The Voice of the Broncos Moves On

Swift Current, SK---The voice of the Broncos’ Jon Keen is moving on after 10 years broadcasting Swift Current Broncos’ games. Keen has accepted a position with NL Broadcasting in Kamloops as play by play of the Blazers and sports reporter.

Keen, from Lanigan Saskatchewan, was the Broncos play by play voice for the past 7 seasons and did colour commentary on the 3 seasons prior to handling the play by play duties for the Eagle 94.1. Keen is among good company in the Broncos’ play by play booth following in the footsteps of Joey Kenward, Regan Bartel, Elden Moberg and John Enns.

Keen admits it’s tough to leave a place he has been for the last decade. “I'd like to thank the Broncos organization and staff, both past and present, for being so accommodating and fantastic to work with these last ten years. It takes the passion of an entire community to make junior hockey flourish in the smallest market in the CHL, and it has been exciting to see that happen here. The city of Swift Current and the Broncos will always be very special to me, and have contributed greatly to the development of my professional broadcasting career."

Head Coach and General Manager Mark Lamb has high praise for Keen. “We’d like to thank Jon for his time and dedication to the Broncos. We are grateful to have an excellent relationship with our local radio stations and Jon was a big part of that. We wish Jon the best of luck in his new endeavors in Kamloops.”

The search for Jon’s replacement will begin immediately. All interested parties can send their information to: The Eagle 94.1.

Greetings From Swift Current

Worst blogger ever!

Thanks for coming back to my little corner of the web. I assume you're hear because you follow Rod Pedersen or Jon Keen and saw that I actually updated.

Blogging for Swift Current Online is now part of my job description. I've been putting my extra time into this. Total shameless cross promotion of my radio show. That's the way it's done in 2010.

I will have much to blog about soon. For now, I'm sure the internet can survive without my bleatings.
