League games on air

LAST season they heated up the airways with their blow-by-blow description of local rugby league games.

And in 2011, Life FM 103.1's Doug Graham and Barry Muntz will be at it again, thanks to Scott Thomson and Something Solar.

Something Solar has come on board as the season broadcaster's major sponsor.

“I'm born and raised in Grafton and believe sport is the backbone of the Grafton community,” Thomson said.

“I make a livelihood in the community and I thought I'd put something back.”

Thomson and Something Solar were involved with local league last year during the NRRRL semi-finals and donated money to the player of the match. Graham said the response the station received last year was all positive.

“We provide a service for those who can't make the game,” Graham said. “The response was quite overwhelming.

“Even rugby league supporters who were out at sea fishing were tuning into Life FM.”

Muntz said the station will be broadcasting local games each weekend.

“We will spread it out and broadcast home games of the Rhinos, Ghosts and Magpies,” he said. Life FM will be broadcasting Sunday's blockbuster between the Grafton Ghosts and the Lower Clarence Magpies.
