Jets, MRSN form broadcast agreement

The Metro Jets have announced an agreement with the Michigan Regional Sports Network (MRSN) to broadcast select home games online this season, starting with Saturday’s game against the Queen City Steam.

“The Michigan Regional Sports Network is expanding their scope to include hockey and when they contacted us, it was an easy decision,” Jets GM Butch Wolfe said. “We think this coverage can be nothing but great publicity for our team and the Central States Hockey League and we are very excited and looking forward to Saturday night.”

Metro Jets games to be broadcast by MRSN:

Sat. Oct. 11 vs. Queen City
Sat. Oct. 18 vs. Grand Rapids
Sun. Nov. 2 vs. Cleveland
Sun. Dec. 14 vs. Motor City
Sat. Jan. 10, 2009 vs. Flint
Sat. Jan. 31, 2009 vs. Flint

The MRSN, based in Flint since 2004, broadcasts the high school football game of the week, as well as college club hockey and high school basketball and baseball. Next spring, MRSN will be the exclusive home for the Michigan Admirals minor league football team.

"We were looking to branch out from broadcasting just football and junior hockey is the next step up," MRSN play-by-play broadcaster Bill Schnorenberg said. "We are happy to be involved with a quality program like the Metro Jets."
