The Albany Empire will have all 12 of their Arena Football League games televised by MY4 (WNYA) this season. The first broadcast is Saturday, when the Empire host the Columbus Destroyers from Times Union Center at 7 p.m.
“Having all of our Empire games broadcast on regional television is such a great step for not only our team, but our League as well,” George Manias, C.O.O. of the Empire, said in a statement. “Our fans can now easily follow us when we are on the road, or when they cannot come in person and that will help us enlarge our following. This will help us expand our reach and hopefully create even more Empire and AFL fans.”
Brent Harris will call the play-by-play, JJ Raternik is the analyst and Meredith Gorman is the sideline reporter.
WQSH-FM (105.7) will be the radio home of the Empire again this season. AJ Kanell calls the action, with Pete Porcelli as the analyst.
