Buffalo Bills Radio Network

Its primary programming is broadcasts of Bills home and away games to a network of approximately 20 stations in upstate New York, northwestern Pennsylvania and Toronto.

John Murphy, sports anchor at WIVB-TV in Buffalo, is the current play-by-play announcer, with former Bills safety Mark Kelso as color commentator and Joe Buscaglia as sideline reporter.

The network is an autonomous organization from the team, and is unique in that it, and not the team itself, is the main sponsor of the Bills' cheerleaders, the Buffalo Jills.

Van Miller was the voice of the Buffalo Bills for its entire history until 2003, with the exception of seven years in the 1970s when WKBW controlled radio rights and Miller's TV employer, WBEN-TV, would not permit him to appear on WKBW broadcasts. He was succeeded by Murphy, his former color commentator, when he retired from the booth after the 2003 season.
