Minor league baseball's COLUMBUS CLIPPERS will be heard on NORTH AMERICAN BROADCASTING Adult Standards WMNI-A/COLUMBUS, OH starting next season under a new five-year deal. The CLIPPERS, the AAA INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE affiliate of the CLEVELAND INDIANS, were heard for selected weekend games on WMNI in the 2006 and 2007 seasons, and the team's predecessors, the COLUMBUS JETS, aired on the station in 1962-67. Crosstown Talk WVKO-A carried the CLIPPERS last season. The 2009 season will be the team's first in its new HUNTINGTON PARK.
"We are extremely happy to renew a great partnership with NORTH AMERICAN BROADCASTING," said CLIPPERS Pres./GM KEN SCHNACKE. "WMNI and COLUMBUS baseball have had a tremendous and rich history together throughout the years and we are excited to revive that relationship. We feel that together we can re-energize CLIPPERS baseball on radio and that we can team-up to be great partners in the community."
"We are excited about teaming with the CLIPPERS. It is an honor to be associated with their commitment to excellence and tradition," said NORTH AMERICAN Pres./CEO MATT MNICH. "We want baseball fans in Central OHIO to follow our home town team on WMNI."
