Steve Mears Joins Bourque on Radio; TV Crew Changes



Steve Mears

The Pittsburgh Penguins’ broadcast picture for the coming season has come largely into focus.

And it is decidedly different than in past seasons.

Steve Mears, who previously had handled the play-by-play duties on TV, will shift to radio, where he will join analyst Phil Bourque.

Josh Getzoff, the former radio play-by-play man, has moved into Mears’ old job on the telecasts.

Dan Potash, rinkside reporter since 2005, will now be the studio host for coverage that will expand to an hour before and after games.

Hailey Hunter, daughter of former Pittsburgh Penguins winger Tim Hrynewich (or “Hrendachuk,” as then-GM Eddie Johnston was inclined to call him), is the new rinkside reporter. She comes off a stint covering golf for the Golf Channel and PGA Tour Entertainment.

There is no word on a replacement for Bob Errey, the long-time analyst on telecasts who was fired Sept. 1.
