NHL: CBS Miami Radio Station to Broadcast All Panthers Games

The Florida Panthers announced today that they have reached a multi-year contract extension with CBS RADIO’s 560 WQAM to continue to broadcast all Panthers regular season and playoffs games.

Play-by-play announcer Doug Plagens and analyst Bill Lindsay will return to call all the action for the team’s flagship radio partner.

“Sports Radio 560 WQAM and CBS RADIO Miami have been excellent partners,” Panthers Executive Chairman Peter Luukko said. “We are glad that we could expand our relationship beyond game action to even more exclusive interviews throughout the week with coaches, players and front office staff as well as more digital content coverage. CBS RADIO Miami has already been a strong supporter of Panthers hockey and we look forward to continuing to build on our mutually beneficial partnership.”
