Longtime radio voice Mike Stubbs will serve as the play-by-play commentator for the London Knights on AM980 beginning with the 2016-2017 season.
The announcement was made Monday morning on ‘The Craig Needles Show’ on AM980.
“We have so many different ideas on how things are going to be covered throughout the season and a lot of new fresh changes,” said Stubbs.
Stubbs has a long standing history with the team. He first began broadcasting games in 1995 and continued on until 1998 when he moved out west. Stubbs rejoined the London Knights broadcast team in 2000 when Mark and Dale Hunter bought the team.
“We are excited to be starting a new chapter with AM980 and their broadcast team,” said London Knights Owner and President, Dale Hunter.
“Knights fans across the Greater London Area will continue to have great coverage of the team throughout Southwestern Ontario.”
Late last month, Corus Radio London announced AM980 has entered into a five year agreement to be the official broadcaster of the London Knights starting in the 2016-2017 season.
The reigning Memorial Cup champs will kickoff the season on the road when they visit the Sarnia Sting on Sept. 21.
