"Max Media and ESPN Radio 94.1 have been outstanding partners during our longstanding relationship" said Tides General Manager Joe Gregory. "Fans across the region know that they can always find Tides baseball on ESPN Radio 94.1, and we're excited to continue this successful partnership for years to come."

"We thank Dave Rosenfield and Joe Gregory for their passion for baseball in our area and we're thrilled to announce the continuation of this long relationship between the Tides and ESPN Radio 94.1."
