"We are excited to continue our relationship with The Game," said Sounds general manager Brad Tammen. "Sounds fans and sponsors enjoyed the first year on their airwaves and we look forward to continuing to grow the relationship. "
"The Sounds were an important part of 102.5 The Game in 2012 and we are truly excited that our partnership will continue. The Sounds are Nashville's professional baseball team and, as a locally-owned sports station, we are committed to supporting all of our teams," said station manager Jeff Kolb.
The Game will air nearly all of the Sounds' 144 games over the airwaves on 102.5 FM. A few Sounds broadcasts that conflict with Nashville Predators games will instead air as a simulcast on 102.1 FM, 101.9 FM, and 830 AM.
All game broadcasts will also be available to Sounds fans via live internet webcast based at www.nashvillesounds.com.
Jeff Hem, the "Voice of the Sounds," returns for his second season behind the microphone for all broadcasts.
Broadcasts will begin approximately 15 minutes prior to game time and will include a five-minute postgame show. The Sounds enter their ninth season as the Milwaukee Brewers' Triple-A affiliate in 2013. The partnership will also include the annual broadcast of the Triple-A All-Star Game, which is slated for July 17 in Reno, Nevada.
