Brian Rogers – Play-by-Play Broadcaster
IceCaps Play by Play Broadcaster Brian Rogers is a native of Halifax, Nova Scotia, who has spent the majority of his 40 year Radio/TV Broadcasting career here in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Rogers first arrived in this province back in 1975 when he worked with CFLN in Happy Valley Goose Bay before moving to St. John’s and 930 CJON in the spring of 1977. After returning to Nova Scotia a year later where he spent 5 years in the Halifax, Kentville and Truro markets, he returned to take a full time position with 590 VOCM in late January of 1983 and has called Mount Pearl, NL home ever since. Amongst his many duties at VOCM included Sports and Music Director posts along with various on-air shifts in the Afternoon Drive and Evening Rock slots before being named as the late George McLaren’s replacement as the voice of the AHL’s St. John’s Maple Leafs prior to the 1994-95 season.
Rogers left VOCM after 16 years in 1998 to become a full time employee of Maple Leafs Sports Entertainment led by Glenn Stanford. He spent three years as Account Executive with the popular Newfoundland Sportsman Outdoors magazine before joining the IceCaps organization in the summer of 2011.
