The independent minor league baseball GARY SOUTHSHORE RAILCATS will be heard on LAKESHORE PUBLIC RADIO noncommercial WWLO (THE LAKESHORE)/LOWELL, IN this season. The team previously aired its games on MICHIGAN CITY FM BROADCASTERS AC-Oldies-Talk WEFM/MICHIGAN CITY, IN. ABDY VIANO will return as play-by-play voice for the fifth season.
"This is an exciting day for baseball fans in NORTHWEST INDIANA," RAILCAST Pres./GM ROGER WEXELBERG said. "By partnering with LAKESHORE PUBLIC RADIO and 89.1 FM, fans will now be able to hear the RAILCATS all summer throughout the region, in LAKE, PORTER and LAPORTE counties, and even into the south suburbs of CHICAGO. We are ecstatic to bring our games to those fans who have not been able to hear RAILCATS baseball in the past, and to also align ourselves with an organization as respected as LAKESHORE."
"LAKESHORE PUBLIC RADIO, 89.1 FM, is proud to partner with the RAILCATS in 2009," LAKESHORE PUBLIC TELEVISION and LAKESHORE PUBLIC RADIO President and CEO TOM CARROLL added. "The LAKESHORE is committed to being the source for the sports that matter most to NORTHWEST INDIANA. We hope to help the RAILCATS reach new audiences in their eighth season."
