CUMULUS Talk WBMQ-A/SAVANNAH takes over as the new radio home of minor league baseball's SAVANNAH SAND GNATS this season. The station will carry all 140 regular season games plus playoffs, with TOBY HYDE, former IOWA CUBS voice and SPORTSNET NEW YORK metsminorleagueblog.com writer, joining this year as play-by-play announcer.
"We are very fortunate to have a professional baseball franchise in Savannah, and that's why CUMULUS MEDIA is so excited to bring all of the SAND GNATS games to our listeners on Talk Radio WBMQ 630," said CUMULUS SAVANNAH Market Manager BLAKE MENDENHALL. "The SAND GNATS have a lot of terrific promotions planned for the entire family throughout the 2010 season, and all of our stations are proud to be supporting the team and the community they serve."
"We are very pleased to enter into this new relationship with CUMULUS MEDIA," said GNATS President JOHN KATZ. "GNATS fans will appreciate the signal strength and reach of GNATS, and the quality of TOBY's entertaining broadcasts. Throughout the season, GNATS fans will also appreciate the promotions and the wide-variety of music mix across all of their stations."
