These partnerships will allow us to reach A’s fans from as far north as Butte and Mendocino Counties across the Bay Area and down to Fresno and Monterey, with both terrestrial and free streaming broadcasts,” said A’s COO Chris Giles. “We are also thrilled to launch a 24/7 A’s channel on TuneIn and deliver exclusive content and unprecedented coverage throughout the season.”

A’s Announcers Ken Korach and Ray Fosse are expected to return for this coming season and beyond. “They do an incredible job,” Team President Dave Kavel said. “They’re going to be with us this year and beyond. There is not going to be a change in that area.”
