Former Press sports editor and radio broadcaster Rick Waldron has been developing a gig with Cardinal Stritch graduate Mike Jamieson and to broadcast Genoa football and basketball games via streaming Internet audio.

"The latest big thing in radio is streaming audio, where people can listen to anything on the Internet," Waldron said. "Mike has this set-up where he is airing all the Clay and Stritch ball games. He wanted somebody to come along and do Genoa. We're all independent contractors. It's up to me to sell the advertising for the Genoa games. We have at least a three-game window for Genoa - two more regular-season games and at least one playoff game. I'm going to do play-by-play and Jeff Norwalk is going to do analysis.
"If it goes well and the sponsors respond to it, we'll be doing boys and girls basketball. We're both Genoa grads, so we're a couple of Genoa guys doing Genoa sports for Genoa people. The first game will be Friday night (Oct. 17)."

Norwalk's radio experience includes doing a boxing show with local trainer/promoter Harry Cummins on WCWA. Norwalk said he is excited about working with Waldron on Genoa broadcasts.

"He's got many years of experience," Norwalk said. "We're both GHS grads and I've known him through attending Genoa games and working with him at the Press. I'm definitely pumped, because when I went to Bowling Green I concentrated on broadcasting, and working with Harry was a great time.

"Covering Genoa sports is going to be great. I think the chemistry will be pretty good. I've never worked with Rick in the radio angle, but I know he's got a terrific radio voice and a lot of years behind the mic."
