WMOM is proud to announce our fifth year of Ludington Orioles sports coverage. This football season our sports announcers will be Todd “Scoop” Hansen and Steve Miller.
Scoop’s familiar sidekick in the booth, Gary Castonia, will be on the “bench” due to his recently announced candidacy for mayor and FCC regulations that require equal air time be afforded to all candidates seeking the same elected position. WMOM General Manager Esther Beninati said, “We appreciate Mr. Castonia’s dedication and commitment to our sports team and to the city of Ludington. We will miss his quick wit and analysis of the Orioles. At the same time, our station does not wish to appear biased toward any political candidate and will strictly observe tried and tested FCC rules and regulations”.
Steve Miller is a graduate of Ludington High School and has an extensive business background. He has worked at WMOM since May of 2015 and was promoted to Sales Manager late last year. Mr. Miller is a fan of all Michigan sports, especially the Ludington Orioles. He said “I’m excited to fill in for Gary Castonia and to work alongside Todd Hansen”.
WMOM intends to retain Mr. Castonia in the sports analyst position once the election is over in November.
