CALGARY, AB – The Stockton Heat announce today that Rob Kerr, a broadcasting veteran with more than two decades of experience behind the microphone, will serve as the team’s play-by-play voice for home games during the 2020-21 season.
“I am really happy to step in and help tell the Stockton story from the Heat’s temporary home,” said Kerr. “This is an exciting team with some future Calgary Flames that are going to make for fun broadcasts.”
Kerr, who is currently the Assistant Manager of Business Operations of the WHL’s Calgary Hitmen, had stepped back from the microphone in 2018. A long-time voice in Calgary sports, Rob previously hosted Calgary Flames Radio on the Sportsnet 960 the FAN, and was the television voice of the Flames, on Sportsnet, for three seasons.
The Heat will not travel a broadcaster for road games during the upcoming campaign.
The Heat will begin the 2020-21 season on Sunday, February 21 against the Toronto Marlies, a 6:00 p.m. MST puck drop at the Scotiabank Saddledome. Fans can tune in to Kerr and the AHL affiliate of the Calgary Flames by purchasing a subscription to AHLTV, or by streaming the radio call on Spreaker.
