Also with the new agreement, WLKM gains the rights to be the on-air home for the Kalamazoo Wings Weekly Coaches Show, “K-Wings Live." This season the show will originate on Monday’s from 7-8 p.m. from the newly-renovated Old Burdick’s Bar and Grill, located inside the Holiday Inn West off of South 11th Street. The season debut of “K-Wings Live” will be Monday, October 8.

“We are excited to continue our relationship with WLKM. Their station has a strong signal that can reach 11 counties, giving us the ability to promote ourselves throughout Southwest Michigan ,” said Wings GM Wade Welsh. “With the unlimited number of audio listeners the B2 Network has, our fans will be able to log on to every K-Wings audio broadcast without the worries of not being able to listen to our games, a problem we had with our previous audio streaming provider.”
