ICEHOGS RENEW TV AGREEMENT WITH WIFR

By: Nate Haeni

Rockford, Ill. – The Rockford IceHogs, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the 2013 Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks, have renewed their television broadcast agreement with Gray Television, Inc. (23-WIFR).

The agreement extends the local broadcast of IceHogs hockey on WIFR’s Antenna TV, 23.2, through the 2014-15 season. Last season marked the first time that all 76 regular season games, along with the AHL All-Star Classic, were broadcast live on television in the Rockford area.

"Our partnership with WIFR has been an integral part of growing the IceHogs brand and footprint,” said RAVE Executive Director Gordon Kaye. “It was great watching every game last season, home and away, live on Antenna TV and we are excited to bring IceHogs fans live TV coverage for the next two seasons.”

Antenna TV will again carry all 76 regular season games on the IceHogs 2013-14 season slate. Antenna TV is also available to all Comcast Cable subscribers in the Rockford market (channel 436), along with Charter Cable (channel 970) and Mediacom (channel 101) subscribers around the area.  Check your local listings or contact your service provider to get Antenna TV.

The voice of the IceHogs, Mike Peck, will bring the action to viewers as he returns for his 12th season in the broadcast booth. The first telecast for the IceHogs, in their 15th season of professional hockey and 7th in the AHL, is pending the release of the full AHL schedule which will be announced in mid-August.
