Braves Radio Network and Brewer Media have announced that ESPN 105.1 The Zone is now the home of the Atlanta Braves Radio Network in Chattanooga. Chattanooga's only fulltime sports station has agreed to a multi-year deal to carry the Braves. The Braves Radio Network is the largest in Major League Baseball, with 140 affiliates in 8 states.
Wells Guthrie, ESPN 105.1 The Zone program director said "The Atlanta Braves are a huge addition for us. The Braves have a storied history, and the Braves new home, SunTrust Park in Cobb Country brings the action even closer to Chattanooga."
ESPN 105.1 The Zone will carry all Braves games, along with daily updates and specialty programming.
John Napolitano, director of Affiliates for the Atlanta Braves Radio Network said, "As we begin a new era of Braves baseball we look forward to a long term partnership with the Brewer Media team in Chattanooga.
