This is a station editorial, I'm Randal J. Miller, station president. I'm departing from my usual rants about state government, to share some positive, exciting news with you.
First, our radio group had a baby on January First! Yes, we launched our first all-sports radio station on the air and on line, that can be heard in both our Taylorville and Clinton markets. It's called THE WINNER and heard in Christian County at 96-point-5 FM, and on-line in our Clinton market and everywhere else, at THEWINNER965.COM.
This 24 hour a day all-sports radio station features national sportstalk from the Sports Map Radio Network, as its primary network. But, THE WINNER also is airing play by play of Chicago Bulls Basketball, and a full schedule of Big Ten Basketball from the Compass Media Networks. THE WINNER will also broadcast ALL the games of the Big Ten Tournament in March.
THE WINNER 96-5 and THEWINNER965.COM has also signed an agreement to broadcast EVERY game of the Chicago Bears next fall, and we're in discussions with one of the Midwest's Major League Baseball teams to carry all of their games.
Local programing on THE WINNER 96-5 and THEWINNER965.COM comes to you every Wednesday afternoon from one til 3, when our Miller Media Group sports announcers talk about high school, collegiate, and professional sports on a show we call "THE SPORTS GUYS."
We hope you'll listen this our new all-sports radio station, either on the air at 96-point-5 FM in Christian County, or in Clinton and everywhere else on-line at THEWINNER965.COM!
Second, we're proud of our local farm broadcaster and Clinton station manager Jared White, who is the creator and producer of a weekly hour-long show on fishing and hunting called "Central Illinois Outdoors". This show focuses on fishing, hunting, outdoor recreation, & conservation in central Illinois, primarily on the Clinton Lake and Lake Shelbyville areas.
The show will feature up-to-date weekly fishing information on local lakes from professional guides, include "Celebrity Sportsman" and "Catch of the Week" segments as well. It can be heard on 3 of our stations every weekend.
As we enter 2021, we are excited about the launch of our new all-sports radio station and our new fishing and hunting show. Give'em a listen and let me know what you think. Our e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
