A new chapter for Kelowna Rockets radio

Kent Simpson - Colour Analyst AM 1150 
I was honestly taken aback by the number of responses from those interested in joining me in the broadcast booth upon the announced departure last week of colour analyst Gord McGarva.

I am pleased to announcement this morning that Kent Simpson is the new colour commentator on our AM 1150/Kelowna Rockets home broadcasts this season.

The 40 year-old is no stranger to the Western Hockey League or the broadcast booth. After seven seasons as the colour analyst with the Edmonton Oil Kings, Simpson left the Alberta capital last fall for the Okanagan where he joined his brother,Todd, in West Kelowna as a successful realtor.

The North Vancouver resident has a solid hockey resume, having played pro in the ECHL with the Johnstown Chiefs, suiting up for the Canadian National team and playing overseas in Denmark, England and Britain.

I am looking forward to Simpson joining me in his Kelowna Rockets radio debut on opening night (September 25th) against the Kamloops Blazers when the team raises a Western Hockey League banner high into the rafters at Prospera Place.
