The Lansing Lugnuts, Class A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays, and Townsquare Media have announced an exclusive partnership, with WVFN-AM (The Game 730 AM) serving as the new flagship home for Lugnuts baseball.
“We are excited to bring Lugnuts baseball to our listeners,” said Zoe Burdine-Fly, Townsquare Media Regional Vice President – Michigan. “This is a collaboration between two companies that are committed to serving the Lansing community, both now and for many years to come.”
“Baseball provides the soundtrack of summer,” said Lansing Lugnuts General Manager Nick Grueser. “It made only too much sense for fans to hear the crack of the bat and the roar of the crowd at Cooley Law School Stadium on Lansing’s top sports station. We are excited to partner with Zoe and such a tremendous radio family of stations in Mid Michigan.”
In addition to The Game 730 AM, the Lugnuts will also welcome in personalities throughout the season from Townsquare Media’s Classic Rock 94.9 WMMQ, 1240 WJIM-AM, 97.5 NOW FM, 99.1 WFMK, and 100.7 WITL.
Jesse Goldberg-Strassler returns for his ninth season as the Lugnuts’ lead play-by-play broadcaster, the longest tenured voice in team history. The Greenbelt, Md. native joined the Lugnuts in 2009 after previous stints with the Brockton Rox, Montgomery Biscuits and Windy City ThunderBolts. In 2013, he was voted Midwest League Broadcaster of the Year by his peers.
Outside of Lansing, fans will be able to tune in for coverage of Lugnuts baseball via the TuneIn Radio app and The Game730am.com.
