A Thank You to the People of Flint

As most of you know, I've decided to make a career move to Odessa, Texas to become the play-by-play broadcaster for the Odessa Jackalopes. As I embark on this new journey, I'd like to thank Peter South and Jason Muzzatti, who gave me my first broadcasting gig with the Flint Generals back in 2009-10. I would also like to thank Pat McEachern, Moe Mantha, Bob Bryant, Bobby Dodge, and Firland Management for sticking with me and giving me an opportunity with the Michigan Warriors.

It has been an honor and a pleasure calling the action for the fans of Flint hockey teams for the past four seasons. So many memories were made on and off the ice. I was lucky enough to call back-to-back championship series, (In 2009-10 with the Generals and 2010-11 with the Warriors) and three straight NAHL Top Prospects Tournaments.

I want to thank the Media. Brendan Savage (formerly of The Flint Journal) and Ross Maghielse, Greg Molzon and Ryan Slocum of ABC 12, and Scott Johnson at WNEM TV5. I would like to thank Jerry Noble and the entire Cumulus family for two great seasons on Supertalk 1570 WWCK. Most of all I'd like to thank the fans. It was awesome to see so many fans would come to the rink to support the team, and yet still listen to the game on their transistor radio or smartphone. It made me feel like it was all worth while. I'll miss you, Flint! We had a great ride.
