Grand Valley State athletics has announced that three of its 2023 football games will be live on WXSP-TV. WXSP-TV will serve as the exclusive live in-market television partner for the Lakers.
The slate of games on WXSP-TV will begin with the home opener set for Saturday, September. 9 versus Colorado State-Pueblo. Kickoff at Lubbers Stadium is set for 7 p.m. In addition, WXSP-TV will air the Saturday, October 7 contest versus Kentucky State (7 p.m.) and the Saturday, October 14 Anchor-Bone Classic versus Ferris State (3 p.m.).
"We are excited to once again partner with WXSP to bring three GVSU football games to West Michigan on WXSP-TV," said Deputy Director of Athletics Doug Lipinski. "We feel it is important that we continue to bring Grand Valley State athletics to West Michigan on a local television channel and we want to be the brand in Grand Rapids."
Bryan Fongers will handle the play-by-play duties for Laker football on television and video streaming on FloSports for the 2023 campaign, while Bob Mitchell will continue with color commentary.
