Alma College Director of Athletics Steven Rackley has announced that the school and WQBX-FM (Alma) have entered into a partnership that will have Alma’s coaches appear on a weekly radio show and WQBX broadcasting home events.
“We’re thrilled to be working closely with WQBX,” said Rackley. “It allows us to expand our reach in the community and helps out a station with which we’ve had ties for a while.”
“WQBX is thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with Alma College,” said Jeff Sommerville, Vice-President of the station and host of the Coaches Show. “This will help bring the excitement of Alma College Athletics to Scots fans both locally and worldwide.”
The station has aired the “Alma Coaches Show” from Pizza One in downtown Alma at 7:15 p.m. every Wednesday for the last three weeks.
In addition, WQBX will add to Alma’s webcasts of its home events. Sommerville will appear on Alma’s football and men’s basketball live streams as a color commentator alongside Topher Goggin. The audio feed will also be distributed on-air and streamed through the WQBX website.
