ECHL minor league hockey WHEELING NAILERS radio voice BOB ROTRUCK is joining the AHL's ADIRONDACK PHANTOMS as radio play-by-play broadcaster, replacing OWEN NEWKIRK. The two teams are both owned by ROB and JIM BROOKS.
"BOB has really done a great job for us over the past few years," said JIM BROOKS. "We are very proud and excited to be able to offer him this promotion. He deserves it!"
"I'm so thrilled to get this chance and am extremely flattered that ROB and JIM think enough of my abilities to extend this offer," said ROTRUCK. "It's also a pretty emotional time for me. The fans of WHEELING have been so gracious and welcoming I just can't say enough good things about them. I will be carrying lots of fond memories from my time with the NAILERS."
The PHANTOMS are heard on PAMAL Classic Hits WNYQ (Q101.7)/QUEENSBURY-GLENS FALLS, NY.
