PAMAL (ADIRONDACK BROADCASTING) Classic Hits WNYQ (Q101.7 FM)/HUDSON FALLS-GLENS FALLS, NY will broadcast ADIRONDACK PHANTOMS minor league hockey this season under a three-year deal. The PHANTOMS are moving to the GLENS FALLS CIVIC CENTER from PHILADELPHIA due to the closing of the PHANTOM's previous home, the SPECTRUM. OWEN NEWKIRK will call all 80 regular-season games and playoffs.
"We are very excited to be teaming up with ADIRONDACK BROADCASTING to bring the Phantoms broadcasts to Q101.7 FM," said NEWKIRK. "The station has an excellent coverage area, a strong signal on the FM dial and is backed by great enthusiasm that will help us provide a first class radio broadcast."
ADIRONDACK BROADCASTING GM TOM BARNEY said, "ADIRONDACK BROADCASTING is very excited to be the GLENS FALLS stations for PHANTOMS hockey in the next three years. WNYQ 101.7 is an FM station that covers the NORTH COUNTRY and PHANTOM Hockey is the only sports team the station will carry so there will be able to broadcast every game of the 80-game season plus any playoff games. Q101.7 will carry other PHANTOM programming like a weekly talk show and a coach's show. The first game will be here before we know it and we hope to be broadcasting from a filled CIVIC CENTER all season."
