All Shore Media and Shore Sports Network Have Joined Forces
Townsquare Media Group has entered into an exclusive partnership with All Shore Media, LLC, a New Jersey Shore based multimedia company dedicated to covering high school athletics in New Jersey’s Shore Conference in Monmouth and Ocean counties. All Shore Media is dedicated to highlighting the achievements of local athletes while providing news and information to families, fans and coaches. This partnership combines All Shore with Townsquare’s Shore Sports Network (www.shoresportsnetwork.com), which currently broadcasts high school and college sports as well as minor league baseball.
All Shore Media was launched in 2008 as a standalone website and began producing a free bi-weekly newspaper when Director/CEO Steve Meyer joined the company a year later. Meyer, who handles all sales for the company and produces the newspaper, will continue in those roles while assisting in various new projects for the new venture. The website has been a regular destination for a large and passionate base of Shore Conference fans, parents, players and coaches in the core sports of football, soccer, basketball, wrestling, baseball and lacrosse. Effective immediately All Shore Media’s digital properties will be re-branded and re-directed to www.shoresportsnetwork.com with the All Shore Media team continuing to drive content creation. Furthermore, Townsquare and All Shore will combine forces on events such as the WOBM Christmas Classic and the US Army All-Shore Gridiron Classic.
“To partner with a company that shares our vision, and who has created the Shore Sports Network is about as good as it gets,” said All Shore Media Director and Managing Editor Scott Stump. “I am excited about the future as we’re now all on the same team.”
Greg Janoff, Regional Vice President for Townsquare Media New Jersey commented, “This partnership defines who we are at Townsquare Media. We want to serve our local communities with great programming and events that matter. I’m the father of a former student athlete who played high school football and baseball and I know first hand that nothing brings people and towns together like high school sports. The project with All Shore Media is an exciting one because we share a passion for Shore Conference sports. Athletes and fans will benefit greatly as will businesses looking to reach this important local market. ”
Townsquare’s Shore Sports Network broadcasts high school football and basketball and is the radio home for Monmouth University football and basketball, Lakewood BlueClaws minor league basketball and the NFL’s New York Jets. The Shore Sports Network is led by Kevin Williams, a 34-year broadcasting veteran, along with Matt Harmon, Ed Sarluca and Eddy Occhipinti.
