While most people pile around the television set for Sunday NFL action, there are some fans who have no choice but to tune in the radio to catch all of the action.
The Jets will air on ESPN 1050 (WEPN-AM) and the Giants will air on WFAN (660-AM), although some September games will appear on WCBS (101.1-FM) due to conflicts with the Mets schedule. WFAN will also carry Westwood One’s prime-time NFL package on Sunday, Monday and Thursday nights and select day-time games.
Local stations WALL (1340-AM) in Middletown and WEOK (1390-AM) in Poughkeepsie plan to air a schedule of Sunday afternoon NFL games off a syndicated provider known as Compass Media — the Westchester County based outfit carries the Oakland Raiders network, plus afternoon doubleheaders. The schedule for those two stations are not available yet, but WINE (940-AM) in Danbury, Conn., and WPUT (1510-AM) in Brewster will air a number of those contests — their day-time signal in the Eastern portion of the THR coverage area is pretty good but the quality may fade the further west and north you travel.
I will provide the WALL/WEOK NFL schedule as soon as I receive it. Here is the WINE/WPUT NFL schedule:
