Veteran Broadcaster Gene Deckerhoff Returns to Bucs for 36th Season

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers today announced the broadcast crews for their radio and preseason television broadcasts.

The legendary voice of the Buccaneers and award-winning play-by-play announcer and Jacksonville native, Gene Deckerhoff, returns for his 36th season alongside former Bucs tight end Dave Moore, who enters his 19th season providing game analysis. T.J. Rives will provide live in-game updates and interviews from the sidelines for the 20th consecutive season. Games will once again be broadcast on the Buccaneers’ flagship radio station, iHeart Media’s 98ROCK 97.9 FM.


The Buccaneers also have agreed to a multi-year extension with NIA Broadcasting to provide a Spanish-language alternate broadcast of every Buccaneers game on WTMP 96.1 FM-HD-1 with Carlos Bohórquez, Martín Gramática, and Santiago Gramática returning for their seventh year together.


“Our local broadcast stations play a huge part in what we do all year round, and an even more important role when it comes to delivering the game live to our Krewe. Whether you’re listening from the car or at home with your family, fans have access to tune into any Buccaneers game, home or away to hear live game analysis,” said Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford. “Buccaneers Radio Network has worked hard to strengthen our partnership with NIA Broadcasting as we broaden our audience reach by offering Spanish-speaking fans alternative ways to listen to Buccaneers games.”

In addition to broadcasting all regular season home games, Spanish radio will simulcast with WFLA during the preseason to offer a Spanish-speaking option for local fans.

“All of us at WTMP and NIA Broadcasting are excited to continue our partnership with the Buccaneers,” said Neal Ardman, WTMP’s Chief Executive Officer. “The team is an important part of WTMP, providing fans all across Tampa Bay access to live-game Spanish audio as well as news and information about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.”

WFLA News Channel 8 will remain the preseason home of Buccaneers football in 2024 as Chris Myers, Ronde Barber, and Dan Lucas will call all three preseason games live from Cincinnati (8/10) and Jacksonville (8/17), and at home against Miami (8/23). The team’s first preseason contest vs. Cincinnati will be aired locally on WTTA-TV, an affiliate of WFLA, while the final two games will be broadcast on WFLA itself.


Buccaneers Radio Network can be heard on 98ROCK (97.9 FM) and WTMP (96.1 FM, 92.9 FM, 102.1 FM, and 1150 AM). For the most up-to-date Buccaneers information, visit
