Entercom Communications, a U.S. sports radio ownership group, and FanDuel announced on Thursday a six-year partnership designating FanDuel as its official sportsbook partner.

FanDuel will be the official sportsbook across Entercom sports broadcast stations and RADIO.COM, a digital audio platform, according to a news release. Entercom owns and operates 39 all-sports stations across the U.S., including WFAN 101.9 FM/660 AM (WFAN-FM/AM) in New York, SportsRadio 94WIP (WIP-FM) in Philadelphia and 670 The Score (WSCR-AM) in Chicago.

The partnership brings FanDuel’s sports betting content, products and risk/trading expertise to Entercom sports fans through integration across its sports audio platforms.

Under the agreement, FanDuel receives preferred and increased category access to all Entercom talent in every market where Entercom and FanDuel both operate.

“Entercom has revolutionized the audio and entertainment industries and we’re beyond excited to be their preferred partner in the sports betting and fantasy categories," Matthew King, CEO of FanDuel, said in a news release. “In the two years we have been doing business with Entercom, it is abundantly clear to us that their authentic connection to sports fans is one of the best ways for us to engage FanDuel customers.

”We will work together to offer sports fans access to information wherever, whenever, and however they consume content, providing them with the tools to learn and win.”

FanDuel has been busy this week, announcing it was opening a sportsbook at Bally’s in Atlantic City and launching in the Tennessee sports betting market on Sunday. It also received a license in Illinois Thursday to partner with Fairmount Park Racetrack on sports betting.

As part of the deal, Entercom listeners will have access to FanDuel odds, insight and promotions, the release said. They will also collaborate on in-depth integrations and co-produce content that will provide all-new formats for the industry.
