The AHL's ROCHESTER AMERICANS will be heard on ENTERCOM Sports WROC-A-W239BF (95.7 FM/950 AM ESPN RADIO)/ROCHESTER this season. All 76 games will air on the station, with DON STEVENS back for his 31st season calling AMERKS hockey and RIC SEILING as analyst; TIM SCHNEIDER will serve as pre- and post-game host.
