Hockey Play-By-Play Announcer

Pattison Media North Battleford is looking for the next ‘legend in the making’ to be the voice of Junior ‘A’ hockey action in Saskatchewan for the Battlefords North Stars. This is an opportunity that doesn’t come up often and we expect the competition to be fierce.

We’re looking for someone, based in the Battlefords/Saskatoon area, with a unique and energetic voice who is capable of multitasking throughout the game. What will set you apart is the ability to guide our audience through the game action while continually setting the scene through compelling stories, so our listeners become invested in the outcome and the players.

The successful candidate must be able to travel with the team (sometimes for an extended period of time) throughout the regular and post season.

This is a 7-month term position starting in September 2024.

Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:

  • Coordinating and executing radio play-by-play for the Battlefords North Stars home and away games
  • Gathering and submitting photos, videos and interview audio clips for the newsroom and our social media channels during games on the road
  • Writing and voicing radio stories for pre and post-game coverage
  • Covering other events as required.

Qualifications:

  • Post-secondary diploma or degree in broadcast journalism or minimum 1 year of sports broadcasting experience
  • Excellent play-by-play skills and in-depth knowledge of the sport
  • Ability to multi-task and work under tight deadlines
  • Professional appearance, valid driver’s license
  • Must be legally able to work in Canada.•
