WLIF drops Jacks' affiliation


The Skipjacks announced yesterday that tomorrow's game in Utica will be the last broadcast on WLIF-AM 1300, which has been its flagship station all season.

The station said yesterday that its programming switch to include a 100 percent simulcast on both its AM and FM stations doesn't allow for Jacks games.

The Jacks reached a short-term agreement with WITH-AM 1230 to carry Friday's game at the Arena with Utica and Saturday's game with Capital District in Albany, N.Y. Ken Albert will remain the team's play-by-play man.

There is no word on whether Sunday's regular-season finale in Binghamton will be carried on local radio. The Jacks hope to have that and the playoff situation resolved sometime before Thursday.
