With the 2012-2013 college basketball season well underway, fans are trying to stay as informed and involved with the game as possible. For lucky Colonial Athletic Association fans, two CAA coaches have set to the airwaves to add another element to the media coverage of their teams.
Both Towson men’s basketball head coach Pat Skerry and UNCW men’s basketball head coach Buzz Peterson will be appearing on weekly school-run radio shows.
Skerry will appear on the “Pat Skerry Coaches Show” on WBAL-AM 1090 every week this season. The show, which is hosted by Brett Hollander, will recap the previous week’s action and look forward to the upcoming week during the it’s thirty minutes of air time. The program will usually be broadcast on either Wednesday or Friday. Skerry will also join “Tiger Talk” on the Towson Sports Network every Thursday. Each episode of Skerry’s coaching show will begin airing at 8PM.
Down in Wilmington, Peterson will be a weekly radio personality as well. The Seahawks coach will be heard on the “The Buzz Peterson Radio Call-In Show” on Sunny 104.5 FM. Fans will be able to call in and ask Peterson questions about their team. Mike Vaccaro, the radio voice of the Seahawks, will host the show.
As both Towson and UNCW look to improve this season from 2011-2012, their coaches’ weekly radio appearances will hopefully chronicle successful seasons for two improving ball clubs.
