Urbandale (IA) Des Moines Buccaneer fans will have a familiar place to tune into when looking to stay connected to their team in 2013-2014. 940AM KPSZ will once again serve as the team’s radio broadcast home this season, carrying a majority of the games live and serving as the flagship to a multi-platform broadcast network.
Game coverage will begin with an extensive 30-minute pregame show and conclude with an in-depth postgame show. Additionally, all home games will include the “Scoreboard Show” featuring comments from head coach Jon Rogger, a popular feature for fans on their way home from the game.
940AM will also serve as the radio home for the weekly “Bucs Talk Live” which will air from The Other Place on University Avenue in Clive on Tuesdays from 6pm-7pm beginning September 24th and feature interviews with coaches and players.
KPSZ’s radio broadcasts will also be available on mobile phones via the TuneIN radio app, which can be downloaded for free on most smart phones.
“Radio is still the most convenient way for fans to listen to any game but listening on a smart phone is rapidly gaining ground” said Buccaneers’ radio broadcaster Scott Montesano. “In the next three years, listening to a game on a smart phone will be a normal part of everyday life.”
Games will continue to be streamed online at praise940.com and fans will also continue to have the ability to watch games via the pay-per-view service FastHockey.com
KPSZ is part of the Des Moines Radio Group and in addition to the Buccaneers is also Central Iowa’s home to the Green Bay Packers, the Iowa Cubs and high school sports.
Scott Montesano returns for his fifth season at the microphone for the Buccaneers. The Utica, NY native came to the Buccaneers having already covered minor league hockey and baseball in multiple areas including Maine, Vermont, North Dakota and Wisconsin. During the off-season he serves as the radio broadcaster for the Northwoods League’s Waterloo Bucks.
