Ignite Radio is proud to announce their partnership with TSN 1150 to bring you “The TSN 1150 Top Prospects Radio Show” every Tuesday at 5 PM on Ignite Radio.

Mike Nabuurs, Program Director for TSN 1150 says, “TSN 1150 is very proud to work with Mohawk College on this new program. As Hamilton’s all sports radio station we are very interested in helping develop future talent and specifically, future sports broadcasters. We are working closely with the Radio Broadcasting course at Mohawk to identify students who have a desire to get into sports radio and TV and to help them develop the skills that are specific to sports broadcasting.”

Mr. Nabuurs goes on to explain that, “This year we have found five students and we are now working with them to develop a one-hour sports radio show. Launching earlier this month on Ignite Radio, it is our goal to improve their skills and then move the show to TSN 1150 this spring. Each student will take turns in different roles on the show so they can improve their overall skills.”

He finished by saying that, “This partnership will only grow and will lead to an actual sports course being offered by Mohawk as part of their Radio Broadcasting program.”
