Notes[edit]

  • ¹: WJW-AM became WRMR in 1985, and was vacated for WKNR in 2001. The majority of games in the 1948 and 1949 season were covered on its FM sister station, WJW-FM, due to the AM station's programming commitments with ABC Radio. Due to this, a statewide radio network was soon established, and more FM radio sets sold in Cleveland than in any other market in the country in 1948.[7] WJW-FM became WCJW in 1965, and WQAL in 1972.
  • ²: WXEL-TV became WJW-TV in 1955, WJKW in 1977, and back to WJW in 1985.
  • ³: WGAR became WKNR in 1990; currently home to WHKW.
  • *: Select home games were only covered by WTAM from 1929 to 1931, as Tom Manning also served as a field announcer at League Park.
  • **: Jack Graney replaced Ellis Vander Pyl as play-by-play voice for WHK several games into the 1932 season.
  • ***: Four radio stations simultaneously covered the June 28, 1946 Indians game, which occurred shortly after the purchase of the team by Bill Veeck. Permanent play-by-play was established at that point, with the games going to WGAR.
  • WWWE later became WTAM, when the station returned to their original call letters in 1996 (WTAM 1923-1956; KYW 1956-1965; WKYC 1965-1972; WWWE 1972-1996; WTAM 1996–Present).
  • WERE switched frequencies with current sister station WJMO on June 3, 2007.
