In addition to the games the Ads also have a weekly one hour radio show, entitled Milwaukee Admirals Center Ice, which airs every Monday during the hockey season from 6:00 pm until 7:00 pm.
"We are very pleased to have the opportunity to continue our relationship with Sports Radio 1250 WSSP," said Turer. "They have done an outstanding job of delivering first-class broadcasts and also helping to promote Admirals hockey in the process."
WSSP is Milwaukee's home for local sports talk personalities Doug Russell, Mike Wickett, Steve "Sparky" Fifer, Josh Vernier, Gary Ellerson, and Tim Allen as well as national talents Jim Rome and Dan Patrick. The station also serves as Milwaukee's outlet for select University of Wisconsin Basketball, Milwaukee Bucks, and Milwaukee Brewers' games.
"We are very pleased to renew our relationship with the Admirals" Kirshbom said. "They continue to provide Milwaukee Hockey fans with one of the best entertainment values in the region!"
