Radio One Replaces 1450 WOL FM Signal with The Team 980

Jeff Wilson, Senior Regional Vice President of Radio One, announced today the addition of 95.9 FM to The Team 980 WTEM-AM. The move bolsters the reach of Washington, DC’s premiere sports station and demonstrates Radio One’s commitment to its sports programming format.

“This is big news for DMV sports fans,” stated Wilson. “We’re thrilled to bring the best sports programming to DC’s FM dial.”

Listeners can now hear The Team 980’s powerful lineup – featuring Kevin Sheehan, Steve Czaban, Super Bowl champions Doc Walker and Brian Mitchell, Al Galdi and Scott Linn – on 95.9 FM.

6am-7am The Morning Blitz with Al Galdi
7am-10am The Kevin Sheehan Show
10am-1pm Doc and Galdi
1pm-4pm B Mitch and Scott
4pm-7pm The Steve Czaban Show

The Team 980 is DC’s home for play-by-play of Washington Redskins football and 12-hours of Burgundy and Gold gameday coverage. In addition, The Team 980 is DC’s home for University of Maryland Football and Basketball and Georgetown University Basketball play-by-play.

Launching in 1992, WTEM is DC’s original sports radio station.

One of the station's most popular shows is hosted by Brian Mitchell. The all purpose running back and special teams player achieved success in the NFL while playing for the Washington football team, the Philadelphia Eagles, and the New York Giants.

With the move the AM rebroadcast of Radio One's flagship station talk station 1450 WOL on the FM dial has come to an end. This was the first station purchased by founder Cathy Hughes in 1979. The station, WOL was home to Petey Greene, the popular talk show host, comedian, and activist, whose story was portrayed in the 2007 film Talk To Me starring Don Cheadle.
