Marquette, MI – Not too long ago Todd Paz, host of the 8th Day, decided to touch on a topic not often spoken of during this Saturday morning show. Covering sports in the U.P. for 25 years, Great Lakes Radio’s very own Todd Noordyk stepped into the studio to tackle the subject.
Starting 25 years ago, Todd Noordyk made a trip up to Manistique, MI looking to invest in a new radio station. Little did the Noordyks know, this radio station would become their first steps into covering high school sports in the U.P! Starting with Manistique and the Emeralds, Noordyk branched north and started Sunny.FM 101.9 about 7 years later. The Negaunee Miners have been with Sunny.FM and Todd Noordyk for 18 years now!
Todd Noordyk said he could not be more excited to complete yet another year with the Miners as Jesse Anderson and Brady Guilbault bring you every play of every game. Starting off the football season, the Emeralds met the Miners in Negaunee bringing Great Lakes Radio full circle. The Miners left the field at end of the night with a jaw-dropping first game, winning 54 – 0.
Six years ago now, Todd Noordyk took another step toward covering sports for the U.P. and added Ishpeming to the roster. Your local hematites also won their first football game, beating Iron Mountain 14 -7.
Bringing Great Lakes Radio a brand new station, Noordyk also signed on the Gwinn Modeltowners playing on Fox Sports Marquette 105.1 and Fox Sports Gwinn on 99.9. The Modeltowners battled the hefty Gladeston Braves for first game of 2015.
You can listen to any of our three current sports teams live on air! The games can every be streamed to your computer or smartphone, so stick with Great Lakes Radio as we bring you all the Gold and Black, White and Blue, and Gold and Navy Blue action this fall!
