Pregame Warmup: College Radio Will Broadcast Islanders Games

For those of you who don’t know, this season the New York Islandersradio broadcast can be found on Radio Hofstra University on 88.7 FM.

This is new territory for a professional sports franchise and it could be a common water-cooler topic for Islanders fans as the season progresses. Especially, if there isn't a good broadcaster among the crop of interns (which probably will not be the case).

Here are two completely different opinions on the Islanders new business decision:

CNBC’s Sports Business Reporter Darren Rovell shares his favorable opinion.

Former Islanders Public Relations employee Eric Mirlis dissects the decision on his blog MIrlis On Sports.

What do you think of the idea of college students being apart of the Islanders radio broadcasts?
