JOURNAL Talk WTMJ-A/MILWAUKEE has inked a new agreement to continue as flagship station for MILWAUKEE BREWERS baseball. WTMJ has been the team's flagship for all but two seasons since the BREWERS moved to MILWAUKEE from SEATTLE just days before the start of the 1970 regular season. BOB UECKER has been the team's radio voice for 38 seasons, with JIM POWELL in his 13th season.
"WTMJ Radio and JOURNAL BROADCAST GROUP are cornerstones in the MILWAUKEE metro area, and we are thrilled to extend our partnership with them as we bring the MILWAUKEE BREWERS on radio to fans all over WISCONSIN," said BREWERS EVP - Business Operations RICK SCHLESINGER. "WTMJ’s commitment to covering the BREWERS is second to none and we are proud to continue this relationship as one of the great sports traditions in the region."
"We are very proud of our company’s continued partnership with the MILWAUKEE BREWERS," said JOURNAL EVP, Television and Radio Operations STEVE WEXLER. "JOURNAL BROADCAST GROUP and the MILWAUKEE BREWERS share a strong commitment to our community. We’re certainly proud of our history together but even more excited about the future. We are very pleased to be able to continue this partnership with the MILWAUKEE BREWERS. Our entire staff is excited about bringing the excitement of future BREWERS' seasons to our listeners throughout the state."
