A common complaint from Amerks fans in Rochester has been taken care, games will now be broadcast on FM radio, WROO-FM (107.3). Sports Radio WHTK-AM (1280) announced today that it is simulcasting all its content on WROO-FM (107.3) starting midnight Wednesday.
Amerks games have been broadcast on WHTK-AM (1280) and that agreement is expected to be continued and announced at a press conference on Friday.
The signal strength of WHTK-AM (1280) has often caused issues for fans in and outside of the city who still listen using good old fashioned radios. This change should help attract more listeners who scan the FM dial but rarely click over to AM.
Local talk show host John DiTullio will be moving his show from 9am – Noon up to air from 3pm – 6pm. DiTullio has always done a great talking Amerks hockey, some positive hockey talk at that time of day could help encourage more people to attend games.
The move to FM radio and the expected news of the post game show from the arena being aired is even more good news from the Amerks this summer.
There’s still one story that can break for the off season to be complete and that would be the signing of a touch guy / enforcer.
