Just wondering: Islanders signal radio change

With the Isles' season drawing nigh, readers ask: Whither the team's radiocasts?

Turns out our heroes have moved from WBBR-AM, a 50,000-watt, clear channel powerhouse, to WMJC (94.3), an FM station in Farmingdale with a signal that won't hit every sliver of the Island, let alone points far west and north. Day games will be on sister station WHLI-AM (1100).

The team is working on adding outlets for fans elsewhere in the area who can't get those stations, and is emphasizing options such as live Internet streams or XM Satellite Radio.

Still, some diehards who live far from Farmingdale are sure to be frustrated. Why the change?

Spokesman Josh Bernstein said the team was attracted by support and promotion it will get from its new partners, including extras such as coach Scott Gordon calling WMJC's morning show.

"We were looking for more of a grass-roots things," he said. "It was a long process of trying to find a new home; this is the home we thought was the best fit for us.
