MES will televise a minimum of 40 Griffins games -- including a minimum of 10 home games -- during each of the next three seasons. All games will be shown live in HD and will be available through an expanding network in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana.
This agreement with MES represents the most significant television package by far in Griffins history and the team's first of any kind since the 2008-09 season. With the exception of the Chicago Wolves, no current AHL team will have as many of its 2014-15 games produced specifically for broadcast television as Grand Rapids.
The Griffins' 40-plus TV games will be determined following the release of the AHL schedule in August. The television broadcasts will be simulcast on the team's radio flagship, Newsradio WOOD 106.9 FM/1300 AM, and feature the play-by-play of the award-winning Bob Kaser, who will begin his 15th season as the Voice of the Griffins this fall. Color analysts for the telecasts will be announced at a later date.
Griffins Hockey is the first major sports property to partner with MES, a Wixom, Mich.-based network that will launch this fall on cable providers throughout the three-state region. MES aims to be the Midwest's complete sports network, covering minor league, collegiate and high school sports, plus delivering its own high-quality original content.
