HAMILTON, ONT. – The Hamilton Bulldogs Hockey Club announced today its broadcast schedule for the 2014-15 season, which will feature all games carried live on AM900 CHML and AHL Live as well as all 13 Friday night regular season home games live in high definition on Cable 14.
“We’re excited to have AM900 CHML and Cable 14 on board again this season for our local radio and TV audiences,” said Bulldogs president Stephen Ostaszewicz. “We look forward to hearing CHML build on a strong year as our radio broadcast partner in 2013-14 and watching Cable 14 continue to present a fantastic television product.”
For all 13 Friday night regular season home games on Cable 14, Stephen Clark will return as play-by-play announcer, while Norm Miller also returns as colour commentator. Clark, a Waterdown resident, has been involved at Cable 14 since 2005. He has called Ontario University Athletics, Ontario Colleges Athletic Association, high school and international basketball and semi-pro soccer for the station. Miller has been involved with Cable 14’s Bulldogs broadcasts as colour commentator for more than 10 years. He worked in professional sports in communications for 15 years, starting his career with the Canadian Football League in 1988, and was with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats from 1993 to 1999. He also spent two seasons as colour commentator for the Ontario Hockey League’s Brampton Battalion on Rogers TV.
“Cable 14 and its shareholder companies – Rogers, Cogeco and Source Cable – remain committed to bringing fans and viewers yet another exciting season of Bulldogs hockey,” said Cable 14 general manager Brent Rickert. “The team on the ice looks as solid as the Cable 14 production and on-air team, who can’t wait for the puck to drop so they can offer yet another year of spectacular goals, great hits and fantastic saves – all in HD.”
