The Rapid City Rush looking for new PA announcer
The Rapid City Rush have begun the search for a new public address announcer for the 2011-2012 season. For the past three seasons, “Sugar” Ray Quinn has been the in-game announcer.
“We want to wish Ray well on his future endeavors as he moves closer to his family in Omaha, Neb.,” senior director of marketing and entertainment John Hess said. “He truly is one of the best announcers in the CHL and has been a great part of our game-night presentation.”
Auditions will be held Aug. 31 and is open to only those who go through the application process.
“We are looking for someone who has knowledge of the sport of hockey and will be able to easily step into the position,” Hess said. “Although there is a suggested prior experience for the position, anyone has a shot to apply and audition. There are a lot of technical aspects to the job, and we want to make sure the person we find is comfortable and ready to go for the home opener in October.
“One of the perks of being the PA announcer is getting to experience Rush hockey up close, behind the scenes and help support the best fans in the CHL.”
The deadline to apply is Aug. 22. For more information, contact John Hess at John@RapidCityRush.com or call 605- 716-7825.
