The Oakland Raiders announced today a multi-year agreement for CBS RADIO San Francisco’s LIVE 105 (105.3 KITS-FM) to broadcast play-by-play coverage of the team’s pre-season, regular season and post-season games. Listeners can hear the games on-air and in HD quality through HD Radio receivers in the Bay Area.

In addition to LIVE 105’s coverage, CBS RADIO San Francisco’s KFRC-AM 1550 will simulcast the games. The station will offer listeners a wealth of Raiders related content, including extensive pre and post game programming designed to both entertain and engage the Raider Nation.

This exclusive agreement was negotiated by Compass Media Networks, owner and syndicator of the broadcast rights for all Oakland Raiders English language broadcasts.

“The Raider Organization is delighted to announce an exciting new relationship with Compass Media Networks, pursuant to which Raider games will be broadcast in the Bay Area on KFRC 1550 AM and KITS Live 105 FM, as well as a broad affiliate network in California and beyond,” said Oakland Raiders Chief Executive Amy Trask.

    I use to listen to live 105 years ago during high school 6+ years ago when it was good, it has slowly gone down hill, and now betraying the 49ers like this makes me lose more respect. Thumbs down live 105

    1. Raiderbern says:

      But you are still listening to them? Study the history of football in the bay area before you post. Your 49ers haven’t in the playoffs either for the past 7 years. Thye last time I looked at the map, Oakland is in the Bay area, so don’t call it betrayal.

      1. Raiderbern says:

        wow, spellcheck is my friend! “haven’t been in the playoffs” and “The last time….” before you correct me, I apologize.

    2. gogil says:

      Ah, the niners are leaving the the bay area. The raiders Will be the only team in the Bay Area!

  2. NinerFan79 says:

    I totally agree with Patrick. The raiders suck and will always suck. At least when we go to a Super Bowl we win. This is a new low for you live 105.

      The Raiders were in 3 and won 2 SuperBowls before the 49ers even went to a SuperBowl. Learn your NFL history dumbass.

  3. andrea says:

    the niners suck. well… unless you enjoy drinking wine and eating cheese… at football games ;P
    lulz.

    1. raiderfan.robin says:

      I’ve been to both Raider and 49er games and the Raider fans are so friendly, always wanting to share a beer. 9er fans are stuck up and are not friendly at all.

  4. Alex says:

    I’m still hoping this was an april fools prank…

  5. Mae says:

    Meh. Live 105 killed me when they played Ricky Martin on Cinco de Mayo and now this? Not really a problem, I just never saw it coming. I still listen to Live 105 and I sadly will always be a Raider fan despite their record; however, I don’t listen on Sundays and this kind of enforces that.

  6. Los-Def says:

    RRRRAAAAIIIDDERRRRSSS!!!!

  7. BS says:

    Are you guys coming to camp then? You should really set something up at the Marriott.

  8. Nicole says:

    The Raiders and the 49ers both SUCK!!!! So get over it and move on. It’s all about the CHARGERS!!!!

  9. sharkraider says:

    Great move Live 105.
    Raiders are on the uptick…well timed.

  10. CoRey says:

    Wut do the chargers do with their empty trophy case besides collecting dust? Well thank you Live 105 for broadcast the Raiders cuz u know all the 9er fans b listening to boy george on some other station!

  11. gogil says:

    Perfect timing. The Raiders are a cheap stock now. But they are soon to be worth millions. The Raiders are making smart moves. I think Live 105 represents rock and Roll as do the Raiders. The Raiders are at least not planning to leave the bay area as the niners doing. Thanks on behalf of all Raiders fans! We need to publicity. I promise will go to the games!

  12. ralph barbieril says:

  14. CraigT says:

    The Raider’s problem is owner Al Davis. The man is a Dinosaur. He compromises everything the team tries to do

  15. Gman says:

    Give juice 2 the Raiders, cuz Al Davis never paid us.

  16. mainevent says:
