(September 9, 2019) Press Release — The Peoria Rivermen have announced the hiring of Andrew Mossbrooks as their new Director of Communications/Broadcasting.
Mossbrooks, 24, replaces Brad Kupiec, who will begin pursuing a degree in law.
A native of Sunbury, PA, Mossbrooks moves to Peoria after holding a similar role with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights in the North American Hockey League.
In addition to junior hockey, Mossbrooks also served as an assistant to the Philadelphia Flyers media department; an opportunity he used to propel himself into television play-by-play for the Philadelphia Wings of the National Lacrosse League last season.
“I am thrilled to join such a historic franchise like the Peoria Rivermen,” says Mossbrooks. “This is an iconic brand throughout the minor league hockey community.
“NHL broadcasters have come through these doors and I can’t wait to sit in the chair that so many great voices have before me. I can’t thank Bart Rogers enough, along with Brad Kupiec, and I’m excited to experience the passion of this fanbase inside the Peoria Civic Center come October.”
“Andrew has a tremendous amount of video broadcast skills, which will open the door for more in-depth coverage of the team than ever before,” says Rivermen COO Bart Rogers. “We look forward to upgrading our coverage both on and off the ice with more video/game day content of pre game interviews, weekly Coaches segments and post game interviews broadcast on all of our social media platforms.”
