Atlantic City AFL Team to Air Games on 97.3 ESPN
97.3 ESPN will now be home to the new Atlantic City arena football league games. The news was announced Tuesday morning by George Manias, COO of Atlantic City AFL.
“The partnership between the team and Townsquare Media couldn’t be a better fit,” said George Manias, COO of Atlantic City AFL. “Having our games aired on the go-to sports station in the market makes it easy for fans to find us on the dial. Their reach and format are ideal for what we are doing, and we will all benefit greatly from this partnership. All twelve regular season games, plus our playoff games will be on air, making it easy for fans to follow our journey to win a championship.”
The Atlantic City games will be broadcast by "Friday Night Live” and the “College Football Countdown to Kickoff” host, Nick Kosko, who also calls some of the stations high school football and basketball games.
"I couldn't be more thrilled to be chosen as the voice of the Atlantic City AFL team as we embark on inaugural season,” said Kosko. “I have been a fan of the league for years and I am excited for this opportunity to bring a local flavor to all of our listeners and ensure they get the best coverage of this team and in the entire AFL. The season can’t come fast enough.”
Kosko will also host a weekly coaches radio show on 97.3 ESPN South Jersey, featuring live interviews with head coach Ron James and various players throughout the season. The location, time and air date of the show will be announced at a later time.
The first game of the season will be on Saturday, April 27, when AC plays at the Philadelphia Soul.
