    Vikings stay on KFAN!

    Vikings Retain Current Radio Deal

    Viking Update Staff - Scout.com

    Even though Red McCombs is heading out the door, it looks like he's doing his other businesses a solid on the way out.

    Whether or not Reggie Fowler ends up with the Vikings or not may still be up in the air, but the one near-certainty is that by next season, Red McCombs will surely be gone.

    But, he is still running the day-to-day operations of the team and, to that end, did his own business interests a solid Thursday. McCombs, a major stockholder in Clear Channel Communications, which owns KFAN Radio of Minneapolis, approved a five-year contract extension to keep the station as the Vikings flagship.

    Word from Winter Park is that the Vikings are happy with the current arrangement, when KFAN took the Vikings away from longtime home WCCO-AM. While no decisions have been finalized, VU has been told that the play-by-play contract of Paul Allen and Joe Senser will also be picked up.

    I think this is great, I love listening to Paul Allen when the Vikings are playing on the road. So what if Red owns part of clear channel, I think KFAN is better than wcco

    Red's just covering his bases to make sure he continues to make money off the Vikes, even after he sells. Shrewd.

    At first I didn't like Paul Allen on play-by-play, but I think he's grown into the part, and now I enjoy him.

    And yet i hear a lot of people dont want him at the play by play announcer. :scratch: A bunch of people think hes not that great of an announcer. Im guessing because of the way he can get over ridculously excited and sound stupid when we make a huge play and the fact that he cant keep up with the plays at times.

    I know this has been asked before, but is there any way that I can listen to the game on my PC (KFAN) and watch it on TV? With the NFL Sunday Ticket for DTV, will there be a delay so the words will not reflect real-time play-by-play? Thanks!
