RALEIGH, N.C. (June 1, 2004) – The Hockey Hall of Fame recently announced that Carolina Hurricanes radio play-by-play man Chuck Kaiton has been named the 2004 winner of the Foster Hewitt Award. The award is given annually to National Hockey League broadcasters who make outstanding contributions to their profession during their careers and its winners are selected by the NHL Broadcasters Association.

Kaiton, 52, becomes the 26th NHL broadcaster to receive the distinction since the Hall of Fame began recognizing broadcasters in 1984. He has served as the lone play-by-play voice for the Hurricanes franchise’s radio broadcasts since the team joined the NHL for the 1979-80 season. In addition to his work with the Hurricanes, Kaiton has served as President of the NHL Broadcasters Association for the past 18 seasons (1986-2004).

Kaiton will receive the Foster Hewitt Award following the Hockey Hall of Fame induction ceremonies in Toronto on Nov. 8. For more information on the Hockey Hall of Fame and the Foster Hewitt Award, please visit the Hall of Fame’s website at www.hhof.com.
