CHRW to air Mustangs hockey games

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

The Western Mustangs men’s hockey team will be invading the airwaves this season.

For the first time ever, all men’s hockey home games will be broadcast live on Western’s campus radio station, 94.9 CHRW. Football play-by-play has long been a staple of CHRW; the first game was covered nearly 30 years ago by a broadcast team that included current Global News anchor (and Western alum) Kevin Newman. This will be the first year that hockey will be prominently featured.

CHRW will also broadcast certain men’s hockey away games and a number of women’s hockey games and men’s and women’s basketball games.

The station will carry all playoff games for hockey and basketball, at home and on the road.

CHRW sports alumni include: Dan Shulman (ESPN Sunday Night Baseball), Elliot Friedman (CBC Sports), and the voice of the London Knights on 1290 CJBK, Mike Stubbs.
