The ARENA FOOTBALL LEAGUE's MILWAUKEE IRON will be heard on ENTERCOM Sports WSSP-A (SPORTSRADIO 1250)/MILWAUKEE this season. MATT MENZI will call the action for all 16 regular-season games and playoffs.
"SPORTSRADIO 1250 is delighted to partner with the MILWAUKEE IRON to bring the raw excitement of arena football to our passionate listeners. Summer just got a lot more fun! It'll be a thrill to see the IRON light-up the BRADLEY CENTER and we're proud to be the online and radio on-air home for MILWAUKEE to hear every rockin' game," said WSSP Program Director TOM PARKER.
"The agreement with SPORTSRADIO 1250 WSSP to broadcast MILWAUKEE IRON games is tremendous for our fans. The AFL is the most fan-friendly league in all of professional sports and we want IRON fans to follow us live for each and every step we take throughout our 'Iron-Clad Playoff Guarantee' season. Our move to the AFL has produced a number of great media relationships including the league's national television package with the NFL NETWORK, internet game broadcasts with NIFTY TV and this tremendous association with SPORTSRADIO 1250 WSSP. This partnership will give Iron fans the opportunity to catch all of our regular season games, as well as postseason games, live on-line or on the radio through WSSP. I am excited because this agreement includes more than just game broadcasts, it is designed to build a complete sports marketing package that will enable the Iron to grow in the community," said IRON GM JASON CLARK.
The IRON is joining the newly-reconstituted AFL this season after playing in the ARENAFOOTBALL2 league; the new AFL consists of teams from both the old, defunct AFL and AF2.
