WLUN ESPN 100.9 FM in Midland, Michigan has announced the promotion of Brad Tunney to the station’s lead play-by-play broadcaster, and the hiring of Blake Froling as a new play-by-play broadcaster and content coordinator.

Tunney, who has worked with the station and the Great Lakes Loons since 2014, replaces broadcaster Chris Vosters, who is leaving to pursue other opportunities. He will also maintain his current role as the station’s program manager. Froling will join the station’s Saginaw Valley League football coverage later this month.

“We are excited to have Brad as the new voice of Loons baseball and to add Blake to our team,” station General Manager Matt DeVries said.

“In his time with us, Brad has exhibited exceptional work ethic and understanding of the impact we can make for sports fans in this area. We’re incredibly excited for him and know that he will continue to do a great job for us.

“Blake will be a tremendous addition to the staff and will help us maintain the reputation we’ve built as the area’s go-to place for sports coverage and live local games. These two guys will maintain the high-quality broadcasts our listeners have come to expect.

Froling, a native of Troy, Mich., joins WLUN after serving as the sports director at WZAM ESPN UP 970 AM in Marquette.

“I’m so excited to be teaming up with ESPN 100.9-FM and the Great Lakes Loons,” Froling said. “I want to thank Matt DeVries, Scott Litle and everyone else involved for giving me this tremendous opportunity and I can’t wait to get started.”
