We have some great commentators on board and can bring our unique local offering to the commentaries to really give local fans what they want.”
Wolves’ CEO Jez Moxey added: “We are pleased that Signal 107 have agreed a deal to become our official commercial broadcast partner for the next three years, and are looking forward to renewing the working relationship we enjoyed with the station almost a decade ago. I am sure supporters will enjoy their coverage of our fixtures, and that it will be another exciting season.”
Signal 107 is currently facing competition for its Telford licence from Fusion Radio.
