Tampa Bay Rays Radio Network

The Tampa Bay Rays Radio Network is a 21-station radio network (19 A.M, 2 F.M. plus 2 F.M. translators) in the southeastern United States and Pennsylvania that broadcasts baseball games and related programming for the Tampa Bay Rays of Major League Baseball. Additionally, there is a 2-station Spanish language network which brings the number of radio stations carrying the Tampa Bay Rays to 23. Since 2009, WDAE/620 in St. Petersburg, Florida, has served as the flagship station for the network. [1]

In addition, WGES/680 in St. Petersburg, Florida airs games in Spanish but is not part of the network.[2]
