Ex-Arena Hostess Hits Big Time
If you've been attending Isles games for many years you should remember Isles Arena Hostess Jill Nicolini. Sure after she left the Coliseum walls she bounced around TV News stations doing traffic reports and other fluff pieces. But now she has landed at NY's Fox Five morning news and is the entertainment reporter who replaced Julie Chang who now does the evening news and special assignments.
So, does a Long Island girl forget her Islander roots? Hardly. I wondered why in heaven's name Fox Five's weather reporter Mike Woods was wearing an Islander jersey and a Santa beard for Halloween. Then yesterday while the Isles were doing their yearly charity toy shopping at 7 am, Jill was on hand with her camera crew to capture the fun and razz the boys.
But as @PinkIsles tells me, Jill is not the only Islander connection Fox Five news has right now. It seems one of the producers is also a season ticket holder.
OOOOOOOHHHHHHH.... maybe the Isles will get a little better treatment from the News. Wouldn't that be nice?
