FM, No Static at All For Your Texas Rangers
At freaking last. The Texas Rangers announced this afternoon that for the first time in the team's history, game broadcasts will be available on the FM side of your radio dial -- at least, weekday games have gone high fidelity. So says the media release announcing KRLD-FM (105.3, The Fan) as the new (part-time) home of the Rangers. You can expect about to hear Eric Nadel and newly announced play-by-playmate Dave Barnett about 110 times on The Fan -- unless, for whatever reason, the team opts to move the mound to KRLD-AM (1080), which will still carry the weekend broadcasts.
Says team president Nolan Ryan of the move, "The sound, quality and strength of The Fan's FM signal will provide a new listening experience for our fans." If nothing else, it's easier than actually winning the American League West.
