WMCN44, Philadelphia recently announced the addition of Jennifer Sherlock as a contributing reporter to its Flyers-focused sports show “Propper Hockey.”
Sherlock is the President of Jenna Communications and was a full-time television reporter/anchor for eight years in the Atlantic City, Harrisburg and Philadelphia markets. She will join the station’s original program alongside NHL legend Brian Propp and local veteran sportscaster Lou Tilley on February 1, 2012.
Since its November 2011 launch, Propper Hockey has featured many former Flyers legends including: Dave “The Hammer” Schultz, Bernie Parent, Bob “The Hound” Kelley, Orest Kindrachuk and Joe Watson. Now, with Sherlock on board, Propp and Tilley will be able to take questions directly from Flyers fans in the audience.
The hour-long show is taped live at Adelphia Restaurant in Deptford, N.J., every Tuesday night at 6:00pm. It airs on WMCN44 on Wednesday nights at 9:00pm throughout the NHL’s regular season.
“Jennifer adds an interactive element to the show that will increase audience participation and allow Lou and Brian to play off the passion of Flyers fans at our live tapings,” says Jon Gorchow, President, Lenfest Broadcasting. “We hope even more people will come out and be a part of the action.”
“I have worked with Jennifer on several major sporting events,” says Tilley. “I have always found her to be a vibrant reporter who energizes our presentation.”
“I am looking forward to meeting the Flyers fans that come out to the tapings, and plan to foster the friendly banter that’s sure to develop between the audience, Lou, Brian and myself,” says Sherlock.
“It’s going to be a great time each week. I’ll make sure of that!”
