POTSDAM -- SUNY Potsdam and Stephens Media Group of Massena have signed a radio contract for broadcasts of the school’s sports contests for the 2013-14 season.

Bears men’s and women’s basketball and men’s ice hockey home games will be broadcast on My Mix 96.1 FM (WVLF).

The station will carry 14 men’s hockey games, 11 men’s and nine women’s basketball games, along with possible home playoff contests this year.

Out of the area fans, parents and alums can listen to My Mix 96 audio streamed over the Internet via the Bearcast or accompanying the live video stream provided through potsdambears.com.

The broadcasts start with the men’s hockey home opener against the University of New England on Nov. 2 and run through the entire winter season.

Stephens’ production manger Ryan Leroux will assume play-by-play duties. Former Potsdam coach John Horan will continue to serve as the color commentator and analyst during Bears hockey games.

My Mix 96 will also carry the induction of Potsdam’s 1996 SUNYAC ice hockey championship team into the Bears Hall of Fame prior to the start of the Nov. 2 game.
