The New York Jets have agreed a partnership with talkSPORT which will broadcast six 2022 Jets regular season games.
The deal sees talkSPORT become the official UK radio broadcast partner of the NBA team, and also allows fans exclusive access to the Jets Touchdown UK Podcast and additional Jets content including player and coach interviews.
“We are so thrilled to extend a radio broadcast of the Jets to our fans in the United Kingdom as we take the next step in utilising our right to expand this game with the help of the world’s biggest sports radio station,” commented New York Jets President, Hymie Elhai.
“This partnership will allow for so much more than 2022 season coverage as we continue to welcome some of the most passionate fans in the world into our fanbase.”
TalkSPORT and talkSPORT2 platforms will be available on mobile, digital radio, the talkSPORT app, and talkSPORT.com and will provide Jets content on game days and non-game days.
The platform has outlined that it plans to air game day broadcasts hosted by Jets radio play-by-play announcer, Bob Wischusen, alongside radio colour commentator and former Jets player, Marty Lyons.
TalkSPORT NFL host, Will Gavin, added: “We’re delighted to be partnering with the Jets, and expand the reach of talkSPORT’s NFL coverage. The Jets commitment to the UK, and the quality of their content that we’ll be able to share with NFL UK fans is fantastic.
“On the field they have already delivered one of the best games of the 2022 season, following Zach Wilson’s return is bound to deliver some great stories, and in terms of opponents – divisional games vs the AFC East, plus the Packers, Steelers & Bills – it’s a brilliant package for us to be able to deliver!”
The team continues to further its relationships within the UK market since being awarded marketing rights to the country in 2022, following the announcement of the NFL’s International Home Marketing Area initiative.
