Philadelphia, Pa. - Oct. 15, 2007 - The Philadelphia 76ers announced today that the team will air 72 of its 2007-08 regular-season games on its longtime flagship station, 610 WIP, in addition to 10 contests on 1210 WPHT, due to scheduling conflicts.

"We are very pleased having long-time partners WIP and WPHT on-board again this year to broadcast our games for the upcoming season," said Lara Price, Sixers Senior Vice President of Business Operations. "These stations will give us the best opportunity to reach a large number of our fans while providing the best possible coverage of the Sixers over the airwaves."

"WIP is delighted to be the flagship station for the Philadelphia 76ers and looks forward to broadcasting the 2007-08 season," said Marc Rayfield, General Manager of WIP-AM 610. "We have a long history working with the Sixers and we look forward to providing fans with a quality broadcast of this young and exciting team."

On the radio dial, Sixers play-by-play broadcaster Tom McGinnis will return for his 13th season as the voice of the Sixers Radio Network. He will once again be joined this season by former 76ers center and current radio analyst, Todd MacCulloch.

The 76ers Radio Network consists of stations located throughout the greater Philadelphia area - including WEEX and WTKZ - and will begin airing Sixers games this pre-season, continuing with Tuesday's game at Utah (Oct. 17, 9:00 p.m.) on WIP. McGinnis and MacCulloch will tip-off the Sixers regular-season schedule again on WIP on Oct. 31 at Atlanta beginning at 7 p.m.
