Hersam Acorn Radio, the online voice of the New Canaan Advertiser and other Hersam Acorn Newspapers and websites, continues its live coverage of southwestern Connecticut high school sports this week, including two New Canaan games.
Basketball makes its debut on Hersam Acorn Radio, which can be heard on NCAdvertiser.com and other Hersam Acorn websites, with the New Canaan boys basketball game against Fairfield Warde on Friday, Jan. 10, at 6:50 p.m.
Then on Saturday afternoon, Hersam Acorn Radio will bring you live play-by-play of the New Canaan-Darien boys hockey ice hockey at 3:40 p.m.
Hersam Acorn Radio debuted with live play-by-play of the FCIAC football championship between New Canaan and St. Joseph’s in late November. Since then, Hersam Acorn Radio covered several state football playoff games, including the New Canaan-Darien state championship game. In December, the crew started covering ice hockey around the region.
Hersam Acorn Radio also featured eight hours of live coverage of the Thursday-Friday, Jan. 2-3, snow storm, which shut down much of the area on Friday morning.
The radio broadcasts are led by lead announcer Rob Adams, who is joined by analysts that include John Kovach, Paul Silverfarb and Chris Kaelin. New Canaan Advertiser editor Josh Fisher provides news and score updates during most broadcasts.
Hersam Acorn Newspapers’ sports editors also join Adams in the booth to talk about the teams and other upcoming games in southwestern Connecticut.
