SlapShot Radio moves to 102.5 The Game for new season

Paul McCann just announced over at his blog that SlapShot Radio, the weekly show featuring himself and Pete Weber talking hockey with a variety of guests from all over the NHL, is moving over to Preds flagship station 102.5 The Gamefor the upcoming season. This makes for a very natural fit, given 102.5's hockey-friendly format (they've been running the 303:30 over the airwaves on occasion, and just notice how much of their bump music coming in and out of commercial breaks is played at a Preds game), and follows up on Tuesday's debut of a new, hour-long pre-game show with both Willy Daunic and Tom Callahan setting up each contest.

You know what strikes me most about these developments? The fact that the Nashville Predators' radio home will not only place a strong emphasis on covering the home team, but will also provide a greater awareness of league-wide issues, moving beyond the simple "here's who the Preds are playing tonight" story line. SlapShot Radio already does a fine job of this, and a key aspect of the expanded preview show is that it allows time for Willy & Tom to talk about action around the NHL, not just the game at hand that night.

This represents a nice step forward for mainstream media coverage of hockey here in Nashville, and a further maturation of this area as an NHL city. Is anybody else ready for the season to start already?
