590 The Fan Provides a Win for Lindenwood Academics and Athletics

Lindenwood University will elevate its men’s ice hockey season to a new level thanks to a partnership with local sports radio station 590 The Fan.

This hockey season, 590 The Fan will cover ten of Lindenwood men’s ice hockey home and away games in live broadcast. In addition, several of the games will also be broadcast on Lindenwood’s own radio station, KCLC.

“This partnership with 590 The Fan elevates the Lindenwood University student experience in several ways, and we are thrilled about this opportunity,” said Lindenwood President Dr. John Porter. “This is a win for both Lindenwood academics and athletics, and a tremendous example of how Lindenwood puts students first.”

In this mutually beneficial partnership, 590 The Fan will elevate the talents of Lindenwood students on a larger scale. Lindenwood’s men’s ice hockey program will gain airtime for ten games, both home and away. While the students on the ice will be highlighted for their athletic talents, students from the University interested in sports broadcasting will have opportunities to participate in the game broadcasts, serving as commentators and production assistants.

“Lindenwood hockey is the only division one program in the region and now Coach Rick Zombo’s Lions will have a professional broadcast deal,” said Award-winning sportscaster Bob Ramsey. “Nate Lucas is a great choice as the Lions’ play-by-play voice and will also provide leadership as the mentor to the next group of Lindenwood broadcasters.” Ramsey, a major player in the agreement, is a proud Lindenwood alum and was essential in the foundation of KCLC radio.

590 The Fan Director of Operations Jim Heuer, also a Lindenwood graduate, looks forward to what lies ahead. "We are very excited to continue the growing partnership with Lindenwood University and 590 The Fan," Heuer said.

The first game scheduled for broadcast on 590 The Fan will take place Saturday, October 7, at Air Force, with puck drop at 6:05 p.m. CT. Additional games scheduled for broadcast are Ohio State, St. Thomas, Michigan, Western Michigan, Arizona State, Stone Hill, and a two-game series against Alaska-Anchorage.
