The Orioles and WBAL Radio have signed a three-year deal making WBAL the originating flagship station. The announcement was made yesterday by Orioles president and CEO Larry Lucchino and Dave Barrett, vice president and general manager of WBAL.
Simultaneously, the Orioles have signed a three-year agreement with radio station WTOP in Washington, making that station the Orioles' exclusive Washington radio affiliate. In addition, announcer Jon Miller has signed a three-year contract to remain as the Orioles' primary radio voice.
Next year, Miller will do 50 games as play-by-play announcer on Orioles telecasts for Channel 2, and he has three years left on his contract to do baseball on ESPN. How many games will that leave for him to do on radio?
"Naturally he won't be doing 162 games, but how many he'll actually do hasn't been decided yet," said Orioles spokesman Bob Miller.
