(August 9, 2018) Rob Sanderson grew up playing hockey and working at an ice rink. For the past 13 years, he has parlayed that passion into broadcasting the sport. The next stop on Sanderson’s journey is Texas where he is joining the Corpus Christi IceRays as Director of Broadcasting & Media Relations.
The IceRays are members of the NAHL.
“We are extremely fortunate to be adding Rob to our team,” said IceRays General Manager Michael Wood. “He is a gifted broadcaster who has also shown himself to be an excellent representative with local media members.”
Sanderson is the third straight STAA member to serve as voice of the IceRays, following Collin Schuck and Alex vonKeudell. When the position opened this summer, the IceRays contacted STAA. They hired Sanderson within a few days.
An STAA member since 2015, Sanderson is a graduate of Temple University in Philadelphia. He spent the past three seasons with the Chicago Steel of the USHL. Sanderson also has American Hockey League play-by-play experience, filling in for the Rochester Americans and Utica Comets.
From 2012-2015, he served as the Americans’ radio host, providing pre-game, intermission and post-game coverage.
Sanderson’s other hockey broadcast highlights include calling the IIHF Under-18 Women’s World Championship in 2010 and 2015.
