The Nashville Predators have inked a multi-year flagship station broadcasting deal with WBUZ, a move that will be welcomed by fans who have had to wander the dial in recent years due to conflicts at 104.5 The Zone — see Section 303's take.
“WBUZ is Nashville owned and operated, boasts a 100,000-watt broadcast signal and is a top-ranked station in Middle Tennessee with tremendous demographics. Add to this their promotional ability and the fact that our fans can preset 102.9 FM for every game, and this is a fantastic partnership that will benefit our fans.”

The Nashville Sounds will be the AAA affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers through at least the 2012 season. But you have to wonder if this quote is an ultimatum of sorts.
“Frank Ward and his ownership group have provided our Nashville club with a number of our baseball-needed requests and the Brewers hope a new stadium is in the future plans,” Milwaukee vice president Doug Melvin said. “We appreciate the fans who have supported both the Sounds and the Brewers players who have earned their way to Milwaukee.”

The Nashville Sports Council has launched an online service designed to ease the registration process for regional sporting events. With Nashville Sports Online, event directors can get a free, customized registration system for their upcoming race, tournament or other event that registrants access through a link in the event’s website or directly from the Sports Council’s page. The Council says the system is a win for event organizers, participants and the Sports Council: Event directors get a free system and can nix paper-based registration, the Sports Council gets a new revenue source from a fee paid by registrants, and that money stays in the community to help the Council continue its work in attracting more big-ticket sporting events to Nashville.
“I am excited about this new opportunity for the Nashville Sports Council, through Nashville Sports Online, to be the catalyst behind local sporting event registration,” said Marty Paslick, chairman of the Sports Council e-commerce committee in a statement. “This is a great way for the Nashville Sports Council to deepen relationships within our community and significantly enhance the registration process for local event, facility, and league directors.”Council spokesman Dave Herrell said the organization expects to have a minimum of 60 events using the system in its first year, with the hope that it will grow into “several hundred” in the years that follow. The site will soon launch registration for the 2011 Nashville Predators Fangtastic 5k.

Freeland Chevrolet in Hickory Hollow will soon begin airing commercials featuring Titan star Chris Johnson. The two parties have agreed on a multi-year spokesman deal across multiple media.
“Chris has been very cautious in choosing who he aligns himself with which is evident in some of the companies he has partnerships with such as Nike and Powerade,” said Michael Lawson, Executive Vice President of Lagardere Unlimited and marketing agent for Johnson. “Freeland’s creativity and promotional plans using Chris are a perfect match and a great opportunity to expand both brands in the Nashville community.”SEE ALSO: Titan Chris Johnson makes a run at pitchman status
