Wisconsin Herd Broadcast Partners

By msteinberg | November 3, 2017

Wisconsin Herd fans can listen to all 50 of the team’s games during the 2017-18 season on 99.1 FM The Score in Oshkosh and 95.3 FM in the Fox Cities. Fans also can watch 21 Herd home games on MYNEW32, the team’s official TV broadcast partner. The station will carry 21 Herd home games, starting with the team’s official Home Opener in Oshkosh on Friday, Dec. 1.

Justin Hull and Ted Stefaniak will serve as the broadcast team for the Bucks’ NBA G League affiliate. Games will be simulcast on The Score, MYNEW32 and via Facebook Live.

“We are excited to partner with The Score and MYNEW32 to ensure fans can listen and watch Wisconsin Herd games throughout the Fox Valley and surrounding communities,” said Herd President Steve Brandes. “Justin and Ted are two well-known broadcasters in Northeastern Wisconsin. We’re fortunate to have them on our team and are confident fans will enjoy their broadcasts throughout our inaugural season.”

A member of the Milwaukee Bucks Radio Network, The Score is a radio station dedicated to sports, licensed to Appleton, Wisconsin. The Score serves the Fox Cities with FM 95.3 and recently introduced an additional frequency to serve the Oshkosh area — FM 99.1. The station is owned by Woodward Communications.

“We are pleased that the Wisconsin Herd chose Oshkosh as its home,” said Woodward Radio Group General Manager Kelly Radandt. “Woodward Radio Group, in particular 99.1 FM The Score Oshkosh, looks forward to our partnership and bringing Herd games to our communities.”

MYNEW32 is the place for local sports in Northeast Wisconsin. MYNEW32 first signed on the air in 1984 as independent WXGZ. Journal Communications purchased the station in 2012, creating a duopoly with WGBA. In April 2015 it became a member of the E.W. Scripps family.

“We are very excited to partner with the Wisconsin Herd,” said Peter Marquardt, Vice President and General Manager of NBC26 and MYNEW32. “Viewers in Northeast Wisconsin love live sports and MYNEW32 is uniquely suited to bring the action into their homes.”

Justin Hull is the brand manager and sports broadcaster for WHBY-TV and The Score radio with Woodward Radio Group in Appleton. Hull has hosted a daily sports talk show and has been a play-by-play voice for local sports on both radio and video streams since 2008. He is the current host of “In the Huddle,” a statewide radio program focused on the Green Bay Packers. Hull also has worked with WGBA/WACY-TV in Green Bay calling games for the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers and local high school sports. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh in 2004.

Ted Stefaniak brings 29 years of broadcast experience to the Herd, including 15 seasons with the WIAA State Basketball Network. Stefaniak called play-by-play for Northeast Wisconsin’s “Sports Showdown” on MYNEW32 WACY-TV from 2011-2017. He moved to Green Bay in 2002 and has provided the call for hundreds of local sporting events including high school basketball, football, the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers and college basketball games. Stefaniak previously served as the sports director at WGBA-TV and WAOW-TV. He is a graduate of Creighton University and started his broadcast career at KKAR radio and KPTM-TV in Omaha.
