iHeartMedia and the New Jersey Devils/Prudential Center are partnering to create “The One Jersey Sports and Entertainment Network”.
The digital network will carry all New Jersey Devils hockey games including 23 that previously had no terrestrial radio broadcast scheduled. All other games will be simulcast on CBS’ 660 WFAN/101.9 WFAN-FM. One Jersey will also feature live and on-demand programming from “prominent New Jersey personalities, journalists and up-and-coming talent” and ancillary Devils programming and other events taking place at the Prudential Center.
The One Jersey Network content will be available on the Devils own app as well as iHeartRadio.
The New Jersey Devils and Prudential Center have announced a partnership with iHeartMedia New York to launch The One Jersey Sports and Entertainment Network, a first-of-its-kind digital platform featuring all live regular season Devils hockey games and original Devils and New Jersey entertainment programming. Fans can access The One Jersey Network through the Devils app and via iHeartRadio, iHeartMedia’s all-in-one digital music and live streaming radio service, which is available across 90 unique device platforms spanning in-home entertainment, wearables, gaming, mobile and auto.
Starting with the November 6 Devils vs. Hurricanes game at 6 p.m., The One Jersey Network will exclusively carry 23 Devils games during the 2016-17 regular season featuring rivalry matchups with the New York Rangers (Dec. 11 and Dec. 18), Philadelphia Flyers (Dec. 22, Jan. 21, Mar. 16 and Apr. 4) and the New York Islanders (Apr. 8). All remaining Devils games this season will be simulcast on The One Jersey Network and the Devils’ broadcast radio partner WFAN. A complete radio and digital schedule is listed below.
“This is an exciting moment for Devils fans, and sports and entertainment fans across New Jersey, as we debut an innovative platform that will provide access to the team and arena like never before,” said Hugh Weber, President, New Jersey Devils and Prudential Center. “Backed by iHeartMedia’s industry-leading technology and our robust plan for original content, we believe The One Jersey Network will be a must-listen-to provider for New Jersey consumers.”
Original programming on The One Jersey Network will include exclusive live and on-demand content from the Devils and Prudential Center featuring Devils coaches, players, alumni and fans; Devils, sports, entertainment, community and cultural podcasts; and diverse, world-class New Jersey-focused entertainment content from The Rock – the home of New Jersey sports and entertainment.
