CHML adds Marauders football to broadcast schedule


A new team is joining McMaster University sports this fall.

AM900 CHML radio has signed a three-year radio agreement with Mac to broadcast all Marauders home and away football games, with pre- and post-game shows as well as a weekly, one-hour McMaster Athletics and Recreation Magazine show.

Quarterbacking the broadcast crew will be CHML broadcaster Ted Michaels with the play-by-play while McMaster former defensive coordinator and Canadian Football League player Joe Sardo will handle the colour commentary. The Magazine show will profile McMaster teams, programs, coaches and student athletes.

“AM900 CHML provides an excellent opportunity for McMaster Athletics and Recreation to showcase our programs and recognize our coaches and student-athletes,” said the university’s athletic director, Therese Quigley in a press release. “We look forward to this new and exciting partnership.”

McMaster will kick off the Ontario University Athletics football season on Monday, Sept. 3, at 2 p.m. against Wilfrid Laurier at University Stadium in Kitchener. The football games will also be heard online at www.900chml.com

McMaster’s radio station, CFMU 93.3, will continue to broadcast football games. In additions, the campus outlet will broadcast Marauders basketball games.
