Admirals Radio is Moving!
“We’re proud to bring Admirals hockey to a new radio home on the Big920,” said Turer. “With the fantastic Aaron Sims continuing to call the action and all of the enhancements that our new partners at iHeartRadio will bring, Admirals hockey on the radio will be entering a powerful new age.”
Admirals broadcasts will begin with Sims’ 30 minute pre-game show, featuring a preview of that night’s game and in-depth interviews with coaches and players. Additionally, Milwaukee Admirals Center Ice, a one-hour radio show dedicated to the Admirals, and hockey in general, will air on Monday nights from 6-7 pm on The Big 920.
“We couldn’t be more excited to welcome the Admirals to The Big 920 and the iHeart Milwaukee family. Admirals fans are loyal and passionate and we look forward to connecting with the team and it’s marketing partners on multiple stations and platforms,” said Valkoun. “The Admirals provide major-league entertainment in a fun minor-league atmosphere. We are looking forward to many exciting nights at Panther Arena.”
