Brian Danner does radio coverage of Lewis-Clark State baseball, and all games of the NAIA Baseball National Championsip, for KOZE, 950 AM in Lewiston, ID. All games are webcast by KOZE. Here’s an interview with Brian:

Bob Broughton: How long has Lewis-Clark State had radio coverage of their games?

Brian Danner: KOZE-AM has been following the Lewis-Clark State program for the better part of three decades. Gene Hamblin and Mike Ripley were and are the pioneers of the broadcasts. They saw early on the interest in L-C baseball and were able to convince sponsors that the product would be good business for them – it was, and in my opinion, still is. Lewiston has always been a baseball town. Very educated fans with a high baseball IQ. The late Dwight Church built a powerhouse legion program that still is among the best in the state on an annual basis. Kids become involved with the game at a very early age, and for the most part stick with it into adulthood, whether as fans or softball all-stars. Continue reading
