LAKEWOOD, NJ - The BlueClaws and Townsquare Media have extended their agreement to ensure that every BlueClaws game is carried on WOBM-AM 1160 and 1310 through at least 2015.
The three year extension extends the partnership that began in 2002, the BlueClaws' second season of existence.
"Townsquare Media has been a tremendous partner of ours for the last 10 years," said BlueClaws General Manager Geoff Brown. "This agreement ensures that our fans can continue to hear BlueClaws games on the same stations for more than a decade. We're ecstatic to be in a situation like this."
In addition to all games being carried on WOBM-AM 1160 and 1310, all games will also be streamed on ShoreSportsNetwork.com.
"We put such an emphasis on our local, Jersey Shore community, and the BlueClaws are obviously an extension of that," said Kevin Williams, Townsquare Media's Shore Sports Network Director. "They're a big part of our programming and we're thrilled to extend our partnership."
The previous agreement, announced in 2008, ensured that all games would be carried through 2012, and this three-year extension means all games will be carried on Townsquare's WOBM-AM 1160 and 1310 through 2015.
Greg Giombarrese returns for his fourth season as the "Voice of the BlueClaws," broadcasting all 140 games. Adam Giardino joins the broadcast team this year, serving as pre and post-game show host as well as providing play by play during home games.
Each broadcast begins with the BlueClaws Beat Pre-Game Show 15 minutes prior to the scheduled first pitch and concludes with a 15-minute post-game show.
The BlueClaws open the 2012 season in Greenville for a 7:00 game on April 5th and begin the home schedule with a 6:35 game on April 12th against Hagerstown.
This year, the BlueClaws will welcome their 5-millionth fan to FirstEnergy Park, becoming the fastest team in New Jersey and South Atlantic League history to do so. They have led the league and state in attendance in all 11 years of existence.
All 2012 BlueClaws tickets are now on sale by calling 732-901-7000 or online at BlueClaws.com.
