The Tulsa Drillers have announced that the team's radio broadcasts this season will once again be aired in Tulsa on iHeart Media radio station AM 1430, The Buzz. The 2019 season will mark the 34th consecutive season that the Drillers and iHeart Media have partnered for game broadcasts, and it will be the 15th straight year that The Buzz has been the radio home of Drillers Baseball.
The Buzz is a 24-hour sports station that is the Fox Sports Radio affiliate in the Tulsa area.
The team also announced that Dennis Higgins will be back for his 11th season as the voice of the Drillers. The veteran broadcaster brings a wealth of experience to the Tulsa booth with a combined 26 years behind the microphone in minor and major league baseball.
Higgins, an Oxnard, California native, reached the majors when he served a stint in the radio booth with the San Francisco Giants. He was also named the Oklahoma Sportscaster of the Year in 2017.
Each of the 140 Drillers regular season games will be heard live. Occasional scheduling conflicts, such as weekday, afternoon games, will force some games to air on KAKC, AM 1300.
All of the broadcasts can also be streamed online at TulsaDrillers.com or through the First Pitch MiLB app. In addition, broadcasts will be available on most mobile devices through the free iHeart Radio App.
The first broadcast of the 2019 season will take place on Thursday, April 4 when the Drillers begin the quest to defend their Texas League Championship at ONEOK Field against the Arkansas Travelers.
For nightly games with a 7:05 PM first pitch, the pregame show will begin at 6:50 PM.
