WINNIPEG, MB – The Winnipeg Goldeyes are pleased to announce the continuation of their radio partnership with Kenora-based CJRL-FM “89.5 The Lake” as a network affiliate for the 2017 season.
“89.5 The Lake” will once again carry all 16 of the Goldeyes’ regular season Saturday broadcasts, the first of which is scheduled for May 20th against the expansion Cleburne Railroaders.
“We are very proud to continue our partnership with ‘89.5 The Lake,’ and excited to provide our loyal listeners with extended Goldeyes coverage throughout the season,” said Goldeyes’ general manager Andrew Collier. “Last year, the partnership was welcomed both by Kenora residents, as well as Winnipeggers traveling to the area. We look forward to even more fans having the opportunity to enjoy our broadcasts.”
All Goldeyes’ spring training, regular season, and potential playoff broadcasts will still be carried on 93.7 FM CJNU in Winnipeg.
“Congratulations to the Winnipeg Goldeyes on their championship last year!,” said Darell Plummer, Station Manager, CJRL-FM. “Hopefully that is the case again this year as Goldeyes fans in Kenora and Lake of the Woods area will be cheering the team on to victory in 2017! Join us Saturday nights enjoying the campfire with friends and family, listening to the ballgame on ‘Kenora’s #1 Summer Fun Station.’ It doesn’t get any better than that!”
