SOUNDS EXTEND PARTNERSHIP WITH “THE GAME”

102.5 FM Will Continue To Broadcast Nashville Baseball Games; Former Major Leaguer Kevin Jarvis To Join Announce Team

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Nashville Sounds Baseball Club is excited to announce an extension of its partnership  with  102.5  “The  Game”  (WPRT-FM) as  the  team’s  flagship  station  for game broadcasts during the 2015 season.

The  Game,  which  has  served  as  the  team’s  flagship  station  since  2012,  will  air  all  of  the  Sounds’  144   games over the airwaves with nearly all on 102.5 FM and select games on 94.9 FM “Game 2″ in 2015.

“We  are  pleased  to  continue  our  relationship  with  The  Game,”  said  Sounds  COO  Garry  Arthur.  “It  is   important to us to align with a partner who shares our excitement for the opening of First Tennessee Park and can carry all of the games on  a  station  that  focuses  on  sports  programming.”

“We  are  thrilled  to  continue  broadcasting  the Sounds games on our stations. We’ve  seen  the  excitement   First Tennessee Park has generated for the Nashville community and as a local business,  we’re  proud  to be  involved,”  said  Jana  Hampton,  general  manager  of 102.5 The Game.

Sounds broadcasts which will be pre-empted from 102.5 FM and will instead air on 94.9 FM include: April 9, April 11, and any Nashville Predators playoff games that conflict with the Sounds’  schedule.

All game broadcasts will also be available to Sounds fans via a live internet webcast based at www.nashvillesounds.com as  well  as  on  mobile  devices  using  The  Game’s  app  or  the  TunedIn  Radio  app. Jeff  Hem,  the  “Voice  of  the  Sounds,”  will  be  behind  the  microphone  for  all  broadcasts  during  his  fourth season in the Music City.

Kevin Jarvis, who appeared for 10 Major League teams during his 15-year pro career and also pitched for the Sounds in 2004, will join select broadcasts as color commentator this season.

Broadcasts will begin approximately 15 minutes prior to game time and will include a postgame show. The Sounds enter their first season as the Oakland  Athletics’ Triple-A affiliate in 2015. The partnership will also include the annual broadcast of the Triple-A All-Star Game, which is slated for July 15 in Omaha, Nebraska.

102.5  The  Game’s  baseball  coverage  also  includes  broadcasts  of  ESPN’s  “Sunday  Night  Baseball”  when   there isn’t a conflict with a Sounds broadcast. The station also serves as the flagship station for the NHL’s Nashville Predators and airs Middle Tennessee State University football  and  men’s  basketball  games,  and   is simulcast on 97.5 FM in Rutherford County.

The Sounds kick off their 2015 season with an April 9th road contest in Colorado Springs and will host 72 home games at brand-new First Tennessee Park in 2015, beginning with the 7:05 p.m. home opener against Colorado Springs on Friday, April 17th.
