The Vancouver Giants and Sportsnet 650 are excited to announce that they have partnered with Spice Radio AM 1200 and ITMB Productions to ensure that all regular season and playoff games are made available on live radio in the Lower Mainland. On nights when Vancouver Giants games conflict with Vancouver Canucks matchups, Sportsnet 650’s Giants broadcasts will be available live on Spice Radio AM 1200 and online.
“It was important to us to provide our fan-base with the most exposure possible to our games and our brand,” said Giants VP Operation and Assistant General Manager, Peter Toigo. “We are excited that Spice Radio AM 1200 has joined forces with Sportsnet 650 and the Vancouver Giants to make this a reality.”
“The Vancouver Giants are one of Canada’s most successful junior hockey franchises and we are looking forward to showcasing their high-caliber, world-class hockey on Spice Radio,” adds Spice Radio General Manager/Program Director Sudhir Datta. “This is a first for the Lower Mainland and we are committed to providing extensive promotion and coverage of the Vancouver Giants via our radio, video and social media platforms.”
Spice Radio AM 1200 is a Multi-Cultural radio station that caters to the South Asian community. Their first live Vancouver Giants broadcast will take place on Saturday, September 22nd when the Vancouver Giants visit the Everett Silvertips. Games carried on Spice Radio will include pre-game, in-game and post-game coverage courtesy of the Giants broadcast team of Dan O’Connor, Bill Wilms and Dave Sheldon.
