As first heard on the May 30th edition of Capitals Report with Mike Vogel, John Walton announced that the Bears will be heard on XM Sattelite Radio Channel 204 as well as XM Canada. From the Bears website:
The American Hockey League announced today that XM Satellite Radio and XM Canada will be carrying Games 1, 5, 6 and 7 of the 2007 Calder Cup Final on their all-hockey Home Ice channel 204.
The BEARS Radio Network will provide the feed for all four games, with John Walton calling the action. Grady Whittenburg, voice of the Binghamton Senators, will join John for Game 1 of the series, with ABC-27 Sports Director Gregg Mace joining Walton on the call in Game 5 should the game be necessary.
XM contractual obligations with the National Hockey League and their coverage of the Stanley Cup Finals precludes them from airing games 2, 3, and 4 of the AHL Finals.
For those that do not have XM, you can always listen to John Walton’s excellent call of the Bears online at PennLive.com.
