WBBM Newsradio 780-AM and 105.9-FM will retain Chicago Bears exclusive radio broadcast rights under a new “multi-year” agreement, CBS Radio Chicago and the Bears organization announced Wednesday.

“We are happy to continue our outstanding partnership with WBBM Newsradio 780 and 105.9 FM and excited to create new opportunities with the other stations in the CBS Radio Chicago family,” Bears President and CEO Ted Phillips said in a written statement. “We want to continue to add unique content offerings for our diverse fan base, and CBS Radio Chicago provides an excellent fit to help us achieve this goal.”

Under the terms of the deal, Bears coverage will be extended across CBS Radio’s five other Chicago stations: 670 The Score, B96, 104.3 K-Hits, US 99.5 and 93 XRT. WBBM has been the radio home of the Bears since 2000.
