Opening and Closing Bell on Wall Street
On Friday, June 29, Sports Radio 66 WFAN and CBS RADIO (NYSE: CBS) will visit the New York Stock Exchange to celebrate the station's 25th year of broadcasting. On July 1, 1987, the radio landscape changed forever and history was made as WFAN-AM signed on-air in New York City, providing Tri-state area sports fans with the first and only outlet to hear and talk about sports 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Today, WFAN is heard by over 1.5 million people each week, making it the most listened to sports radio station in America.
To celebrate this milestone, morning show team Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton, as well as night host and 25 year WFAN veteran Steve Somers, will ring The Closing BellSM.
