Broadcast outletsEdit

When the Nationals arrived in Washington, D. C., the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network (MASN) acquired the television rights for almost all Nationals games. However, MASN was not available to most people in the Nationals broadcast area for nearly all of the first two seasons of play. Some of the games were also televised on WDCA, mostly on weekends.

While MASN continued to televise nearly every Nationals game, the number of WDCA telecasts decreased to approximately 30 in 2006, mostly on Friday nights. By 2007, the number of over-the-air games was down to approximately 20. MASN's broadcast partner switched from WDCA to WDCW from 2009 to 2012. In 2013, WUSA became MASN's over-the-air broadcast partner for 20 Nationals games a year–all weekend games except for Opening Day. In 2018, over-the-air broadcasts ended, and all games now air exclusively on MASN unless picked up for national broadcast.

Broadcast outletsEdit

Since the 2011 season, the Nationals' flagship radio station has been WJFK-FM, "106.7 The Fan", which is owned and operated by Entercom after Entercom's purchase of CBS Radio. Most games also are simulcast on WFED, "Federal News Radio," at 1500 and 820 AM, which is owned by Hubbard Broadcasting after its purchase of the station from Bonneville International and was the flagship station of the Nationals from the first season in Washington (2005) through the 2010 season. Whenever WFED cannot air a game due to a conflict, that game airs on WJFK's sister station WJFK (1580 AM, "CBS Sports Radio 1580").
