Radio Hofstra University.
Proudly Produced & Distributed New York Islanders Live Game Radio Broadcasts For the Seventh Consecutive NHL Season.
The 2016-17 NHL season marked the 7th consecutive year all NY Islander live game broadcasts aired on WRHU FM Radio Hofstra University. Hofstra students once again produced, engineered, and performed on-air roles on all NY Islander game broadcasts. This season Hofstra produced Islanders games also aired on: WFAN AM & FM (Sportsradio 66 and 101.9) New York City, Salem Radio 970 AM The Answer, LI News Radio WRCN FM Long Island, Sirius XM Satellite Radio, and the NHL Gamecenter app.
Hofstra students have broadcast live 564 NY Islanders games since the start of the 2010 NHL Season! For this 2013-2014 season, Hofstra students expanded coverage by airing live game content on 103.9 WRCN FM in Suffolk County. In January 2014 Hofstra students produced, engineered, and performed on-air roles for the Yankee Stadium Series outdoor NHL game between the NY Islanders and NY Rangers. What made this broadcast extra special? Not only did the Hofstra student content air live on WRHU FM and WRCN FM, it also aired live on WCBS 880 AM in New York City!
How good is the NY Islanders game content created by Radio Hofstra University students you may ask? It is at the same professional level as the most prestigious major market sports radio stations in the world. During the 2016 NHL playoffs all of the NY Islanders games were produced by students and distributed to air on either WCBS 880AM NY or WFAN radio (660 AM & 101.9 FM New York City). For the 2013 NHL playoffs both ESPN radio (98.7 FM New York City) and CBS sports station WFAN radio (660 AM & 101.9 FM New York City) each broadcast an entire live playoff game feed produced, engineered, and hosted by Hofstra students at WRHU FM. That's right, the WRHU created content aired on the two biggest sports radio brands in the world ESPN and WFAN! Not to mention student produced content aired on one of the largest and most important news radio brands in the world WCBS 880 New York City. No other student operated college radio station in the world can match that feat.
