Thunder Announce New Radio Station

(PR) The Trenton Thunder, the Double-A Affiliate of the New York Yankees, have announced a three-year agreement for all Thunder games to be broadcast on Rider University’s 107.7 WRRC-FM through the 2011 season. The announcement was made at a press conference on Monday, February 16th at 11 AM in Rider University’s Student Recreation Center.

WRRC-FM plays a variety of music including: Top 40, adult hits, and the oldies. It is also the flagship station for Rider University men’s and women’s basketball. 107.7 WRRC-FM can be heard throughout Mercer County, and into Bucks and Burlington counties.

“Broadcasting via an FM signal is a huge asset for Thunder fans listening on 107.7 FM and over the Internet,” Thunder General Manager/ C.O.O. Will Smith said. “We work closely with Rider to host the MAAC Baseball Tournament and we look forward to expanding our relationship to include Trenton Thunder radio broadcasts for the next three years.”

Broadcasts start on Wednesday, April 8th as the Thunder host the Binghamton Mets at 7:05 PM. Thunder broadcaster Steve Rudenstein will return for his fourth consecutive season behind the microphone. He will be joined by first-year Thunder broadcaster Jared Smith.

“Rider University’s 107.7 FM The Bronc is proud to be a broadcast partner and outlet for Trenton Thunder baseball,” John Mozes, General Manager/Student Advisor 107.7 The Bronc WRRC-FM said. “This agreement provides our students with an excellent learning opportunity and is a great way to strengthen our listening base beyond Rider and into Mercer, Bucks and Burlington counties.”

For the second consecutive season, all Thunder broadcasts will be streamed live online at http://www.milb.com. As part of the agreement with Rider, Thunder broadcasts can also be heard through Rider University’s Axis TV on both the Lawrenceville and Princeton campuses as well as through a secondary 107.7 FM internet stream.

    Do you know if the signal is strong enough to be picked up in any of the 5 boros of New York City? I like listening to games live, from the radio, instead of having to log in to the ‘net.

    All I can really do is to say to turn on the radio and check it out…if you can get their signal now, I’d imagine you can get it during the year as well…

    I tried the station coming home from the SBA the other night heading south. I was at rt 129 where rt 29 intersects (1/2 mile from waterfront park) and started loosing the signal. By the time I hit rt 130 on rt 295 the station was gone. I got better reception with last years AM station. Let’s hope they crank up the watts for the games. If not, I guess I’ll just be listening to whatever other games are on the radio while Im driving home from the Thunder game
