As of 2013, The Browns flagship radio stations are WKNR AM 850, WKRK-FM 92.3, and WNCX FM 98.5. Games are covered on-site by by play-by-play announcer Jim Donovan and color commentator Doug Dieken, a former Browns offensive tackle.[1]

Since 2006, preseason telecasts have aired on WKYC channel 3, with Jim Donovan and former Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar in the booth, and WKYC weekend sports anchor Dave Chudowski as sideline reporter. When Donovan does TV, Michael Reghi does the radio play-by-play.

SportsTime Ohio is the official cable home of the team, replaying the preseason games that air on channel 3, and airing numerous weekly Browns related programs.
