MOOSIC – The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, the Triple-A affiliate of the New York Yankees, have announced a five-year agreement with Bold Gold Media Group to continue as the radio broadcast home of all RailRiders games.

Bold Gold Media Group will air all 144 regular-season games, all post-season games, the Triple-A All-Star game and the Triple-A Baseball National Championship Game on the multi-station network. Fans can listen on five different frequencies throughout the region: 100.7 FM (Wilkes-Barre and surrounding areas), 1340 WYCK-AM (Luzerne County), 1400 WICK-AM (Lackawanna County), 1440 WCDL-AM (Lackawanna County and Pocono Lake Region), and 106.7 FM in the Pocono Lake Region (Wayne and Pike Counties).

In addition to the over-the-air broadcast, all games will be streamed live over the Internet with links available through swbrailriders.com and boldgoldradionepa.com. Games will also be streamed through Bold Gold's mobile app.

Each broadcast will include 30-minute pre- and post-game shows. Bold Gold will also air a special 60-second RailRiders Report each weekday morning at 8:20 a.m. during the baseball season.

The RailRiders' 2013 season gets underway with the grand opening of a reconstructed PNC Field on April 4 when the defending IL champion Pawtucket Red Sox come to town for a rematch of their 2012 playoff clash with SWB.
