World Series minimally available on NY metro radio due to ESPN1050 signal
In the New York City area, the World Series cannot clearly be heard on AM or FM radio. For crying out loud, just a bit west or south of the Media Capital of the World, the World Series on the most popular form of commercial radio has been reduced to a static-laced, in-and-out whisper.
That’s a crime against American nature, no? Or is the watered-down, artificial-additives World Series no longer worth saving, let alone savoring?
Those remanded to a car Saturday night a mere 20 miles south of Manhattan were stuck trying to find a reasonably listenable signal of ESPN Radio’s exclusive live broadcast. There was nothing broad about it. The best many could do was pick up 1000 AM, out of, I think, Chicago.
It’s an added shame that in Dan Shulman, Orel Hershiser and Bobby Valentine, ESPN Radio has a pretty good team.
At the same time Saturday the USC-Notre Dame game could be heard loudly and clearly on several AM stations.
