WJEJ will broadcast Suns games this season

March 31, 2009

WJEJ will serve as the flagship station for Hagerstown Suns radio broadcasts, the Suns announced Tuesday.

The Hagerstown station, at 1240 AM, will broadcast all 140 Suns games for the 2009 season.

WICL (True Oldies 95.9) had carried the Suns games for the last few seasons.

"The Suns are proud to be associated with a radio station that is so strongly tied to the local community," Suns President Bob Flannery said. "Our partnership with WJEJ gives Suns fans one more reason to be excited about 2009."

WJEJ was the original radio station of the Suns, carrying games for the team's first 15 seasons, beginning in 1981.

"I've always been a fan of the Suns, and I'm looking forward to a new beginning," said John Staub, owner and general manager of WJEJ. "We will be providing the very best in equipment and the very best in radio play."

Ryan Mock, Suns director of media relations and broadcasting, returns for his third season as the radio voice of the Suns. He will be joined behind the microphone by newcomer Darin Sense.


"It's good to be back on WJEJ," Mock said. "I've been in Hagerstown for a few years now, and during my time here I have learned that WJEJ is truly a staple of the regional culture."

The Suns, a Class A affiliate of the Washington Nationals, open their South Atlantic League season April 9 at Lake County (Eastlake, Ohio). The team is owned by Los Angeles-based Mandalay Baseball Properties.
