    Default Penguins to Launch "NHL in Russian"

    Penguins to Launch "NHL in Russian" Show on HD RadioTuesday, 11.17.2009 / 2:57 PM / News Pittsburgh PenguinsThe Pittsburgh Penguins have created a 30-minute Russian-language radio show devoted to Russian NHL fans that will air each week on the Penguins’ new HD radio station (105.9 HD2).


    "NHL in Russian" will air at 8:30 a.m. ET on Tuesday mornings in the U.S.
    “NHL In Russian” (“NXL Na Russkom”) will also be streamed live on www.pittsburghpenguins.com and www.nhl.com.

    The show, created in partnership with the National Hockey League, will feature interviews with Russian NHL players and legends, as well as NHL news and notes.

    It will air at 8:30 a.m. eastern time on Tuesday mornings in the U.S. (4:30 p.m. in Moscow). It also will be repeated several times and be available via podcast.

    “NHL in Russian” will debut on Tuesday, Nov. 24. Special guests on the inaugural show will be 2009 NHL scoring champion Evgeni Malkin and Russian hockey legend Igor Larionov.

    The host will be Gera (George) Birman, a native of Ukraine who was been a Pittsburgh Penguins front office employee for the past 10 years. In recent years, Birman has served as an interpreter for Malkin and been featured on a number of media interviews. Birman will be joined by Oleg Mejeritski of Sovietsky Sport and Alena (Alyonka) Larionov, currently a host of Pens TV.

    “We know there is immense interest in NHL hockey in Russia, and we thought this would be a unique way to take advantage of current technology and create a show devoted to Russian fans,” said Penguins president David Morehouse. “We believe there is a huge Russian fan base that will be interested in staying informed about Russian players and NHL news.”

    “The NHL’s Russian-speaking fan base is passionate and growing,” said Gregg Baldinger, director of NHL Radio. “By creating this innovative audio programming, the Penguins are providing greater access for Russian NHL fans to engage with the sport they love.”

    The Penguins recently became the first team in professional sports to launch an exclusive HD radio channel. Steve Mears and Tom Grimm host “Penguins Live” every weekday from 9:30 a.m-12 noon. Read more about thisa

    That's a pretty slick concept and good idea. Hockey is a pretty international sport with a lot of international players. Keeping the interest in international fans and creating that bridge between them and the NHL and keeping it closer is a pretty good marketing tool. Even better that the Pens are tapping it first.

    Any chance they will do some sort of english sub text on the show?

    Here's an interesting side-note worthless trivia bite.....

    I just got over to Tokyo a few hours ago... Currently 14 hours ahead of the east coast... (12:20pm Friday there.... 2:20am Saturday here...)

    ... Got into the room and turned-on the tv... They have a sportsstation, and lo-and-behold they are televising a Pens game.... Unfortunately it was from 3 weeks ago against the Blue Jackets....

    A 3 week old Penguins game? Both of those is really strange. that they are showing a Pens game and that it's that old. do they stay up to par with any sports from what you can tell?

    Looks like they are pretty far behind... At least as far as American sports go... We stopped down at the bar for a few beers and a bite to eat and all the games were old.... I tried making a bet on the hockey game, but the bartender wouldn't take my action...

    ... I think alot of the games are simply taped and re-aired on the sports networks here.

    Completely in Japanese (dubbed over).... I understood the names when mentioned, but not a single word of the rest of it...
