Express broadcasts to go exclusively online
Eau Claire, Wis. - April 24, 2012 - The Eau Claire Express front office announced today that their 70-game Northwoods League schedule will be broadcast exclusively online during 2012. As in the past three seasons, the Express will be teaming up with Maverick Media to provide fans with a high-quality broadcast. The only change will be that the broadcast will be found at www.wayy790.com on your computer rather than on the 790 AM radio dial. Broadcasts will also be available by downloading the TuneIn Radio application on your iPad or smartphone.
Smartphones compatible with the TuneIn Radio app are the iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone, Samsung Bada, or Palm webOS phone. To learn more about the free app, visit www.tunein.com/mobile. The functionality of this phone application will allow fans to continue to listen to Express games while on-the-go.
NewsTalk 790 WAYY is a part of the Maverick Media family of radio stations that includes: WAXX 104.5, I-94, BOB FM 99.9, 92.9 The Big Cheese and ESPN 1150. You can find a link to the NewsTalk 790 online stream of Express games by clicking on the WAYY logo on the left side of the Express website.
