Nashville, Tenn. (January 11, 2016) – For the second-straight year, the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association (NSSA) has named Nashville Predators radio play-by-play broadcaster Pete Weber the NSSA Tennessee Sportscaster of the Year. Weber, who has been “The Voice of the Predators,” since the franchise’s first season in 1998-99, is being recognized for the fourth time after winning previously in 2011, 2012, 2014 and now 2015.
With a membership of nearly 800 sportscasters and sportswriters, the NSSA is “a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring, preserving and celebrating the legacy of sportscasters and sportswriters in the United States.” The NSSA’s work includes developing educational, networking, mentoring and scholarship opportunities for students interested in sports media.
Currently in the midst of his 18th season as the Predators play-by-play announcer, Weber has missed calling just two games, and has called over 1,200 regular-season games and all 62 Preds postseason contests during his tenure.
In addition to his work on Predators broadcasts, Weber regularly lends his writing to NashvillePredators.com and offers his insight on local radio and television sportstalk shows.
For the past eight years, Weber has served as an “Insider” on Sirius/XM’s NHL Network Radio and for the past six years has served as co-host of Slapshot Radio.
