The first broadcast will be the Wenatchee Wild season opener on Sept. 7 when the Wild visit the Vernon Vipers.
Kevin Andrus, VP Market Manager of Cherry Creek Media Wenatchee, stated, “We are thrilled to announce our partnership and be able to provide Wenatchee Wild games on our radio station, KPQ AM. We are looking forward to another exciting year of hockey with the Wenatchee Wild and all of us at Cherry Creek Media will be rooting for them to keep the Fred Page Cup in Wenatchee!”
Play-by-play coverage will be provided by twenty-three year junior hockey broadcast veteran Arch Ecker, who enters his third season with the Wild. In addition to the traditional “over-the-air” broadcast, a free internet stream is available through the station website (kpq.com).
