The Whitecourt Wolverines former play by play announcer has made an exciting announcement today. With the upcoming 2018-2019 season ahead of us, the Wolverines will not have their talented returning announcer Andrew Peard, to call the games this season.
I spoke with Andrew on the phone earlier about the move and announcement.
Peard has called just under 300 Wolverine games in the 4 seasons he has been here.
Peard also went on to say that he has a lot of people he would like to thank, especially XM 105FM and Neil Shewchuk who gave him his first opportunity in radio as well as the owners of the Wolverines Brent and Tracy Stark.
