TOWNSQUARE MEDIA Classic Country KBOB-A/DAVENPORT, IA will air QUAD CITIES RIVER BANDITS minor league baseball this season. RIVER BANDITS Broadcaster and Director of Media Relations MARCO LANAVE will call the action for his fourth season with the club.
Team owner DAVE HELLER said, "We are delighted to work with our great partners at TOWNSQUARE MEDIA QUAD CITIES to broadcast all of the exciting action of RIVER BANDITS baseball on one of the QUAD CITIES' most popular country stations. Radio remains an effective and beloved medium, and at a time when other teams are discontinuing radio, we are really happy to be ramping it up. The QUAD CITIES loves country music, and they love their Bandits, so our new partnership with K-BOB REAL COUNTRY and TOWNSQUARE is a perfect match!"
RIVER BANDITS GM ANDREW CHESSER said, "As an organization, our goal is to grow the connection of our fans to our players, and TOWNSQUARE continues to be a critical partner in doing so with enjoyable, high-quality broadcasts. This new broadcast partnership with TOWNSQUARE will bring the media experience of RIVER BANDITS baseball to its highest level ever."
LANAVE added, "I have been blessed to be part of many memorable moments and historic achievements in the QUAD CITIES; having the RIVER BANDITS broadcast all of their games, not merely on the radio, but on the most-listened-to station in RIVER BANDITS history, is among the most exciting for me. Broadcasting sports with TOWNSQUARE has been a highlight of my broadcasting career, and I am thrilled that will continue with RIVER BANDITS games this spring."
