Phantoms add to staff
09/14/05 - American Hockey League (AHL) Philadelphia Phantoms

 
PHILADELPHIA - The Philadelphia Phantoms today officially announced an addition to the American Hockey League (AHL) organization. Mike Thornton was named the Director of Public Relations.

Thornton comes to Philadelphia from a similar post with the Worcester IceCats. For six seasons, he handled the public relations and broadcasting duties for the Blues' AHL affiliate. Prior to the IceCats, the SUNY Fredonia graduate spent two seasons with the Binghamton, NY based BC Icemen of the United Hockey League (UHL) and one with the Dayton Ice Bandits of the then Colonial Hockey League (CoHL). The 36-year old began his career in his home state of Maine as the Director of Broadcasting for the Portland Sea Dogs during their inaugural season in the AA Eastern League (EL). Baseball led to his involvement in the cross-town hockey team, the Portland Pirates, and eventually a move to Dayton.

Phantoms ink deal with WIP


Sportsradio 610 WIP and the Philadelphia Phantoms announced on Friday that the station will air a selection of games over the air and via the internet during the 2005-06 season, the first time in franchise history that the Phantoms will be heard on Philadelphia radio.

In addition to the broadcast of the defending Calder Cup champions' season opener against Binghamton on Oct. 8, WIP will air one additional Phantoms broadcast on their radio signal later in the season. All other Phantoms hockey games being broadcast by WIP will be featured on the station's internet audio stream at www.610wip.com. WIP is also the exclusive broadcast rights holder for the Philadelphia 76ers and Philadelphia Flyers.

Tim Saunders, the voice of the Flyers, will provide play-by-play commentary for all of WIP's Phantoms hockey broadcasts on its radio signal. Mike Thornton, who has joined the Phantoms after six seasons as the voice of the Worcester IceCats, will provide the play-by-play for all internet audio stream broadcasts.

Nineteen games are currently scheduled to be cybercast on WIP's Web site. For more information, visit phantomshockey.com.
