Rangers Radio Debuts with Mike Keenan on Friday


Written on 10/15/2009 by Jim Cerny

As you can well expect I am fired up to host the brand-new weekly podcast talk program, Rangers Radio, over at NewYorkRangers.com.

While I love serving as the beat writer for the team's official site, broadcasting is still very much in my bones. So the chance to chat Rangers hockey with my co-host Steven Gelbs, while also interviewing current and former members of the organization, and answering the fans e-mail questions, is going to be a lot of fun, plain and simple.

And we have a very special guest for the first show, former Rangers (and Flyers...and Blues...and Panthers...and Bruins...and Flames...and, well you get the idea) head coach Mike Keenan. Expect Keenan to look back at the magical 1993-94 season (it's already been 15 years...incredible!), while also analyzing the current state of the Rangers in his new role as guest hockey analyst for The MSG Network.

Here is complete information on the show from the Rangers official team site.

I have reported on the NHL for 20 years, and for much of that time, I have covered the New York Rangers, whether as a radio reporter, talk show host, reporter for The Rangers Fax Report (remember that oldie but goodie from the mid '90's?!), or as beat writer. Because of that experience, I have many stories to share and insight to dispense.

And if nothing else, I'm good for a few laughs along the way!

Speaking of laughs,  Andrew Gross from The Record in northern New Jersey plugged Rangers Radio in his blog this morning, while also sharing a funny tale about how he crushed my career as play-by-play voice of the New York Islanders earlier this decade. It's funny stuff, and it's 100 percent the truth!!

You should be following Andrew's blog anyway, but definitely check out today's post.

And come join Rangers Radio at NewYorkRangers.com, this week and each week to follow. It's going to be a fun journey.

As a side note, I am considering hosting a weekly NHL podcast based on this Rink Rap blog---seperate from Rangers Radio---not just Rangers-related, but chock full of NHL news, opinions, guests, etc. If you like---or hate---the idea let me know. You might be able to sway my decision one way or the other.

    Bring back Rink Rap, of course!!
    We loved it in Brooklyn, and listened all the time back in the 90's.
