The Rochester Knighthawks, in conjunction with iHeartMedia, announced today a new broadcast agreement, making 107.3 The Bull the exclusive flagship radio station for all 18 regular-season Knighthawks games during the 2019-20 National Lacrosse League season.
“We’re thrilled to be the radio home of the Rochester Knighthawks for what is sure to be a great inaugural season,” said Julie Dunn, program director of 107.3 The Bull. “We’re proud of this partnership and look forward to an exciting new chapter in Rochester Knighthawks lacrosse history. Go Hawks!”
Beginning this season, all 18 regular-season Knighthawks games and all potential playoff games will air live on 107.3 The Bull, who also served as the radio home for the previous Knighthawks franchise.
Craig Rybczynski, who spent the previous 18 years as the radio and TV play-by-play voice of the former Knighthawks, will return as broadcaster for the expansion-era Knighthawks while also serving as the team’s lacrosse operations manager. The 2019-20 season will be the 21st for Rybczynski in the National Lacrosse League. He will be joined alongside by color analyst Brendan McDaniels, who brings over 20 years of experience to the broadcasts.
Fans can also access the broadcasts online at www.1073thebull.com and on mobile devices by downloading the iHeartRadio app at iHeartRadio.com.
“Today is a prideful day for our organization as we now have an official home for our Knighthawks on the radio,” said Knighthawks Vice President of Business Operations Rob Minter. “We’re excited to partner with iHeartMedia and look forward to a successful inaugural season. We’re also excited to have ‘Ripper’ (Rybczynski) and his team cover the games as fans will get to experience one of the best broadcasting teams in the NLL.”
Knighthawks players, coaches and management personnel will continue to make interview appearances on iHeartMedia programming throughout the season.
