Fans can now listen to the Islanders live radio broadcast of every game directly from their iPhones. The app will also keep fans more in touch with their favorite hockey team with all the top news, statistics, videos and features from newyorkislanders.com.
The app was developed by Synergy in conjunction with the teams’ radio broadcast partner, WRHU, Radio Hofstra University.
“The advent of smartphones has put the world on to our hand-held devices,” said Paul Lancey, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales. “Our organization has made a real push in the digital space, this is just the next step. We look forward to watching it take shape, and we couldn’t ask for better partners than our friends at Hofstra.”
Dr. Evan Cornog, Dean of the Hofstra University School of Communication, said: “I’m delighted that the partnership between Hofstra and the Islanders is continuing to grow. We are pleased the role our University plays in broadcasting Islanders games on WRHU as well as in the new media space.”
