Islanders Look To College Station For Game Coverage

As the NHL season begins, the NEW YORK ISLANDERS are without a deal with a commercial radio station to carry the team's game broadcasts, and the NEW YORK TIMES and ISLANDERSPOINTBLANK.COM are reporting that the team is arranging a deal to give this season's radio rights to HOFSTRA UNIVERSITY noncommercial WRHU/HEMPSTEAD, LONG ISLAND, NY. The deal would likely leave ISLANDERS radio voice CHRIS KING in the play-by-play chair while using HOFSTRA students for most other duties, including intermission hosting, engineering, and production.
The ISLANDERS aired on BARNSTABLE Hot AC WMJC/SMITHTOWN (night games) and sister Adult Standards WHLI-A/HEMPSTEAD for the last two seasons.
