It’s Friday, and that means that another week has successfully floated by, and the countdown is whittling itself away as well. ONLY 62 days until the Dallas Stars open their regular season against the Chicago Blackhawks on October 9th at the American Airlines Center.
The Dallas Stars announced their official broadcasting crew for the 2014-2015 season yesterday, including analysts, commentators, and radio hosts.
Here is the official list:
Ralph Strangis and Daryl Reaugh: The dynamic duo of the Stars media program will return to their respective positions for another year. Ralph will retain his play-by-play gig while Razor will maintain his “colorful” color analyst job. The pair will be working on their 19th season this upcoming year and look forward to making us laugh and enjoy the local broadcasts once again.
Ali Lucia: Lucia will be moving from her role as host of “Stars Live”, the intermission recap show on Fox Sports Southwest, to her new job as an ice-level reporter for only the home games. Along with this change, she will continue her role as a reporter for DallasStars.com, in which she interviews players and front-office employees.
Josh Bogorad: The long time radio host for Stars’ pre-game, post-game, and intermission reports on SportsRadio 1310AM and 96.7FM The Ticket will be moving from his job on the radio waves to a new gig in front of the camera. Bogorad will be replacing Ali Lucia as the new host of Stars Live and will provide in-depth analysis before, during, and after Stars games alongside Brent Severyn, Craig Ludwig and Stu Barnes.
Owen Newkirk: Newkirk is the only newly-hired member of the Stars broadcast crew, and is coming from his seven prior seasons in the AHL, with his most recent gig being the director of broadcasting and media relations for the Texas Stars. He has served as a play-by-play announcer, color commentator, and director of public relations throughout his 12 year tenure of broadcasting professional hockey. He will join Bruce Levine as a co-host for the radio gig mentioned above and will officially replace Josh Bogorad.
