i98FM will continue to be a media sponsor for the Illawarra Hawks 2019/2020 NBL season, as well as the official Hawks player partner for American basketball sensation, LaMelo Ball who signed with the Hawks earlier this year.
LaMelo, considered a top prospect for the 2020 NBA Draft, told Breakfast Show hosts Marty, Christie & Crammy his time in the Illawarra so far has “…been nice out here, the weather is good and everybody around here’s nice – it’s a real good vibe.”
i98FM, along with parent company the WIN Network, have a long history with the Illawarra Hawks, having been a media partner for over 15 years and network CEO, Andrew Lancaster, says, “We’re proud of our on-going association with the Illawarra Hawks and are excited for the season ahead.
“Having a global talent like LaMelo Ball on the roster is a real coup for the team and the league in general. We can’t wait to see him hit the court and it’s our honour to be his official Hawks player partner.”
