Mishawaka High School and 96.1 FM have extended their broadcasting agreement through the 2022 season. “WSBT and Mid-West Family Broadcasting are incredible to work with,” said Mishawaka Director of Athletics Dean Huppert. “Fans in Mishawaka and around the world can listen live to our big games. It’s the next best thing to being there when you hear 96.1 FM on Mishawaka Network’s YouTube channel. It’s also great for our MHSTV students to work with the pros.” Live broadcasts can be found on WSBTRadio.com and CavemenSports.com.
96.1 FM and the Cavemen started working together in 2017 broadcasting all MHS football and home boys basketball events. The new deal will keep those, while adding more hoops, including selected events on the road and some girls games. “It’s exciting that we’re extending our partnership,” said the voice of Mishawaka, Sean Stires. “Over the last two years, we have been able to be a part of the on-field and on-court successes of Cavemen athletic teams. More importantly, we have been able to build relationships with the coaches and athletes and tell their stories. I’m thrilled those relationships will continue.”
An important part of this deal includes “Cavemen Corner”. The show highlighting Mishawaka Sports begins it’s third season this Fall. Bill Gamble, Director of Programming for Mid-West Family Broadcasting said, “Serving the community is what Mid-West Family radio is all about. Part of the fabric of our community is High School Sports. That’s why we’re thrilled to extend this successful partnership.”
