Raider games are broadcast in English on 16 radio stations in California, including flagship station 95.7 The Game (95.7 FM) in San Francisco. Additionally, games are broadcast on 20 radio stations in California, Nevada, Hawaii, Colorado, Arkansas, and New York. Greg Papa is the play-by-play announcer, with former Raiders coach and quarterback Tom Flores doing commentary. George Atkinson and Jim Plunkett offer pre- and post-game commentary. Compass Media Networks is responsible for producing and distributing Raiders radio broadcasts.

Until 2009, the flagship was KSFO (560 AM) in San Francisco with a network of thirty radio stations in Hawaii, Oregon, Nevada, New Mexico, and British Columbia. Papa and Flores were in the same roles as they are now; George Atkinson and Jim Plunkett handled pre- and post-game commentary.

Bill King, the Voice of the Raiders called the Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders from 1966 to 1994. He called approximately 600 games. The Raiders awarded him all three rings. King left after the 1992 season. It's Bill's radio audio heard on most of the NFL Films highlight footage of the Raiders. King's color men in Oakland included former San Francisco 49ers tight end Monty Stickles and Scotty Stirling, a sports writer for the Oakland Tribune. Many of the years, KGO 810 did promos as Raider Radio - 81. King's call of the Holy Roller has been labeled (by Chris Berman, among others) as one of 5 best in NFL history. King died in October 2005 from complications after surgery. Scotty Stirling, an Oakland Tribune sportswriter served as the "color man" with King. The Raider games were called on radio from 1960–62 by Bud (Wilson Keene) Foster and Mel Venter; from 1963–65 by Bob Blum and Dan Galvin.
