We Appreciate Our Readers

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.

    Happy to help… it helps to be old(er)!

    Doc, btw, is a great guy — I’ve worked on some Versus and FSN/MSG telecasts with him throughout the years.
