Loggers Radio Network to Continue on Eagle 102.7!
La Crosse, Wis. – The La Crosse Loggers front office announced today that they have entered into a three-year contract extension with the La Crosse Media Group that will call for The Eagle 102.7 FM (KQEG) to continue as the flagship station of the Loggers Radio Network broadcasts through the 2019 season.
The latest agreement adds to an ongoing relationship between the two groups that spans back to the Loggers inaugural season of 2003, when the La Crosse Radio Group owned the rights to ESPNRadio and began broadcasting Loggers games back on June 3, 2003. The two organizations have been partners in radio ever since that first broadcast and will continue to be for at least the next three seasons.
Fans will be able to listen to all 72 regular season Loggers games on 102.7 FM once again in 2017 but may also do so through the Loggers Radio Network listening app available for free download in the App Store for Iphones and Android phones. Fans may also listen to live broadcasts online at www.lacrosseloggers.com.
In conjunction with the contract extension with the La Crosse Media Group, the Loggers also proudly announced that their off-season radio show, “Talkin’ Baseball with the Loggers”, will also return for its eleventh off-season beginning on Tuesday, December 6. The only all-baseball radio talk show of its kind in the Coulee Region will be broadcast live from Castaways on the Island (131 Clinton Street, La Crosse) from 5-7 p.m. each Tuesday night through the first Tuesday in April when the Major League baseball season commences. The show is open to the public to attend or to listen live on the Loggers flagship, Eagle 102.7 FM (KQEG).
The Loggers are set to open the 2017 campaign, their 15th season in La Crosse, on Tuesday, May 30 when they play host to the Duluth Huskies at 7:05 p.m. Air time on the Loggers Radio Network will be 6:30 p.m.
The La Crosse Loggers are a member of the finest developmental league for elite college baseball players, the Northwoods League. The 23-year-old summer collegiate league is the largest organized baseball league in the world with 20 teams, drawing significantly more fans, in a friendly ballpark experience, than any league of its kind. A valuable training ground for coaches, umpires and front office staff, more than 160 former Northwoods League players have advanced to Major League Baseball, including two-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer (WAS), two-time World Series Champion Ben Zobrist (CHC) and MLB All-Stars Chris Sale (CWS), Jordan Zimmermann (DET), Curtis Granderson (NYM) and Lucas Duda (NYM). All league games are viewable live via the Northwoods League portal.
