(L-R) Jon Russell and Cal VanSingel.

Cumulus Media’s WLCS-FM (Muskegon) sports team Jon Russell and Cal VanSingel have been elected as the Gene Young Distinguished Service Award winners by the Muskegon Area Sports Hall of Fame for 2019.

They will be part of the induction class to be honored during the annual MASHF banquet on June 1 at the Muskegon Country Club.

The duo have been on the Muskegon-area airwaves for more than two decades and have called more than 1,100 high school football and basketball games in total.

Russell and VanSingel became a radio team in the 1990s at the now-defunct WSHN-AM in Fremont, before moving to WLCS in the early 2000s.

Russell told MLive that the Hall of Fame recognition is a “very humbling experience.”
