The Southern Illinois Miners announce that they have partnered with River Radio in an exclusive, multi-year agreement to broadcast their games online at 1035espn.com.
The five-year agreement, beginning in 2019, covers all Miners regular season and postseason games, as well as two preseason games per year. Jason Guerette will return for a sixth season in the broadcast booth as the “Voice of the Miners,” providing live play-by-play commentary for each contest.
“This is exciting for us,” Miners COO Mike Pinto said. “We have had a longtime relationship with River Radio, and the decision to partner with them for our broadcasts was a natural one. They have invested in the technology to help bring our fans the best broadcasts possible, and have the depth of marketing to be sure all Miners fans in the area know about our games.”
“River Radio is very excited to take our long-standing relationship with the Southern Illinois Miners to the next level as the new home for Miners baseball on 1035espn.com,” said Steve Falat, GM and Market Manager for River Radio.
