The NHL Islanders are on Hofstra's FM signal - the team couldn't even buy time anywhere in NY.

We've seen teams come close. The Expos lost English radio for a while, 
and the As were on a college station at one point just to stay on the 
air somewhere. (That was in the late 80s or early 90s, if memory serves, 
but the As once again came close to losing radio this year when their 
previous flagship, KTRB 860, went bankrupt.)
