Guelph, ON - Corus’ radio properties Magic 106 and 1460 CJOY are excited to announce an ambitious partnership with the Guelph Royals of the IBL for the upcoming 2017 baseball season.

Magic and CJOY are looking forward to teaming up with the Royals as the embark on their 99th year with some new promotions and exciting contests!
Brad Hulme, the new Program Director and Afternoon Host on Magic 106 says:
“This partnership is important for a couple of reasons; first, it helps solidify Magic’s “Our Community First” philosophy. The Royals are a Guelph tradition. This organization was one of the first members of the Guelph Chamber of Commerce and has been part of summer in the Royal City for a nearly a century! Second, baseball is a personal passion and seeing the game continue to develop at the grassroots level is important to me. Stay tuned to find out how your son or daughter could become an honourary batboy or batgirl for the day… We will give you a chance to audition to win your opportunity to sing the national anthem before a Royals’ home game… we looking forward to Magic/CJOY night at the ballpark and connecting with the community throughout the summer!”
Jim Rooney, the President of the Royals echoes many of those statements:
"The Magic and Guelph Royals partnership connects the best in our community- the best community station and the best local IBL baseball. Both have a history of serving the community and this relationship "hits a home run" for Guelph."
