If you find yourself somewhere where watching a 49ers game is impossible, the radio is always a solid alternative.

There's a chance you'll find yourself driving on the road during one or more of the San Francisco 49ers' upcoming games for the 2023 season.

Whether you're on the road, don't have a television nearby or can't stream San Francisco's games on your preferred devices, tuning into the 49ers' own radio broadcasts can be an excellent alternative so that you won't miss any of the action.
