BOSTON, Mass (WWLP) – The St. Louis Blue’s radio play-by-play announcer explained how his previous time in Springfield brought him where he is today.
Chris Kerber in his 14th season as The Blues radio play-by-play announcer.
Before joining the Blues, Kerber spent four seasons calling the action for The Springfield Falcons now known as the Thunderbirds.
Kerber was in Springfield from 1996-1999.
Kerber said he wouldn’t be calling games in The Stanley Cup if it weren’t for his time in Western Massachusetts.
“It’s a special series, it’s been a fun ride. I’m not here without the opportunity given to me by The Falcons in Springfield, so it’s a place that’s near and dear to my heart,” Kerber said.
Kerber told 22News he still visits Western Massachusetts every summer.
