Reports: Dallas Mavericks To Move To KEGL

Multiple reports indicate that the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks will depart ESPN Inc.’s “ESPN 103.3” KESN Allen/Dallas TX after twenty seasons to move their game broadcasts to iHeartMedia Rock/Hot Talk “97.1 The Eagle” KEGL for the upcoming season.

The Dallas Morning News reports that the move will be announced in the coming days, with Sports Illustrated adding that while the Mavericks current contract with ESPN ran through 2023, owner Mark Cuban exercised an out clause in the contract triggered by the end of the LMA of KESN by Cumulus Media in October 2020 leading to the end of all local programming on the stations outside of the Mavericks broadcasts.
