BCHL This Week returns to TSN Radio

Half hour audio showcase of B.C. Hockey League starts Sept. 13/14, features play-by-play broadcasters' work.

The BCHL will be back on the province’s No. 1 all-sports radio station again for the 2014-15 season and ‘BCHL This Week’ will enter its second season as part of the deal.

TSN Radio will carry the 30-minute program hosted by veteran hockey commentator Jeff Paterson. ‘BCHL This Week’ will air Saturdays from 9:30 to 10 a.m. on TSN 1410.

“The show evolved over the course of last season and we were thrilled with the coverage the league received from it,” said BCHL communications director Brent Mutis. “Jeff Paterson is a true professional and he does a great job of putting the spotlight on the players and coaches around the league as well as the many alumni guests we get.”

Fans can expect to hear from longtime BCHL personalities like Powell River Kings coach Kent Lewis and Penticton Vees coach Fred Harbinson, notable BCHL alumni like Kyle Turris and Travis Zajac and NHL draft picks currently in the league like Vees forward Jack Ramsey (Chicago) and Nanaimo Clippers forward Jake Jackson (San Jose).

‘BCHL This Week’ is also a great showcase of the BCHL’s many talented play-by-play broadcasters who contribute interviews to every show.

Also included in the TSN Radio package again this season are weekly feature interviews on the mid-day show hosted by Matt Sekeres and BCHL Scholarship updates voiced by BCHL broadcasters.

The season premiere of ‘BCHL This Week’ is set for Saturday, Sept. 13 at 9:30 a.m. on TSN 1410.
