The unveiling of the new program, the first of its kind for an Atlantic League franchise, was announced today by WOYK General Manager and broadcaster Darrell Henry, in conjunction with the York Revolution.
“Revs Hot Stove Weekly” promises to be appointment listening for Revs fans, as the only place to first learn of the latest player signings for the 2015 season, which will be unveiled one-by-one on each show. Henry will be joined in-studio by 2014 Atlantic League Manager of the Year, Mark Mason, as hosts of the one-hour weekly program. Mason enters his third season as Revs manager in 2015.
“Our fans are some of the most passionate in minor league baseball, and we’re very excited to create a new program with our fans in mind, where we literally unveil breaking news on their favorite team every week,” said Henry. “Seeing the team come together as players are signed during the preseason is always a fun time, and to now have this brand new radio show devoted to the topic is going to be a lot of fun.”
Other planned elements of the show include fan interaction through both WOYK and York Revolution social media, player interviews, analysis with Mason, and a roundup of news from around the Atlantic League. Video archives of each program will be posted on WOYK1350.com.
