Penguins Podcast: A Great Day for Hockey Talk with Mike "Doc" Emrick

by Pittsburgh Penguins @penguins / Penguins Podcast

What makes a Hall Of Fame Broadcaster? First and foremost, passion. Years of dedication and excellence. And a special voice quality that separates him from all the rest. In this episode of A Great Day for Hockey Talk, Paul Steigerwald sits down with Mike "Doc" Emrick, the voice of hockey in America.

Highlights include:

  • Doc recounts his early days as a cub reporter covering the Penguins for the Beaver County Times
  • His subsequent rise through college and minor league hockey to the big time in the mid eighties.
  • Doc explains why he got hooked on hockey, and reveals the secret to his longevity.
  • Doc explains why he loves calling the game today as much as he did when he got his first play by play job in Port Huron, Michigan in 1973.  

All episodes of A Great Day for Hockey Talk are available on SoundCloud, iTunes, and Google Play.
