Minor league hockey's MANCHESTER MONARCHS ink a two-year deal with ABSOLUTE BROADCASTING to air its games on Sports WGAM-A (THE GAME)/MANCHESTER, NH. The team formerly aired on crosstown CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WGIR-A for the last seven seasons.
WGAM will air all 80 regular season games each year plus CALDER CUP playoffs; when a conflict with BOSTON RED SOX or NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS play-by-play arises, the MONARCHS will be bumped to sister Talk WSMN-A/NASHUA, NH. WGAM will also carry "MONARCHS MINUTES" features and will host MONARCHS players and staff on the afternoon "HOME TEAM" show. KEN CAIL will handle play-by-play for the club, the top minor league affiliate of the NHL's LOS ANGELES KINGS.
