MERIDIAN Sports WPTK-A (FOX SPORTS RADIO 1200)/FORT MYERS will carry FLORIDA EVERBLADES minor league hockey this season. The 'BLADES move to WPTK from crosstown BEASLEY Spoets WWCN-A after a 10 year run with that station. JOHN CURTIS will remain as play-by-play voice, but KEN SCHINKEL has retired as color commentator.
EVERBLADES President/GM CRAIG BRUSH told the FORT MYERS NEWS-PRESS that BEASLEY "has some other commitments, which would've reduced the number of games we can have (on the air). It was more than what was acceptable. FOX is very interested in being involved. It's a better commitment. We'll have over 60 games, for sure."
