Rox Extend Broadcast Agreement with Townsquare Media, Hughes to Return in 2019
St. Cloud, MN – The St. Cloud Rox announced today that they have extended their radio broadcast agreement with Townsquare Media through the 2021 Northwoods League season.
Townsquare Media has been the radio play-by-play broadcast partner of Rox baseball since the Rox inaugural season in 2012, serving as the radio home of all 72 Rox home and away games on AM 1390 Granite City Sports.
“The entire Rox organization is thrilled to continue the partnership with Townsquare Media and have 1390 Granite City Sports once again be the radio broadcast home of all Rox games for many years ahead,” said Rox Co-Owner and Vice President Scott Schreiner. “We truly enjoy and appreciate the partnership between the Rox and Townsquare Media.”
Townsquare Media and 1390 Granite City Sports will continue to broadcast all of St. Cloud’s 72 home and away games, as well as any postseason Rox games during the 2019, 2020 and 2021 seasons.
“Townsquare Media of St. Cloud is very excited to announce the contract extension with the St. Cloud Rox as their broadcasting partner,” said David Engberg, Market President of Townsquare Media of St. Cloud. “The St. Cloud Rox are one of, if not the top, family entertainment/sports franchises in the area and we are proud to continue our relationship with them. We look forward to the next three years and many beyond that.”
Along with extending the broadcast agreement with Townsquare Media, the Rox also announced that Evan Hughes will be returning to the booth as the radio play-by-play voice of the Rox in 2019. Hughes, who just wrapped up his first season in St. Cloud, was named the Play-by-Play Announcer of the Year in 2018, an award voted on by Hughes’ peers throughout the Northwoods League.
