(September 30, 2011) Rob Loeber doesn’t have to relocate for his new job. An STAA client, Loeber is the new Broadcaster and Director of Media Relations for the Tulsa Oilers of the Central Hockey League.
“I feel extremely blessed to have this opportunity to be the new voice of the Oilers,” Loeber said. “Broadcasting hockey has been a dream of mine for many years and I’m very grateful to Jeff Lund and Taylor Hall for giving me this chance to be a part of this franchise.”
Loeber is familiar with Tulsa, having spent four years as a sports photographer, reporter, and anchor at FOX23 News. In addition to his work on local television, he has done play-by-play for the men’s and women’s basketball teams at Oral Roberts University and has spent two years as a high school sports correspondent for Maxpreps.com.
Loeber says his STAA Talent Page helped him land the job. “[The STAA] website really provided me a great place to post my resume and demo. “I know the Oilers staff was able to log on and listen to my stuff during the hiring process. You provide such a valuable service.”
Loeber began broadcasting in college at Valparaiso University where he served as a sports and news reporter at the campus radio station, WVUR-FM. After he transferred to the University of Oklahoma, Loeber spent two years as the sports anchor for the nightly, student-run newscast. He graduated from OU in 2004 with a degree in Broadcast Journalism.
“Rob has a wealth of experience in sports media and broadcasting,” says Oilers General Manager Taylor Hall. “He is going to be a tremendous addition to our team.”
