Dr. Sport in the Vancouver Sun, Greg Douglas has a story that may encourage those would-be play-by-play talents trying for a toe hold in broadcasting, He cites the case of Brandon Astle, who lost his gig when the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League folded last year. While he hasn’t found another hockey assignment, Brandon has being hired by the National Lacrosse League Vancouver Stealth.
(Ed Note: Could Dr. Sport be making a flawed diagnosis? The club advised us on Dec. 22nd that Brandon will be doing only the Stealth road games, that Jake Elliott and Brad Challoner will be doing the home broadcasts. Brandon’s first coverage will be from Saskatchewan Jan. 15th)
