Islanders Renew Partnership With WRHU 88.7 FM, Radio Hofstra University
Coverage To Extend Into Suffolk County on WRCN 103.9 FM

The New York Islanders announced today a new radio broadcast agreement with WRHU 88.7 FM, Radio Hofstra University, to broadcast games throughout the 2013-14 National Hockey League season. This season, Islanders fans will also have the ability to listen to the broadcast on WRCN 103.9 FM, improving the signal further east into Suffolk County.

“We’re pleased to continue our partnership with WRHU, while also better serving our loyal fans by extending the broadcast signal further east on WRCN,” Islanders Senior Vice President Michael Picker said. “The management and students at WRHU have done an excellent job with the broadcast and we’re excited for WRCN to help us improve our broadcast reach into Suffolk County.”

Islanders Radio veteran Chris King will once again produce the broadcasts and serve as the radio voice, handling the play-by-play duties. Hofstra University students will assist in the broadcast and have the opportunity to serve as color analysts and sideline reporters.

Dr. Evan Cornog, Dean of the Lawrence Herbert School of Communication at Hofstra University, said: “WRHU is a college radio station that holds itself to the highest professional standards, so we are delighted to enter into a fourth year as the flagship radio station for a great professional sports franchise, the New York Islanders.”

The Islanders will open the season on the road against the New Jersey Devils on Friday, Oct. 4 at 7 p.m. Team captain John Tavares and the Islanders will play the following night, Saturday, Oct. 5, their home opener at Nassau Coliseum, against the Columbus Blue Jackets. The opening faceoff is set for 7 p.m.

“JVC Broadcasting is incredibly proud to partner with Hofstra University and the New York Islanders to carry the games in Suffolk County,” General Manager of WRCN Matthew Goldapper said. “Residents from Islip to Montauk will now have the ability to listen to all of the action on 103.9 FM.”
