Flyers Game Tuesday Will Be First Sporting Event To Air On WMMR
January 21, 2013 at 11:57 AM (PT)
With the launch of the lockout-delayed NHL season, the PHILADELPHIA FLYERS have begun to air on GREATER MEDIA Sports WPEN-F (97.5 THE FANATIC)/PHILADELPHIA, but as announced when the contract was signed, 13 games bumped from THE FANATIC due to scheduling conflicts with PHILADELPHIA 76ers basketball will air on sister Rock WMMR, and TOMORROW's game in NEWARK against the NEW JERSEY DEVILS represents the first time in WMMR's history that it will air a live sports event.
WMMR PD BILL WESTON said, "TUESDAY will be a historic day in the nearly 45 years WMMR has been PHILLY’s Rock station. We think partnering with the FLYERS is just one more component of 'everything that rocks."
Games to air on WMMR after TUESDAY's debut include this coming SATURDAY's game at FLORIDA, then FEBRUARY 1st at WASHINGTON, FEBRUARY 11th at TORONTO, FEBRUARY 20th in PITTSBURGH, MARCH 5th at the NEW YORK RANGERS, MARCH 10th's home game against BUFFALO, MARCH 13th at NEW JERSEY, MARCH 18th at TAMPA BAY, MARCH 24th in PITTSBURGH, APRIL 3rd at home against MONTREAL, APRIL 9th at the NEW YORK ISLANDERS, and APRIL 15th in MONTREAL.
