ESPN 100.9-FM to Host Ribbon-Cutting
ESPN 100.9-FM, WLUN Pinconning, will unveil its new state-of-the-art radio studios with a special ribbon-cutting ceremony January 28, 2009, held in conjunction with the Midland Chamber of Commerce. The studios for the Tri-Cities' only 24-hour all-sports station have been re-located to the press box at Dow Diamond, overlooking the baseball field. Since the station's purchase in March 2008, operation of the station has taken place in the Citadel Broadcasting studios in Saginaw.
The event will begin at 4pm on the third floor of Dow Diamond and is open to the public. Complementary soft drinks and snacks will be provided, and a cash bar will be available.
"We are looking forward to many great years of operation from here, providing exceptional sports talk and play-by-play to our listeners across the region," said Paul Barbeau, president and general manager of ESPN 100.9-FM. "We are extremely appreciative of Citadel Broadcasting's efforts to house our operation during the transition period. They continue to be a tremendous partner to us."
