Webcast To Get "New" Voices This Season

The Reds will have a new team calling their home games in 2019-2020, but both names should be familiar to fans.

It was announced late last week that Michael Bourgeois and David Kilfoil will be taking over from Brad Janes and Perley Brewer, who both stepped down at the conclusion of last season, to serve as the team's play by play announer and colour commentator, respectively, on home webcasts this season. They will also be heard on UNB's campus radio station CHSR 97.9 FM.

Bourgeois had previously served as a regular fill-in on webcasts, as well as calling play-by-play for CHSR, over the last handful of years. Meanwhile, Kilfoil has been part of Reds radio broadcasts and webcasts for several years.

The duo will begin their era on October 11th when UNB will raise their 8th national championship banner to the Aitken Centre rafters before facing Moncton in the home opener.
