Islanders Stadium Series Game to be broadcast on WCBS NEWSRADIO 880AM
Radio call will broadcast on leading NY News Station WCBS as well as WRHU & WRCN

The New York Islanders announced today that WCBS NEWSRADIO 880AM, as well as the Islanders official radio stations, Hofstra University WRHU 88.7 FM and WRCN 103.9 FM, will broadcast the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series™ game live on Wednesday, Jan. 29 at 7:30 p.m. Chris King, the Islanders play-by-play announcer and color analyst, Rob Joyce, will call the action.

With one of the largest, most veteran local news staffs in the country, WCBS 880 is among America’s most listened to radio stations providing breaking news, local headlines, business, sports and entertainment updates for more than 45 years. The match-up between the area’s local teams will be available on-air at 880AM and WCBS-FM 101.1 HD2.

“We’re thrilled to partner with WCBS NEWSRADIO 880 to carry 2014 Coors Light Stadium Series™ game on their various platforms,” Islanders Sr. VP Michael Picker said. “Our fans that are unable to attend this once in a lifetime event will have the ability to turn their radio dial to WCBS, as well as WRHU and WRCN to listen to the next big chapter in the historic Islanders/Rangers rivalry at Yankee Stadium.”

“This highly anticipated contest between the Islanders and Rangers has wide appeal to listeners across New York, New Jersey and Connecticut,” said Don Bouloukos, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, CBS RADIO New York. “We look forward to showcasing the great hockey talent and pageantry of this classic match-up.”

“We are proud of the exceptional work that WRHU’s management and students produce as the flagship station for the New York Islanders,” said Evan Cornog, Dean of Hofstra’s Lawrence Herbert School of Communication. “This unique partnership with a great major league sports franchise continues to provide our students with extraordinary opportunities to work directly with leading news organizations like WCBS NEWSRADIO.”
