Davenport, IA - The Quad Cities’ AM 1230, WFXN is proud to announce that starting with the 2013-14 NFL season the station will be the exclusive Quad Cities home for Green Bay Packers football. WFXN will carry all games including home and away during the regular season, plus preseason and any postseason appearances.  

WFXN will broadcast the games on the radio on AM 1230 or online at www.wfxn.net or on iHeartRadio. “It is a thrill to bring NFL icons like the Green Bay Packers to WFXN’s listeners”, said WFXN program director, Ron Evans.  “We hope the ‘cheeseheads’ who love the Pack, and even those who don’t; will tune in for the latest and greatest from historic Lambeau Field with this year’s green and gold squad.”

The addition of Green Bay Packers football to WFXN Fox Sports 1230 means the return to Quad Cities radio for veteran play-by-play man Wayne Larrivee; who worked in the area earlier in his career at KSTT-AM in Davenport. While broadcasting in the Quad Cities Wayne called for Iowa Hawkeye football as well as local high school football and Quad City Angels baseball. Larrivee also has worked for The Chicago Bears.

The Green Bay Packers are among the most storied franchises in the National Football League, having won 13 championships—the most of any team.

AM 1230 WFXN is one of six Quad City area radio stations owned by Clear Channel Media and Entertainment.  Other stations in the local Clear Channel cluster includes, 103.7 FM WLLR, 101.3 FM KISS, 96.1 FM KMXG, 101.3 FM KCQQ, and AM 1420 WOC.  With 243 million monthly listeners in the U.S. Clear Channel Media and Entertainment has the largest reach of any radio and television outlet in America.
