BlueClaws GM Hits the Airwaves

BlueClaws General Manager Brandon Marano was on the radio this morning, joining both WOBM stations to talk about FanFest, at FirstEnergy Park this Saturday.

He was on the AM with Bob & Marianne, an interview which you can listen to by clicking here or using the embed player below. 1160/1310 WOBM-AM, by the way, is the radio home of the BlueClaws.

Brandon was also on with Shawn & Sue (participants in the June 17th Celebrity Hitting Challenge) on 92.7 WOBM FM, which you can listen to by clicking here.

BlueClaws, Townsquare Extend Agreement

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

We’re very excited to announce that the BlueClaws and Townsquare Media have extended their agreement and all BlueClaws games will be now be carried on WOBM-AM 1160/1310 as well as through 2015.

The BlueClaws have been on these stations since 2002 and this agreement ensures 14 straight years on the same stations, which is tremendous.

Here are the quotes:

BlueClaws GM Geoff Brown: Townsquare Media has been a tremendous partner of ours for the last 10 years. This agreement ensures that our fans can continue to hear BlueClaws games on the same stations for more than a decade. We’re ecstatic to be in a situation like this.

Townsquare Director of the Shore Sports Network Kevin Williams: We put such an emphasis on our local, Jersey Shore community, and the BlueClaws are obviously an extension of that. They’re a big part of our programming and we’re thrilled to extend our partnership.

On a side note, Adam Giardino and I will be blogging on that site as well as this one during the season, with the first one going up later this week. We’ll share those blogs here as well.

BlueClaws games begin with the BlueClaws Beat Pre-Game Show 15 minutes before the first pitch. The first broadcast begins at 6:45 pm on April 5th, a week from tomorrow.

Here is the full release.

Ted DiBiase on the Shore Sports Report

Friday, June 18th, 2010

Ted Dibase, the Million Dollar Man, who will sign autographs at Saturday’s BlueClaws game, joined Mike and Joe on the Shore Sports Report earlier today. Here are some highlights:

  • Funniest line was when Joe Giglio was welcoming him in and said that he didn’t know what to call him, Ted or the Million Dollar Man, but DiBiase said “You can just call me Rich.”
  • Vince McMahon: “I liked working for him because I never got paid any better…I’ve never seen a man in my life with more work ethic. Nobody works in that company any harder than he does.”
  • Million Dollar Man was Vince’s personal creation. “If Vince were to become one of the characters, this is what he would be.”
  • He flew first class in an effort to market the character as a guy who really was one of the richest men in the world.
  • Favorite guy to go against: “Hulk Hogan, that’s who I made the most money wrestling. As far as in the ring, Jake the Snake. He was really really good. I had some great matches with Bret Hart as well.”
  • “I loved Andre the Giant. He genuinally was a gentle giant. But when you’re 7-4 / 450, you can’t hide anywhere. He hated to be crowded. Now we go to Japan, a 14-hour flight. We check in and drop off our bags. I push the button and he comes in the elevator. Now we’re going down, and each floor, someone else gets in. People keep getting on. Then he winks at me. I don’t know how to say this, but the Giant let out the longest, gas. When the elevator door opened, it was a mass exodus.” LOL.

Arrive early. The line will form when the gates open at 6:00 pm. The signing begins when the game starts, at 7:05.
