PENS TO LAUNCH HD RADIO CHANNEL
Posted by mvuk

The Pittsburgh Penguins will launch a new HD radio channel in September, devoted specifically to the Penguins, the NHL and other hockey-related programming.

“Pittsburgh Penguins Radio” will be a joint effort with 105.9 The X (WXDX-FM), the team’s radio rightsholder, and will be heard on 105.9 HD-2 and www.pittsburghpenguins.com, beginning with training camp coverage in September.

The Penguins are the first team in professional sports to announce the creation of a channel that may be heard 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

I have no clue where they're going to find the content to fill a 24/7 broadcast.

Easy. 10 hours a day dedicated to Bob Errey talking about his favorite long sticks in the league.

Sharks' radio network flag station (KUFX aka KFox 98.5) has been HD for a year or more.



(Sharks also supply audio links/downloadable podcasts)
