Grizzlies to air on WXOS-FM’s digital platforms this season

The Gateway Grizzlies have partnered with St. Louis’ WXOS-FM (101.1)for the team’s radio broadcasts during the 2015 season.

The station’s digital platforms, including 101Sports.com and 101 ESPN’s mobile app, will serve as the flagship signals for the Grizzlies Radio Network as the franchise embarks on its 15th season in the Frontier League.

Sam Levitt, who enters his first season as the team’s lead broadcaster, will call all 96 regular season games on the Grizzlies Radio Network. The 23-year-old served as the team’s No. 2 broadcaster during the 2014 campaign.

The radio network also includes KJFF-AM (1400) in Festus, Mo., which has aired Grizzlies’ games since the team’s inception.KJFF-AM will once again air the majority of games in 2015.

“This situation gives the Grizzlies a terrific presence in the St. Louis sports market and it allows our fans to listen in a variety of ways,” Levitt said. “We’re thrilled to become a part of what goes on at 101 ESPN and it’s also great to have 1400 KJFF back on board,” he said.

101 ESPN’s terrestrial signal, 101.1 FM, will also carry a select number of Grizzlies’ broadcasts this upcoming season.

“101 ESPN is one of the top sports stations in St. Louis, which makes it a great fit for us,” said Steve Gomric, the Grizzlies’ general manager. “We have a very talented broadcaster in Sam Levitt and I know he will bring his ‘A’ game every broadcast.”

The Grizzlies begin the 2015 regular season may 15 against the Rockford Aviators in the friendly confines of GCS Ballpark.

Major League Baseball’s all-time hit king, Pete Rose, will be in attendance while coaching the bases for Gateway.
