The Chronicle has learned from a source close to the negotiations that WRHU FM and the New York Islanders have reached a verbal agreement to make the Hofstra radio station the exclusive radio home of the Islanders for 2011-12. The source said that all that is left to do is "cross the T's and dot the I's."
For the second straight year, WRHU will be the exclusive radio home of the Islanders and includes all 82 regular season games as well as any postseason games.
The deal is expected to be formalized by Friday.
Chris King will continue to do play-by-play and student members of WRHU will still do color commentary as well as produce and air the game.
