The Florida Everblades announced this week that that WRXK-FM (K-Rock, 96.1 FM) is the exclusive radio home for Florida Everblades hockey broadcasts this season.

96 K-Rock will broadcast 69 of the team’s 72 regular season games during the 2012-13 season.

“We are thrilled to finally be on the FM dial, especially with Beasley Broadcasting and the 100,000-watt 96 K-Rock station,” said Everblades president & general manager Craig Brush. “This will give our fans the opportunity to listen to Everblades games throughout our whole marketplace.”

96 K-Rock is based in Estero and serves the Fort Myers, Naples, and Marco Island area.

“The Beasley Broadcast Group has been a fervent supporter of the Florida Everblades since its inaugural year in Southwest Florida,” said Beasley VP Brad Beasley. “We are happy to be broadcasting the 2012-13 season on our 100,000-watt FM signal, WRXK-FM, 96Krock, Talk that Rocks!”

Last season Everblades games were broadcast on ESPN 770 AM, also owned by Beasley Broadcasting.

Alex Reed returns for his second season as the Blades play-by-play announcer. Fans also can listen to the games online by accessing the proper links provided on the 96 K-Rock Website and at www.floridaeverblades.com.

The Everblades open their 15th anniversary season at Germain Arena on Friday, Oct. 12 against the Orlando Solar Bears. The two teams also meet the week prior in a pair of preseason exhibition games played at Germain Arena on Oct. 5 and 6.

Individual game tickets are available at the arena box office.
