SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Padres and XX Sports Radio agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension that will keep the Padres English-language radio broadcasts on AM 1090 and FM 105.7 through the 2011 season. Padres chief executive officer Sandy Alderson and Broadcast Company of the Americas president and chief executive officer John Lynch made the announcement on XX's "Too Much Show" just after 5:00 p.m. PST on Wednesday.

"XX Sports Radio has been an outstanding partner," commented Alderson. "We are thrilled to both continue this relationship and to deliver comprehensive Padres coverage to our great fans."

"I am elated with the announcement that XX will be carrying the Padres for the next five seasons," said Lynch. "We built our radio stations around the Padres and this partnership. As the two-time defending Western Division champions, we have enjoyed the Padres' great success and are looking forward to broadcasting a San Diego world championship."

The Padres originally entered into a four-year agreement with the station, then named the Mighty 1090, beginning with the 2004 season. Combined with the existing year on the original contract, the extension means that XX will remain the Padres radio home through the 2011 baseball season.

The Padres and XX recently announced the addition of Andy Masur to the club's broadcast team. He'll join Hall of Famer Jerry Coleman and "the Voice of the Padres" Ted Leitner, who will be calling Padres action for their 35th and 28th seasons, respectively.

XX will begin airing live Padres action on Friday, March 2, with the broadcast of the Padres-Seattle Mariners Spring Training game beginning at 1:05 p.m. PST.

The station will continue to air every Padres preseason, regular-season and postseason game, as well as numerous other Padres shows year-round. XX will also continue to broadcast live from their studios at PETCO Park before each home game.
