Lynx games on radio for first time since 2019; TV update

All 40 Lynx games this season — beginning with tonight's 9 p.m. opener at Seattle — will be available either on KFAN radio or the iHeartRadio app and the Lynx app.

All 40 games will be available on the apps, while KFAN (100.3 FM) will broadcast more than 20. Because Tuesday's opener coincides with the Wolves' playoff game at Denver, it will be available on the apps.

Wendell Epps will be the team's play-by-play announcer. It is the first time the Lynx will be heard on local radio since the 2019 season.

The arrangement is part of the deal the Timberwolves and Lynx organization's partnership with iHeartMedia Minneapolis announced in 2023.

"We are thrilled to bring back our Lynx radio broadcast and simultaneously launch our exclusive Lynx stream channel on the iHeart Media platform," Lynx CEO Ryan Tanke said in a release from the team. "We recognize we're in a pivotal movement in women's sports and hope to engage new audiences through innovative programming."

Most recently, Epps called games for the NBA G League team the Osceola (Fla.) Magic on the team's TV broadcasts. He also worked as a radio graduate associate with the NBA's Orlando Magic.

On TV, tonight's opener will be on the Bally Sports Norths Extra channel, which many potential viewers do not have access to because of the dispute between Bally and Comcast. The game will be on the WNBA League pass app and ESPN3 but will be blacked out in the Twin Cities.
