Actually – WCBS 880AM will broadcast games 1 and 2 on Thursday and Friday from Florida.
One of the strongest signals in radio, will broadcast Islander games, along with the current Islanders radio network. The Devils, eliminated for postseason play, gave permission for their flagship station to cover the Isles for the playoffs.
With the pockets of places that normally can not hear the station even on Long Island, it will be nice for anyone to be able to listen to John Tavares and the rest of the Orange and Blue, take on Jaromir Jagr and the Florida Panthers.
Chris King and Greg Picker will be calling all of the action.
WFAN will have a two hour hockey show before the start of Game 3 of the Isles/Panthers series. Chris Moore and Boomer Esiason (a known Ranger fan) will host the show at the Barclay’s Center prior to the 8PM faceoff.
All I can say is WOW! With the Isles doing well in Brooklyn, does this potentially mean that sometime in the future, the Isles may become the hockey source on 660?
Makes you go hmmmm.
