WSOU To Broadcast Brooklyn Cyclones Baseball

SETON HALL UNIVERSITY Active Rock WSOU/ SOUTH ORANGE, NJ will become the flagship station for the NEW YORK METS Single-A affiliate The BROOKLYN CYCLONES for game broadcasts during the 2012 season. WSOU will air Opening Day and all 38 CYCLONES road games over the airwaves while streaming the entire 76-game season (and any playoff games) at BrooklynCyclones.com.
"We are thrilled to be able to offer our fans a more traditional radio experience this season," CYCLONES GM STEVE COHEN said. "In the past, our radio broadcasts were not as readily available to our fan base. Through this new opportunity with WSOU, fans will have access to CYCLONES baseball like never before.
"With the unexpected passing of [play-by-play announcer] WARNER FUSSELLE earlier this week, we knew that there would be a hole in our broadcast that no individual could fill," Cohen continued. "But based on WARNER’s history as the play-by-play announcer for SETON HALL Basketball, and his affinity for helping up-and-coming broadcasters get started in the business, we thought this was a perfect match. Plus, we all know that WARNER was doing the work of at least three men during his years as the voice of the CYCLONES."
"We are excited to be partnering with the BROOKLYN CYCLONES for their 2012 season," WSOU GM MARK MABEN said. "It fits perfectly with our mission to both serve the local community and create experiential-learning opportunities for SETON HALL students.
