MINNEAPOLIS The Minnesota Twins are moving to the FM dial.
The team announced Wednesday that the radio broadcasts for Twins games will be on KTWN (96.3 FM) beginning in 2013. The announcement was made at Target Field during a live broadcast on KTWN with host Eric Perkins and special co-host and former Twins first baseman Kent Hrbek. The KTWN station is owned by the Pohlad family, which also owns the Twins.
Twins games had been broadcast on AM-1500 since 2007, when the team left WCCO (830 AM) for the first time since the Twins came to Minnesota in 1961. The radio broadcast also recently introduced a new play-by-play voice, as Cory Provus took over for John Gordon, who retired after the 2011 season.
