382nd Post - Serendipity

Earlier today I was wondering if the Halifax Mooseheads hockey (excuse me, ice hockey) games will be broadcast on the radio. For years they were broadcast on CJCH. I figured they would end up on the Rogers station, News 95.7.

I wrote someone at the Mooseheads organization today, asking her if she had heard anything about it. She kindly wrote me back that, yes, the Mooseheads games will be on the radio again. And, yes, John Moore will still be handling the broadcasts (he and I share the same birthdate, but he is older than I am). But this year, they'll be on 780 KIXX, the final AM station left in this market.

I know that this station has been sold to Rogers. I am not sure just when the takeover will happen, and how long the station will remain on the AM dial. But it appears that for the upcoming Mooseheads season, we'll be able to still hear the regular season games (24 of 34, at least) on the radio.

Good news!
