Radio interviews on NHL future in Phoenix and Winnipeg

For those of you that are interested in hearing two people in charge of their respective campaigns to have a National Hockey League team in their city, you are in for a treat today.

The ongoing ownership saga in Arizona has had its wild twists and turns. During this week, it has been no different. The situation has been tenuous to say the least in Glendale, Arizona in regards to the future of the Phoenix Coyotes. A lengthy fight between Glendale city officials and the Phoenix-based taxpayer watchdog group The Goldwater Institute could derail hopes of selling necessary city bonds to complete the sale of the team to Chicago businessman Matthew Hulsizer.

As a result, speculation has run rampant higher than it ever has since United States Bankruptcy Court Judge Redfield T. Baum ruled in favor of the NHL taking over control of the Coyotes in 2009. Should the sale agreement collapse, the team may be forced to relocate in time for next season in which Winnipeg is a possible destination.

To hear what each representative of their campaigns have to say, tune in to the following radio shows in Phoenix and Winnipeg respectively:

Approximately 5:30 PM Eastern Time (3:30 PM in Phoenix)
