Introducing the Marksmen Radio Network
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – As the SPHL season quickly approaches, the Fayetteville Marksmen officially announce the launch of the Marksmen Radio Network, fans’ home for all live Marksmen broadcasts.
The Marksmen Radio Network is the first of its kind for the organization, and will work congruently with the league’s video streaming partner of Neulion, which provides live video and audio of every single SPHL game.
All 56 home-and-away Marksmen hockey games during the course of the 2018-19 SPHL season will be broadcast live on MarksmenRadio.com by Director of Digital Marketing and Media Shawn Bednard. The broadcasts will feature a 30 minute pregame show, intermission shows, and a post-game show to accompany the in-game broadcasts.
As well as the Game Day broadcasts, the network will also be home to the weekly Marksmen Coach’s Show, hosted by Bednard featuring Head Coach Jesse Kallechy, as well as other players and coaches of the organization. The show’s name and venue are TBA.
Bednard expressed great excitement in launching the network.
“Building a legitimate media network for our fans and community was priority number one when I was hired by the organization. Being able to bring live radio broadcasts of every single game only makes it that much easier for fans to be able to enjoy the game day experience, whether they can’t make it to the Crown, or we’re 10 hours away,” said Bednard “I’m honored to be able to paint the picture of Marksmen hockey for the entire season to come, and look forward to getting things going.”
The Marksmen Radio Network becomes the latest proponent underneath the Marksmen Media Network, which will feature video-and-audio highlights of every single game of the season, as well as exclusive behind-the-scenes features on players, the organization, interviews with players and coaches, and the game day experience from every angle.
Advertising opportunities are abundant for community organizations and businesses who want to partner with the Marksmen, but may not have the budget to become a corporate partner. With 56 games in the season, plus a weekly coach’s show, the exposure is massive. If you’re interested in hearing more about the advertising options and benefits, please email Shawn at SBednard@MarksmenHockey.com.
