Asix-pack of Dolphins nuggets:

Look for the Dolphins next week to unveil their latest big off-field change. The team will announce it is moving its games from WQAM 560 to two Clear Channel stations for the next six seasons -- WINZ 940 and WBGG-FM 105.9.

The Dolphins opted out of their deal with WQAM that would have paid them $3 million in 2010. Instead, the Dolphins will not get a rights fee but will keep ad revenue.

The Dolphins see positives for fans: WINZ will launch a 5-7 p.m. weekday Dolphins show, ideally by April, that's longer and at a better time than WQAM's 7-8 p.m. weeknight show; and the games will now be simulcast on FM, and ``FM quality sound is better,'' Dolphins CEO Mike Dee said. ``We like having an AM and FM'' carrier. The Dolphins will get a larger promotional platform across Clear Channel's seven South Florida stations, including regular segments in the morning (WIOD) and midafternoon (WINZ).

Dee said the team likes announcers Jimmy Cefalo, Joe Rose and Jim Mandich but has not decided who will call the games. Cefalo works for Clear Channel as a morning host on WIOD. WQAM general manager Joe Bell said the Dolphins asked him about Rose's and Mandich's availability, and Bell will allow them to do their WQAM talk shows and call the Dolphins games on Clear Channel. Mandich, who always intended to give up his talk show after 2010, is dealing with a serious medical issue and it's undetermined when or if he will decide to return to the air. ... -winz.html

Here we go again. Didnt this happen a few years ago when the Dolphins moved to 790 & then back to 560 once again. I remember Rose went with the broadcast team to 790 where he got his morning show as well & bashed the hell out of 560 only to eat crow (I guess) & come back when the team went back to 560. Going to 940 is a bit of a surprise although I know they have Jim Rome on in the afternoons. They actually did broadcast on a FM station a few years ago (maybe it was 105.9 or 102.7) so having the games on FM is much better especially in the car but honestly I have listened to nothing but sirius satellite for almost 5 years now.
BTW - what is going on with Mandich?

105.9 is much better to listen to games on...

However with Sirius, I rarely even tune in FM anymore.. When I do its to listen to 560 sports radio. I like all the guys there with the exception of Sid Rose, and he is a good broadcaster, just too much of a NY'r for my taste.... He is one of those "everything NY is better" and of coarse lives in S. FL....


As long as Jimmy & Mad Dog keep doing the dolphin radio broadcast, I could care less from where they are transmitted... FM is much easier on the ears tho...
