Thunder, TCNJ formally announce radio merger

The Thunder formally announced their partnership with WTSR 91. 3 FM, the radio station at The College of New Jersey, to broadcast all of the team's games -- regular-season and postseason -- for at least the next two years.

"This new partnership expands the reach of Trenton Thunder baseball within the region," Thunder general manager Will Smith, a TCNJ alumnus, said in a press release. "We look forward to working with a distinguished institution like The College Of new Jersey to bring Trenton Thunder games to even more fans over WTSR's airwaves."

Thunder games this season will be broadcast by Jay Burnham, in his second season with the team, and Hank Fuerst, who is in his first season after moving here from the Bowling Green Hot Rods. Not coincidentally, the Hot Rods are run by Brad Taylor, the team's G.M. before Smith took over.

Smith, Burnham, Fuerst, as well as team P.R. director Bill Cook and Boomer, the Thunder mascot, were on hand for the event. TCNJ was represented by its Vice President for College Relations and Advancement Matthew Golden, a former minor leaguer himself, and the school's mascot, Roscoe the Lion.
