MILLENIUM Oldies simulcast WOBM-A/LAKEWOOD, NJ-WADB-A/ASBURY PARK, NJ will air MONMOUTH UNIVERSITY men's basketball for the next three seasons. The games will also be streamed live on shoresportsnetwork.com. EDDY OCCHIPNITI and MATT HARMON will call the action.
"The University is excited about the new and positive direction of its basketball programs and wants to showcase this opportunity for all to share," said the school's Vice President and Director of Athletics, Dr. MARILYN MCNEIL. "Commercial radio is a way for us to connect the energy of our new coaches with the public and we cannot wait to bring MU basketball to all of our listeners through this new platform."
"MILLENNIUM RADIO NEW JERSEY is thrilled to be partnering with MONMOUTH UNIVERSITY to bring HAWKS' basketball to the SHORE SPORTS NETWORK," said SHORE SPORTS NETWORK Director and WOBM-A-F VP of Quality Control KEVIN WILLIAMS. "MONMOUTH basketball is a logical compliment to our lineup which already includes HAWKS football. We are thrilled that shore basketball fans will now be able to follow the HAWKS on WOBM AM 1160/1310 all season long. With new coach KING RICE coming in this is an exciting time for the program and we're happy to be a part of it."
