In a post yesterday about the Rangers moving two games next year to New York’s WPIX 11, we asked the following question:
Any of our more elder statesmen reading the blog: Have the Rangers ever aired games on Channel 11?
Well, thanks to our commenter/reader Eric, we have our answer:
The Rangers aired on WPIX for a ten season span from 1948-49 to 1957-58 and then three additional seasons in the early 1960’s.
(As detailed in a 1996 book by John Kreiser and Lou Friedman, “The New York Rangers: Broadway’s Longest Running Hit”)
The late Win Elliot was the primary play-by-play man during many of the PIX years.
We appreciate the response Eric, because now you know, and knowing is half the battle.
