Monday marked the debut of the “Sabres Hockey Hotline” radio show hosted by Kevin Sylvester, broadcast live from the Sabres Store at First Niagara Center. Cody McCormick was among the guests during the inaugural show that will air Monday through Friday on WGR550 from 10 a.m.-Noon. It can also be streamed live at WGR550.com and through the WGR app.

The show will be an additional outlet for Sabres fans to hear exclusive interviews, analysis, team updates, as well as game and practice recaps. WGR 550, the team’s official radio station, and the Sabres have been broadcast partners for a combined 25 years over the course of the franchise’s 42-year history.

“We are very excited to add yet another platform for our fans to get original Sabres content,” said Buffalo Sabres President Ted Black. “Sabres Hockey Hotline will give fans an additional 350+ hours of Sabres programming each year that we know fans will love. It’s an ambitious undertaking for our organization and that’s why we put Kevin in charge of producing and hosting the show. He brings an important level of experience and passion for Sabres hockey that will make the show a great success.”

Sylvester, who has been a part of Sabres broadcasts since the 2005-06 season, will transition the bulk of his duties to the radio program and will serve as the show’s host and executive producer.

“I have a tremendous passion for Sabres hockey and for broadcasting, so I’m excited to move ahead with this new opportunity and contribute across multiple media platforms,” Sylvester said. “Sabres Hockey Hotline is just another example of how the organization is engaging fans to make them feel part of the fabric of Sabres hockey.”
