MINNEAPOLIS (November 20, 2014) – The International Series of Champions (ISOC) is pleased to announce its all-star broadcast team for the upcoming 2014-’15 AMSOIL Championship Snocross, powered by Ram competition season, which gets underway in just over a month at Duluth’s (Minn.) famed Spirit Mountain.
Led by veteran announcer Mike Schroeder, this year’s AMSOIL Championship Snocross broadcast team is highlighted by the return of Minneapolis’ popular “Powertrip Morning Show” (KFAN) co-host, Chris Hawkey, along with CW Twin Cities network host Carly Aplin. The trio will document the accounts of each thrilling ACS round (17 total!) with the new television package that kicks off on Sunday, Dec. 7 on the CBS Television Network, followed by continued programming on CBS Sports Network with 17 one-hour shows airing on Sundays, beginning on Dec. 14, including a one-hour live show on Sunday, March 15, 2015.
Schroeder, Hawkey and Aplin will also deliver the accounts, live, over the Internet through ISOC’s real time coverage of all the AMSOIL Championship Snocross racing action on www.isocracing.com, along with being be featured on “Sledhead 24/7 TV.
With the sport of snocross since its halcyon days at the turn of the millennium, Schroeder, an engineer with Lakeland Broadcasting by day, has been announcing motorsports (snowmobile drag racing and speed events) coming up on three decades. He’s got a grasp on the sport of snocross and, most importantly, its participants, like no one else – remembering many of today’s Pro and Pro Lite racers from their days on 120cc sleds.
Hawkey returns full-time to AMSOIL Championship Snocross after taking last season off. A veteran of the dirt track racing scene (both racing and announcing), the “Hawk” quickly caught on announcing snocross – and will partner with Schroeder in the booth to make a formidable team beginning in Duluth on Nov. 28th. Aplin begins her third year with AMSOIL Championship Snocross with all sorts of experience in bringing fans a behind-the-scenes look at the events, with insightful interviews and always pertinent ‘insider’ information.
