Entercom, the New Jersey Devils, and New York Islanders have announced that all regular-season and postseason games for both teams will stream live from Radio.com. As part of the agreement, the broadcasts will be available free via Radio.com’s app and website as well as the NHL, New Jersey Devils, and New York Islanders mobile apps and websites.
“We’re excited to expand our partnership with the New Jersey Devils and add the New York Islanders,” said Jeff Sottolano, Senior Vice President, Entercom. “As the fastest-growing digital audio app in the United States and unrivaled leader in local sports coverage, Radio.com aims to become a daily habit for the millions of users we reach each month, including tri-state hockey fans.”
“Technology continues to evolve the ways fans follow their teams; over the last few years we have been focused on creating new platforms for our fans to engage with our teams,” said Hugh Weber, President, Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment, New Jersey Devils and Prudential Center. “Specifically in terms of our audio rights, we have taken a conscious, phased approach in digitally streaming our games with the mission of making our broadcasts available when and where our fans choose.”
“The way our fanbase consumes information about the New York Islanders is constantly changing. As an organization, we want to work with new platforms that will continue to give our fans that information in cutting-edge areas,” said Lou Lamoriello, President and General Manager, New York Islanders. “The ability to partner with Entercom while still having a presence on WFAN, allows our fanbase to not only listen to live game broadcasts, but receive exclusive content that will make them feel closer to the team.”
