Blarney Stone Broadcasting and Sinclair Broadcasting have partnered to provide weather updates on WLDR-FM/WARD-AM, WQON-FM/WQAN-FM and WBNZ-FM/WGRY-FM in Northern Michigan.
WPBN/WTOM-TV’s Emmy-winning Chief Meteorologist Mark Watkins will deliver weather updates throughout the day on weekdays with Michigan native and CMU graduate Blake Hansen, will deliver the weekend weather updates.
“We’re beyond thrilled with this new partnership,” said Sheryl Coyne, president of Blarney Stone Broadcasting. “We live and work and play in Northern Michigan, and we all know how fickle the weather can be here and how it affects our daily lives.
“It’s extremely vital to have the best, up-to-the-minute information available to us, and by having the highly respected meteorological team of Mark Watkins and Blake Hansen update our listeners is consistent with our mission of serving the smartest listeners in this part of our state. They can now plan their days with even greater confidence.”
