PENTICTON, BC – The Penticton Vees Jr. A Hockey Club will have a new voice calling games in September, as longtime broadcaster Fraser Rodgers, is stepping down from his post as Director of Broadcasting & Media Relations.
Rodgers spent six years (2011-2017) in Penticton, calling over 474 regular season and playoff games, including four BCHL Fred Page Cup Finals, two Western Canada Cups and Three RBC Cups, including the Vees 2012 national championship in Humboldt, Saskatchewan.
“First and foremost, I want to thank the Vees’ ownership group and Fred Harbinson for giving me the opportunity to work for such a prestigious organization for the last six years. I also want to thank the incredibly passionate and loyal fan base for their tremendous support; it was an incredible experience and one I will cherish forever,” said outgoing broadcaster Fraser Rodgers.
“Fraser has been a huge part of our fans experience over the past 6 years. His voice has connected our fans & families from all over North America and he will be greatly missed. We wish Fraser the best of luck!” said Vees president, head coach & general manager Fred Harbinson.
The organization would like to congratulate Fraser on his tenure in Penticton and wish him all the best in his future endeavours. The Vees are expected to announce a replacement in the coming days.
