"We are excited to join forces with ESPN 1230-1320 AM as both parties see this as a very logical partnership," said IRONPIGS Director of Media Relations & Broadcasting MATT PROVENCE. "For us, the opportunity to collaborate with a 24-hour sports station and to attach ourselves to the very powerful letters 'E-S-P-N' seemed the best way to cater to our loyal and passionate fans. At the same time, we feel we offer a key component to a radio station committed to the local sports scene."
