A little radio industry birdie just chirped to me that the Dallas Mavericks and 103.3 ESPN have reached an agreement keeping the team in place through 2013. The Mavs would've become radio free agents after the current deal expired on April 1, but the sides finalized a new four-year contract on Monday.
Good news for Mavs fans. The station has a good night signal and devotes plenty of time to the team as far as extensive pre- and post-game shows.
