The Buffalo Bills and Entercom Communications are expected to announce that the team's radio broadcasts will return to WGR 550.
After Cumulus Media announced Monday that it was out of the bidding for the Bills' radio rights, Entercom seemed like the logical place for the games to land. Entercom owns WGR -- the all-sports station that also carries Buffalo Sabres games -- along with WBEN, KISS 98.5, Star 102.5 FM, WKBW 1520 and AM 1400.
Broadcasting sources confirmed Tuesday that WGR will carry the Bills in 2012. The announcement may come as soon as Wednesday.
WGR, under different ownership, had the Bills' radio rights in the early 1990s, then the games moved to sister station WBEN from 1993-97.
Cumulus owns 103.3 The Edge and 97 Rock, both of which carried the Bills' games from 1998 through this past season. Cumulus also owns WHTT 104.1 and WHLD 1270.
A call to Entercom Communications' management offices was not returned Tuesday evening.

Bills GM Buddy Nix spoke briefly on Monday advising the WNY media that he’ll be commenting on anything and everything in a week. He’s reserving comment now because he has a lot of people he needs to meet with and speak to over the next week. Here’s how his schedule lays out.

I posted these predictions on 9/10/11. What kind of fortune teller am I? Am I Whoopi Goldberg from Ghost or the chick who told Pee Wee Herman his bike was in the Alamo basement?

Stevie Johnson is a talented player but doesn’t seem to understand there is no “I” in Happy New Year.
Buffalo Bills receiver STEVIE JOHNSON just doesn’t get it. Somebody needs to tell this guy that carrying on in the end zone after a score like its your first time there just isn’t funny…and no one’s laughing. Especially when your team is 6-10. That somebody finally...
