Remember when ESPN radio was on 107.1 FM a few years ago? It’s coming back:
Newsday reports that “ESPN New York” 98.7 WEPN-FM New York will add a partial simulcast on 107.1 WLIR-FM Hampton Bays and 96.9 W245BA Manorville, NY next week.
Next Monday, Champions Radio will be heard on 107.1 FM in Hampton Bays in addition to 96.9 FM in Manorville. This is good news for sports fans on the east end who haven’t been able to listen to ESPN after they moved from 1050 AM to 98.7 FM. If ESPN plays their cards right, Yankee baseball could be broadcast on FM from one end of the island to the other.
Hope Radio, the current occupant of 107.1 FM, will either find another FM outlet or continue as an internet-only radio station.
Will WFAN do something similar with their FM signal? Only time will tell…
