Islanders Announce New Radio Deal

by Staff Writer / New York Islanders

The New York Islanders have announced the formation of the Islanders Radio Network. A new broadcast agreement with the Long Island Radio Group, Long Island’s largest radio group, provides the foundation of the Islanders Radio Network.


The Long Island Radio Group will broadcast all Islanders games in the 2008-09 season on terrestrial radio. Night games will be carried on WMJC 94.3 FM while all afternoon contests will air on WHLI 1100 AM. All Islanders games will also be available on XM Satellite Radio, whose recent merger with Sirius will result in an even larger satellite radio audience for the Islanders regionally and nationally. Internationally, fans will be able to listen to the Islanders via the Internet at www.newyorkislanders.com.

“The Long Island Radio Group and their line-up of stations including; KJOY 98.3FM, B-103, WRCN 103.9FM, LOVE 96.1FM, WMJC 94.3FM and WHLI 1100AM, provides the team and our sponsors with a broad Long Island-based promotional partnership that will deliver Islanders games, entertainment and daily news to our fans,” said Chris Dey, President, New York Islanders. Through the Islanders Radio Network, we are able to service our worldwide fan base and leverage the Islander brand from a local, regional, national and international perspective.”

“We’re proud to be partners with a Long Island icon like the New York Islanders and the history and tradition they represent,” said Dave Widmer, President, The Long Island Radio Group. It’s exciting to be part of the team and we’re looking forward to working with the entire New York Islanders organization – on the ice, and off the ice throughout the Long Island community.”

The broadcast team of Steve Mears and Chris King will continue as the radio voices of the Islanders. Both will also compliment the impact of the Islanders Radio Network as daily correspondents on Islanders TV, the Islanders 24-hour internet television network that can be found at www.newyorkislanders.com.
