The Portland Winterhawks and News Talk 860 KPAM agreed to terms on a multi-year deal to continue carrying all of the team’s regular season and playoff games live on the legendary radio station.
Once again Todd Vrooman will bring listeners the play-by-play at all games, with analyst Andy Kemper joining him for all home games and select road games. News Talk 860 KPAM has been the team’s flagship radio station since 2012.
“We’re excited to continue our partnership with News Talk 860 KPAM,” said Portland Winterhawks President Doug Piper. “We’ve received nothing but positive feedback from our fans about having News Talk 860 KPAM as our dedicated radio home.”
“Portland is a great hockey town, and News Talk 860 KPAM is thrilled to be able to continue our relationship with the Portland Winterhawks. Go Hawks!” said News Talk 860 KPAM Program Director Mike Dirkx.
As part of the deal, the popular radio show Hawkey Talk will return, featuring venerable Portland radio personality Ron Callan interviewing coaches, players, broadcasters and WHL experts every Monday from 6 – 7 p.m. during the season.
