 93.7-FM. They will also continue to manage the expanding Braves Radio Network -- the largest sports radio network in the U.S., covering well over 100 radio stations throughout the Southeast.

"Our relationship with Dickey Broadcasting Company is an extremely important part of our team, and they are the best in the business," said Derek Schiller, Braves president, business. "This agreement ensures our fans throughout the South -- and beyond -- will be able to follow Braves baseball wherever they go and know they are receiving the highest quality radio broadcasts anywhere in professional sports. We are also proud to have their team of professionals relocating next to SunTrust Park, which further showcases the success of The Battery Atlanta."

In addition to its new offices, Dickey Broadcasting will have a significant presence at The Battery Atlanta on game days, with "680 The Fan's Game Day" pregame show and "Atlanta Braves Wrap-Up" postgame show broadcast live adjacent to the Terrapin Taproom.

"This extension represents a new era for our relationship with one of the most storied franchises in professional sports," said David Dickey, president of Dickey Broadcasting Company. "We've long been proud partners of the Atlanta Braves, and now we're excited that we can call them our neighbors at The Battery Atlanta. From expanded coverage opportunities to exclusive programming, we'll be able to share the best stories from the team to all of Braves Country."
