ALTITUDE SPORTS ANNOUNCES NEW AVALANCHE PLAY-BY-PLAY ANNOUNCERS
DENVER—Altitude Sports & Entertainment announced today that they have named Marc Moser the new Colorado Avalanche television play-by-play announcer and hired Conor McGahey to replace Moser as the radio play-by-play announcer on Altitude Sports AM 950.
Moser brings over a decade of experience to the broadcast, previously acting as the team’s radio play-by-play announcer for 11 years. His ties to the organization date back to the 1997-98 season when he became the in-studio host and producer of all Avalanche radio broadcasts. He worked in that capacity for seven years until the end of the 2003-04 campaign. During that time, Moser was also a daily sports talk show host and the host of the highly popular “Avalanche Talk” on the network flagship sports station.
Moser returned to the Avalanche broadcast team as a television studio host and analyst on Altitude in 2006-07 to move into the Avalanche radio booth in 2007. In 2016-17, he returned to host the Marc Moser Show every weekday afternoons on Altitude Sports AM 950 and, in addition to his new role, will continue his daily talk show.
“We are thrilled to have both Marc Moser and Conor McGahey calling Avalanche games on television and radio, for many years to come,” said Executive VP and General Manager/Executive Producer of Altitude Sports & Entertainment Kenny Miller. “Marc has established himself as one of the top NHL Radio personalities in the league. We are very lucky to have Mose bring over those talents to the TV side. It’s exciting to have Conor’s tremendous talents calling games for the team he grew up rooting for.”
McGahey, spent more than 10 years in the KSE family working with the Colorado Avalanche and as the play-by-play announcer for the Colorado Rapids, Colorado Mammoth and University of Denver hockey.
McGahey most recently was with AT&T SportsNet as the pregame and postgame host of the Vegas Golden Knights, Colorado Rockies and play-by-play announcer for Mountain West football and basketball. The Denver Broncos hired McGahey as the public address announcer for the team’s home games at Broncos Stadium at Mile High, beginning with the 2016 NFL season.
