12 Charter Bloggers announced; more to be added during the season

The NYI BLOG BOX, presented by, is up and running.

By clicking here, you will meet the 12 chosen charter bloggers and get the first look at their Islanders blogs. You will also be part of history, as a major professional sports team is opening up a separate press facility and their website on a grand scale to bloggers for the first time ever.

This first wave of blogs includes:

  • Passionate writing about all things Islanders, from Nassau County (B.D. Gallof – Freeport), Suffolk County ("7th Woman" Denise Karl – Sayville) and Hillsborough County (Jon Jordan – Tampa)

  • A Fantasy Sports analysis of the Islanders by a former ESPNer

  • Regular updates on the goings-on with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers

  • Everything you would want to know about the development of Kyle Okposo

And, as they say, so much more.

The NYI Blog Boxers are, among other things, teachers, editors and designers for publishing houses, finance managers, published authors, engineers. Some are first-time bloggers, some most assuredly are not. All are passionate, insightful, critical.

They will not be the only members of the NYI BLOG BOX. Sorting through the more than 200 candidates that sent in proposals has been a painstaking process. There’s no doubt there are a lot of good ones that haven’t gotten the nod yet. Sit tight.

If you want to lean on us to find out where you stand or would like to throw your hat into the ring for the first time, email us (well, actually Corey) at

And of course, do not ever, EVER forget Islanders TV. There is simply nothing like it in professional sports.
