The Launch of 105.7 HD-2 FM
Today, you can listen to our CBS Sports 920-AM programming on FM by tuning into 105.7 HD-2 FM.
Over the last 10 days, we’ve been testing out the simulcast of our programming on 105.7 HD-2 FM, and it would be an understatement to downplay the difference that the FM signal makes in the listening experience.
Now, I realize not everyone has HD radio in their car, but I also know that many people have HD radio, and don’t even realize it.
So, for those of you who have a car made within the last few years, check to see if you have HD radio.
In my case, I didn’t even realize I had it in my car until I was searching for a station, got to it, and realized I was on the station’s HD-2 station. Once you find out if you do have HD, just preset 105.7 HD-2 FM, and you’re good to go. That’s how I listen to the station now. Frank Cusumano sent me this text he received from a friend: The sound quality is stunning. It makes me want to drive around all day and listen to your station.
If you don’t have HD radio in your car, you can get an HD radio tuner on Amazon.com for $59.99.
Here’s a link to one of many options.
If you would like to listen to the station on HD radio at home or at work, you can purchase a table-top HD radio for $59.99 on Amazon: ̈
Now, just like has always been the case since the station began on August 1st, 2013, you can listen on CBS Sports 920-AM, by streaming it on The Gateway Buick GMC Live Stream on insideSTL.com, or by listening on our new mobile app. Just download the new app in the app store, and you’ll find it to be a great improvement over our first app. If you haven’t downloaded the app over the last month, make sure to do so and to get the updates as our partners at St. Louis Computer Services have been fixing the bugs since we debuted it.
Bottom line: our goal is to make our content as easily accessible as possible, and with our new partnership with Emmis Communications and 105.7 HD-2 FM, today we have added another way for you to listen to our shows.
We also are fired up about the debut of our newest show, The Writers’ Block, featuring Post-Dispatch columnists Benjamin Hochman and Ben Frederickson and Cardinal beat writer Derrick Goold. The Writers’ Block follows The Ryan Kelley Morning After and The Hollywood Casino Press Box with Frank Cusumano and airs from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. on CBS Sports 920-AM and 105.7 HD-2 FM.
Thank you for your continued support of our stations, our programming, and our sponsors.
