BURLINGTON COUNTY COLLEGE Top 40/Rhythmic WBZC (Z889)/PEMBERTON, NJ is the new official radio station of minor league baseball's CAMDEN RIVERSHARKS, and will broadcast all of the team's home games and pre-game shows both on-air and via the web.
Z889 students will be involved in the broadcasts, gaining experience from the RIVERSHARKS’ very own TIM SAUNDERS.
“We are very extremely pleased to have this partnership.” said WBZC GM ADAM LORBER. “Z889 has such a strong signal all throughout SOUTHERN NEW JERSEY, and this will help us expand our presence in this market. This was an opportunity we just couldn’t pass up.”
“We are very excited about becoming the flagship station for the CAMDEN RIVERSHARKS,” Said WBZC OM/PD BRETT HOLCOMB. "This partnership will help promote the BURLINGTON COUNTY COLLEGE and Z889 brands, but more importantly it will give BCC students the opportunity to work with a professional organization and one of the best play by play announcers in the country, TIM SAUNDERS.”
