The Indy Fuel and WXNT-1430 announced Tuesday that the radio station will broadcast the inaugural season of the Indy Fuel schedule.
All games — preseason, regular season and postseason — will be broadcast either on WXNT AM 1430 or online at WXNT.com. At least 54 of the regular-season broadcasts will be live, with the rest either tape-delayed or available live via the Internet.
Tony Brown, the Fuel’s media relations director, will handle the team’s radio play-by-play. A 2010 graduate of Syracuse University, Brown comes to the Fuel from the USHL’s Omaha Lancers, where he handled a similar media relations/play-by-play role.
The Fuel return to a frequency that was the home of the IHL’s Indianapolis Ice in the 1990s under the call letters WMyS.
Earlier, the Fuel announced all 36 home games will be televised on either RTV-6 or HTSN-6.2. Jim Mirabello will handle the Fuel’s television play-by-play.
