REGENT Oldies WTRX (THE OLDIES CHANNEL)/PONTIAC-BLOOMINGTON-NORMAL, IL will serve as the radio home of the FRONTIER LEAGUE's new NORMAL CORNBELTERS independent minor league baseball club as they begin play in 2010. The deal is for two years and includes streaming at the station's website and select games to air on Talk WJBC-A and its website.
"BLOOMINGTON/NORMAL has a rich history in baseball, from amateur to professional," said cluster VP/FM RED PITCHER. "And along the way WJBC and its family of stations have followed the first to last pitch. It is only natural that we partner with the CORNBELTERS organization as they bring professional baseball back to the TWIN CITIES. We are looking forward to many exciting evenings and afternoons at the ball yard."
"The CORNBELTERS are delighted to partner with such a quality radio group as BLOOMINGTON BROADCASTING," said team Pres. STEVE MALLIET. "With a strong signal from our official broadcast partner WTRX 93.7 FM, our fans throughout CENTRAL ILLINOIS will be able to follow the CORNBELTERS at home and on the road."
