WIU Graduate is New Burlington Bees Announcer

It may still be freezing cold outside, but maybe a reminder that baseball season is just around the corner will warm you up.

The Burlington Bees have announced their new radio broadcaster for the 2014 season. Michael Broskowski, who graduated from Western Illinois University last May, feels his experience will serve the Bees well.

“I spent the last two seasons in the Northwoods League up in Minnesota for the Rochester Honkers. I’ve also done women’s basketball at Western Illinois University. I worked for their baseball team as well. Prior to that, I worked up in the Alaska League and I interned for the Cedar Rapids Kernels.”

This will be his first non-intern announcer position.

For the past few years now, the Bees have had to search for a new announcer each season. Broskowski, who is originally from Jefferson, Wisconsin, told us today that he hopes he’ll be able to stick around a little longer.

The Burlington Bees baseball season officially kicks off April 3rd in Beloit.
