MINNEAPOLIS - November 12, 2014 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Buffalo Wild Wings® (NASDAQ: BWLD) today announced that it has launched iHeartRadio's first branded radio station, 'B-Dubs Radio powered by Wings, Beer and Sports.'

"We wanted to create our own unique ongoing radio platform that incorporates two of our Guests' key passions - sports and music," said Bob Ruhland, vice president of marketing, Buffalo Wild Wings. "It's another great way for us to engage our Guests outside of our restaurants, while also letting them know about specials and activities they'll find when they come in for the next big game."
Owned by iHeartMedia, iHeartRadio is a free, all-in-one digital radio and music streaming service that recommends music and aggregates radio content across more than 1,000 stations, and allows users to create personalized custom stations and like/dislike songs. Listeners can log in online, on mobile and tablets, in their cars, and on connected devices including TV's and gaming consoles.
B-Dubs Radio joins Buffalo Wild Wings' suite of in-restaurant and outside entertainment platforms such as B-Dubs TV and tableside tablets that help create the ultimate social experience for Guests. The company recently launched GameBreakTM, a single sign-on, multi-platform gaming experience allowing consumers to play a wide range of fantasy-style and competitive sports games in restaurant (via tablet), online and on a mobile app for Android and iOS devices.
