April 17, 2013 at 4:00 AM (PT)
For the third straight season, BURLINGTON COUNTY COLLEGE Top 40/Rhythmic WBZC (Z88.9) will be the official radio station for the CAMDEN RIVERSHARKS minor league baseball team. WBZC will broadcast all 70 home games, beginning with the home-opener on TUESDAY, APRIL 23rd vs the BRIDGEPORT BLUEFISH.
BCC students will have the opportunity to get hands-on experience producing, promoting, and organizing a professional sports team broadcast. PHILADELPHIA FLYERS radio broadcaster TIM SAUNDERS will be mentoring BCC students and calling several games for the station.
“Not many students have the opportunity to work with a professional sports team or TIM SAUNDERS, one of the best play-by-play announcers out there,” WBZC OM/PD BRETT HOLCOMB said. “Our listeners enjoy the excitement of the game and our students get valuable hands-on experience. It’s a win-win.”
Games can be heard on WBZC's main signal at 88.9 in SOUTH JERSEY, as well as on translators at 95.1 in BURLINGTON, NJ and at 100.7 in LUMBERTON, NJ, and also online at www.Z889.org. SATURDAY games will be on the ZEDM web stream, which can be found under “listen live” on the station’s website.
