The Clinton LumberKings announced a new radio deal, extending their potential audience.
The Clinton LumberKings (Low Class A; Midwest League) announced a new broadcast partnership with KCLN-AM 1390 to air all games on the Clinton-based station through 2013. The agreement includes a tie-in with KCLN’s FM affiliate, KMCN-FM 94.7 (“Mac FM”), allowing the LumberKings the opportunity to advertise to new audiences in Clinton and as far as the Quad Cities.
The “Voice of LumberKings Baseball” on KCLN will be a familiar one. Dave Lezotte, who has handled the radio duties on the road each of the last three seasons will take over the play-by-play for all 140 regular-season games, the 2009 Midwest League All-Star Game and any post-season play.
“We’re extremely excited to be back on the air at KCLN. With them we have a strong partnership that allows us to expand our advertising market while maintaining a great standard of broadcasting for our fans,” said Nate Kreinbrink, LumberKings’ Assistant General Manager. “We’re also pleased to have Dave back in the fold as our announcer for a fourth year.”
The partnership not only benefits the LumberKings, but also includes additional advertising for both KCLN and KMCN at Alliant Energy Field. Both stations will be highly visible at the ballpark, in the gameday program and on the team’s website, LumberKings.com.
