After a meeting one year ago and some discussions that revived over the past two weeks, I’m happy to announce that yours truly (yes, Josh Nason) will be hosting The MMA Minute on Southern New Hampshire-based WGAM, an ESPN sports radio affiliate that airs on 900 AM in Nashua and 1250 AM in Manchester.
Every week, I’ll be recording 60 seconds of fresh MMA news (results, upcoming events, etc) that will air from Wednesday – Saturday multiple times every day. We are looking for sponsors for a 30-second ad to accompany the spots, so if interested, contact me and we’ll go from there.
The station has been around for years and airs a mix of local talk and ESPN programming along with the Boston Red Sox, Boston Bruins, the Manchester Monarchs and high school sports. This is their first official foray in the world of mixed martial arts and I’m psyched to be the one to kick things off.
The spots will begin this week, so tune in and listen for my magical voice. If you’re driving, resist the urge to pull over and if you’re at work, you might want to get up and dance.
In all seriousness, this is a great opportunity for me and I can’t thank WGAM enough for throwing me the ball. This could evolve in a few different ways, but for now, I’m going to lock in on providing the best content I can to the listeners every week. If I can educate some non-MMA fans along the way into what the sport is, that’s awesome.
If I can help convert some to our side, even better.
