If you’re a die-hard sports fan, you’ll love listening to 106.9 WOOD Radio in Ann Arbor, MI. The station broadcasts games from the University of Michigan Wolverines football and basketball teams, along with Michigan Griffins hockey. This means you’ll hear live game replays, call-in shows, and much more.
University of Michigan Wolverines football and basketball
The University of Michigan Wolverines are 3-1 in conference play and have won two straight games. Head coach Juwan Howard has tweaked his lineup combinations.
Jamal Murray is one of the top players in the country. He is a long scorer, and has a knack for shooting from any spot on the floor. It’s tough to play against him.
Dickinson has two All-Big Ten performances under his belt. He shot 56.3 percent from the field and made 32.8 percent of his three-point attempts last season. His 2.3 assists per game are up a bit from his 1.2 per game in the previous year.
Terrance Williams II is a junior forward who played in 52 contests last season. In that time, he averaged 4.7 points and 2.4 rebounds per game.
Michigan has seven scholarship newcomers. They include Hunter Dickinson, Terrance Williams II, and Jaelin Llewellyn. Each of these three players is expected to play a key role in the team’s success this season.
Michigan Griffins hockey
The Michigan Griffins are slated to be one of the top teams in the AHL this season. They are led by an impressive roster of players. Among them are Robbie Russo and Richard Nedomlel, who will make their pro debuts this year. They have a solid D corps as well. And with Tomas Nosek returning after suffering a broken leg, this team looks to be the team to beat in the Central Division.
With the help of their new television contract, fans will be able to catch their favorite hockey team on WOOD 106.9 FM, WDFN 1130 AM, and WXSP-TV. Not only will their games be streamed live, but they will also be shown in high definition. This is the largest television package in the Griffins history. It will also allow the Griffins to become part of the Michigan Sports Network, which is aiming to become the best sports network in the Midwest.
Bob Kaser, who has been the team’s play-by-play announcer since 1984, will return for another season. He has been with the team for thirteen seasons, and was awarded the Ellery Award for excellence in radio broadcasting in 2009.
In addition to televising Grand Rapids Griffins games, WOOD TV8 and WXSP-TV will carry the team’s 2022-23 regular season games. These broadcasts will be simulcast on the team’s flagship radio station and will be available to listeners in the state of Michigan.
