WICHITA, Kan. — Today, The Sin Bin is proud to announce an extension of our broadcast partnership with the Wichita Thunder.
For the third straight season, The Sin Bin app will be home to all 72 Wichita Thunder regular-season games and all Kelly Cup Playoff games, with Jason Mals bringing you all the action in his 12th season behind the mic. Additionally, The Sin Bin app will be home to the Bruce Ramsay Coaches Show, and the exclusive streaming home for the 2020 ECHL All-Star Classic, to be played in Wichita on January 22, 2020.
Back again for a second season, The Sin Bin’s Matthew Harding and Matthew Will will host The Sin Bin Pregame Show before every Wichita Thunder game. This season, home pregame shows will start at 6:30 p.m., while road pregame shows will air 25 minutes before opening faceoff.
“We are very excited to continue our broadcast partnership with the Wichita Thunder. After a very strong second year of broadcasting games, we are looking forward to continuing that momentum into our third season,” Harding said. “We are also grateful to the Thunder and ECHL for allowing The Sin Bin to be the exclusive streaming home for the 2020 ECHL All-Star Classic. We expect to show the league’s dignitaries, partners, players, and teams the high level of professionalism and dedication to the craft that The Sin Bin has become known for.”
Last season, The Sin Bin app was home to all 72 Wichita Thunder regular-season games and saw a significant improvement from the year before. The broadcasts brought in nearly 64,000 listeners to The Sin Bin app, an average of nearly 820 per game, an increase of 17.4 percent from the 2017-18 season. On average, listeners spent 141 minutes listening to Thunder broadcasts last season, an increase of 20.5 percent from a year earlier.
“We’re excited to continue our relationship with The Sin Bin,” Mals said. “Matt and his team work tirelessly to ensure we have a solid pregame show and helps give our fans a way to listen to games, whether the team is at home or on the road. We look forward to another great season with them.”
