Bison Sports, in conjunction with Campus Radio 101.5 UMFM, is pleased to announce the return of Bison Football to the radio airwaves for the full 2008 season. UMFM will be the exclusive location to listen to all the home and away action of Bison Football during the upcoming year.
This will be the ninth consecutive season for Bison Football on 101.5 FM. For the upcoming campaign, the radio broadcast team returns from the past two seasons with Derek Taylor handing play-by-play and former Bison Matt Rollason performing colour commentary for the second consecutive season. In addition, for the home games there will be a third announcer as former Bison and 2007 Vanier Cup MVP Mike Howard will be reporting on the sidelines to provide in-sight and valuable perspective from field level.
“We are obviously happy to have Bison Football back at UMFM for an ninth season. We are pleased to offer all games on the airwaves and through the Internet plus offer our continued commitment to Bison Football,” said Jared McKetiak, UMFM Station Manager.
Derek Taylor is a long-time sports fanatic with a wealth of broadcasting experience. He spent four years with Citytv Winnipeg and is currently at Fox Sports World. A former team captain, Rollason played football with the Bisons from 1997-2001. Since then, he coached linebackers with Winnipeg Rifles Junior Football Club and the Bisons. The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service currently employs him.
For all road games, there will be a 15 minute pre-game show while there is a 30 minute pre-game show for all home games.
