WMGK RADIO HOST RAY KOOB TO SERVE AS PHILADELPHIA WINGS IN-ARENA HOST FOR 2014 SEASON
The Philadelphia Wings of the National Lacrosse League (NLL) announced today that WMGK Radio Host Ray Koob will serve as the In-Arena Host during the 2014 season. In his role as In-Arena Host, Koob will involve fans in promotions during game time-outs as well as entertain and energize supporters in attendance. Ray will work alongside long time Philadelphia Wings Public Address Announcer Kevin Casey, who has been with the team since 2002.
Koob has been serving the Philadelphia area with classic rock for over a decade as nighttime host of "In The Nighttime". A native of the Delaware Valley, Koob is a Philadelphia radio veteran as he has been broadcasting with WMGK since 2002. Prior his time at WMGK, Koob served as an on-air personality for sister station WMMR.
“We are excited to have Ray Koob as a part of the Philadelphia Wings organization. His knowledge for the sport of lacrosse and the city of Philadelphia make him the perfect addition to our in-arena game presentation,” said Director of Marketing and Game Presentation Nikki Varoutsos. “We appreciate his enthusiasm and dynamic personality he uses to connect with our fans.”
The Wings return most of their top performers in 2014, including Captain Brodie Merrill (10G, 16A, 123LB), forward Kevin Crowley (34G, 38A) and goaltender Brandon Miller (12.12 GAA). Last season Miller was named to the NLL All-Pro Team.
