Minor league hockey's NEW MEXICO SCORPIONS will be heard once again this season on CITADEL BROADCASTING's Sports KNML-A (610 THE SPORTS ANIMAL) and Talk KTBL-A/ALBUQUERQUE under a new three-year deal. ADAM MINNICK will call the action, with game coverage including 15 minute pre- and post-game show; the stations will also air a twice-a-month "SCORPIONS ROUNDUP" show with coach RANDY MURPHY.
"I am excited to stay with our friends at CITADEL," said MINNICK. "610 THE SPORTS ANIMAL has been the premier sports talk station in this market for years and is a great fit for our product."
"The relationship with CITADEL goes far beyond our game broadcasts," said SCORPIONS Pres./GM GARY GELINAS. "The marketing partnership we are continuing to build on will make more people aware of the great entertainment the SCORPIONS provide for the State of NEW MEXICO."
CITADEL Market Manager MILT MCCONNELL added, "We are thrilled to extend our relationship with the SCORPIONS. Broadcasting live and local sports is our focus at CITADEL, and this is an important piece of what we bring to the market."
