The Thunder have formally announced a new broadcast team for this season. Taking the departed Steve Rudenstein's place will be Jay Burnham, a 28-year-old graduate of Elon, worked for the Asheville Tourists for the past two seasons. Before Asheville, Burnham worked with the Pensacola Pelicans.
Joining him will be Justin Shackil
, a Fordham graduate who replaces Jared Smith
as the Thunder's color analyst. Smith left the Thunder to take a position at Florida Atlantic University.
On Shackil's resume are stints with the Frontier League's Gateway Grizzlies and the 2009 U.S. Open.
