We’re grateful to station owner Jim Dedelow and Sports Director Sam Michel for seeing the potential that the Corn Dogs’ brand of sports entertainment can bring to their broadcast platforms.”

Dedelow said the broadcast partnership is a win-win for both organizations.

“WJOB and JEDtv have long-been a prime outlet for local sports programming across the Northwest Indiana region, and now we’re raising our game through our broadcast partnership with the Corn Dogs,” Dedelow said. “I’ve admired the Corn Dogs’ success on the diamond and in attracting fans to the ballpark during their first two seasons. I’m looking forward to what we can accomplish together this season and beyond.”

WJOB/JEDtv Sports Director Sam Michel added, “We’re excited at JEDtv to continue to add partnerships with the region’s great sports organizations. Summertime will now be filled with Corn Dogs baseball on the JEDtv Sports Network.”
