Packers Radio Network

The Packers Radio Network is a broadcast radio network and the official radio broadcaster of the Green Bay Packers football team. The network’s flagship is Journal Communications’ WTMJ (AM) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, which has broadcast the games since November 24, 1929. This is one of the few arrangements where a team’s flagship radio station is not based in their home market and the local station serves as a network affiliate only; the rights for Packers games in the Green Bay area have bounced between Midwest Communications and Cumulus Media throughout the last few years.

Its primary programming consists of broadcasts of Packer home and away games to a network of 56 stations in Wisconsin, the U.P., Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota. Wayne Larrivee has been the play-by-play announcer since 1999, while former Packer center Larry McCarren has worked as the color commentator since 1995.

In 2012 retired Green Bay Packers offensive tackle Mark Tauscher will provide analysis for the Packers Radio Network and the new Packers TV Network this season, according to broadcast industry news site allaccess.com. Tauscher will appear on the radio network’s pre- and post-game shows and on the Packers TV Network for pre-game analysis.

Though its broadcasts began in 1929, WTMJ did not begin paying the Packers for broadcast rights until 1943; it paid the team $7500 to broadcast the season. In the early 1930s, there was no exclusive right given to broadcast games, and WHBY in Green Bay often sent its own announcers to call the game. From 1933 to 1936, three additional stations carried WTMJ’s radio broadcasts of Packer games: WLBL in Stevens Point, WTAQ in Green Bay and WKBH in La Crosse. WSAU in Wausau and WJMS in Ironwood, Michigan started carrying the feed in 1937.
