Don't believe so.

The Wild deal is for three years beginning next season. While the club controls the broadcast and hires the talent, Clear Channel operations manager Gregg Swedberg says, "We would never even think of changing the announcing team. We love Bob Kurtz and Tom Reid."

The Wild got a bigger rating on WCCO than the Wolves did on KFAN, though neither team got much above a 1 percent share of the nighttime audience. It will be interesting to see if the team or station matters more to next year's number.
