13:36 EDT Thursday, April 04, 2013

EVERETT, Wash. (Business Wire) -- Seattle baseball great Jay Buhner has joined the Frontier Communications (NASDAQ: FTR) lineup as part of a special contest. Buhner, a fan favorite, is Frontier Communications' Washington state spokesperson for 2013. He will help spread the word in radio and print, online and outdoors, about the fantastic value and benefits of Frontier's products and services.

“When you think of Seattle baseball, a name that comes to mind immediately is Jay Buhner,” said Rich Klena, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Frontier. “He exemplifies the dedication and hard work at the heart of Frontier's Values. Jay was among the most recognizable and reliable players of his day. We want customers to think the same way about Frontier, because just like Jay, our 100 percent U.S.-based men and women give their all on and off the field.”

To kick off this new relationship, Jay and Frontier have created a fun contest --“Baseball with Buhner” -- open to all Washington state residents 18 years of age or older. Five lucky winners can each invite three friends to meet Jay and watch Seattle take batting practice on Friday, July 26. The winners will also receive baseballs and jerseys autographed by Jay.
