The Dallas Stars announced today that Jeff Kovarsky (Jeff K) has been hired as the club’s public address announcer for the 2012-13 NHL season. Kovarsky will handle all in-arena announcements at American Airlines Center for each of the club’s home games.
No stranger to the Stars’ organization, Kovarsky has worked several capacities for the team since 2005, first as music director, and most recently as an in-arena host. He will be the club’s third public address announcer since the Stars moved to Texas in 1993.
"I am honored and privileged to continue my career with the Stars and would like to thank Mr. Gaglardi and Mr. Lites for this opportunity,” said Kovarsky. “I look forward to serving the team and fans with the same passion, excitement, and professionalism established by my longtime friend and mentor, Bill Oellermann.”
Aside from his duties with the Stars, Kovarsky, better known as “Jeff K,” is a well-known radio personality in the DFW Metroplex. He can be heard weekends on KDGE 102.1 "The Edge". He's also production manager for Clear Channel Media and Entertainment's Dallas cluster, and is responsible for commercial production on 102.1 The Edge, 102.9 Now, 106.1 Kiss FM, 97.1 The Eagle, and Lonestar 92.5.
