The Miami Heat announced Monday a new five-year agreement that extends their broadcasting partnership with 790 The Ticket through 2021.

790 has been broadcasting Heat games since the 2010-11 season and announcers Mike Inglis and John Crotty will continue to call the games. Tommy Tighe will provide the pre-game, halftime and post-game reporting while Jonathan Zaslow, host of the popular Ticket morning show, will continue as host of The Ticket pre-game and post-game show, according to a team press release.

"We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Miami Heat and giving our listeners exclusive game-day programming, unique insights and access to the team they know and love," says Doug Abernethy, Entercom Miami's Vice President and General Manager. "This partnership exemplifies our dedication to providing world class coverage of Miami sports."

The Ticket will also continue its exclusive specialty programming during the HEAT season. "15 Minutes of HEAT," a snapshot of daily HEAT news, will air at 6:20 am, 8:20 am, 2:20 pm and 5:20 pm, Monday through Friday. "Dos Minutos," a two-minute recap on past and current HEAT games will be hosted by Zaslow at 2:55 pm on weekdays. "HEAT Weekly" will remain in its usual spot and will be hosted by Tighe at 10 am on Saturday mornings beginning in October.

"790 The Ticket has been the home for some of the most exciting and memorable moments in Heat history," said Eric Woolworth, President of the HEAT Group Business Operations.

"This new agreement will ensure that Heat fans will continue to tune their dial to 790 The Ticket to get all of the news, information and exciting live game action surrounding their Miami Heat."
