This is a list of all broadcasters of content related to the Tennessee Titans, the National Football League franchise based in Nashville, Tennessee.

Television[edit]

Locally-produced programs[edit]

Titans All Access is the 30-minute program devoted to the Titans providing behind-the-scenes footage of the games, and a preview of their next matchup. It initially airs on weekends during football season on Fox affiliate WZTV, with MyNetworkTV affiliate WUXP and CW affiliate WNAB providing replays.

In addition, WKRN, Nashville’s ABC affiliate, airs another locally-produced sports show, Titans on 2, which is a weekly show that provides the coach an opportunity to talk about the team's latest match-up and looks forward to the upcoming match-up. The show also features a different Titans player every week.

Game coverage on television[edit]

  • Since the start of the 1998 NFL Season, the CBS Television Network is in charge of the AFC road games and most all-AFC games on Sunday afternoons. Therefore, in Nashville, WTVF is considered to be the main television station for the Titans.
  • Anytime the Titans play host to an NFC team at Nissan Stadium, the team’s home venue, the game(s) are aired on Fox, including Nashville’s local Fox affiliate WZTV.
  • During the preseason, which is typically played in August and early September, WKRN broadcasts most of the team’s preseason games and syndicates them to station in a few nearby markets. WKRN is the sole local broadcaster to simulcast the team’s appearances on ESPN’s Monday Night Football.
  • In the event of a Sunday night game assigned to the Titans regular season schedule, NBC provides nationwide coverage for the NBC Sunday Night Football games, including WSMV, although the Titans only had one appearance in that time slot.
  • Starting in 2014, CBS began simulcasting the NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football games for weeks 2-9 of the regular season. Therefore, if the Titans appear in any Thursday Night Football games within those eight weeks of the season, the game will not only be on the NFL Network, but it’ll also be seen nationally on CBS, regardless of market area. Until 2014, any of the team’s appearances on TNF not simulcast on CBS are locally simulcast on Fox affiliate WZTV. In 2016, the TNF simulcast deal has extended to include NBC for weeks 11-16, with CBS remaining to simulcast TNF for weeks 2-6.
  • Additionally, in Canada, all of the Titans appearances on Monday Night Football are simulcast nationwide on ESPN’s Canadian sister cable channel, TSN and its French language counterpart, RDS, Réseau des sports. Sometimes, when the Titans are to appear in a Sunday afternoon game against any NFL team based along the Canadian border (i.e. Seattle Seahawks, Detroit Lions, Buffalo Bills), the CTV Television Network may pick up Canadian broadcast rights to those games. All Canadian NFL broadcasts are subject to Simultaneous substitution.

Past television coverage[edit]

From 1990 until 1994, and in 1997, still under the Oilers name, Raycom Sports had broadcast rights to preseason games. WKRN, WMC-TV/Memphis, and WVLT/Knoxville, were the three stations that ran those broadcasts in the 1997 preseason. [1]

Radio[edit]

The Titans' flagship radio station is WGFX 104.5 FM. Mike Keith is the team's play-by-play announcer, having taken over those duties starting with the team's inaugural season as the Tennessee Titans in 1999. He served as the color commentator in 1998, the team's final year as the Tennessee Oilers. Former Titans tight end Frank Wycheck is the current color commentator. He replaced Pat Ryan starting with the 2005 NFL season. Larry Stone is the Titans Radio gameday host. The Titans Radio Network is broadcast on some 70 other stations.[2]

Until 2011, the team long resisted placing any of its game broadcasts on Sirius XM Radio, the only team to do so. [3] [4] [5] However, Titans broadcasts are available on the Internet-based FieldPass.
