Radio Voice Chuck Kaiton Re-Signs with \'Canes
Hall of Fame broadcaster has been the franchise’s lone play-by-play man since 1979

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has reached a multi-year agreement with Hall of Fame radio play-by-play broadcaster Chuck Kaiton.

“We are very fortunate to have Chuck continue with us for many more years,” said Rutherford. “His popularity and experience give our fans an opportunity to enjoy a great broadcast game after game.”

Kaiton has been the franchise’s only play-by-play radio voice since the team joined the NHL in 1979. The Hockey Hall of Fame announced on May 28, 2004, that Kaiton had been named the 2004 winner of the Foster Hewitt Award, given annually to National Hockey League broadcasters who make outstanding contributions to their profession during their careers. Kaiton became the 26th NHL broadcaster to receive the distinction since the Hall of Fame began recognizing broadcasters in 1984. He received the award following the Hockey Hall of Fame induction ceremonies in Toronto on Nov. 8, 2004.

In addition to his work with the team, Kaiton has served as the president of the NHL Broadcasters Association for the past 21 years (1986-2007). A graduate of the University of Michigan, Kaiton began his broadcasting career in 1969 announcing Wolverine sports. In 1975, he went on to cover the University of Wisconsin sports teams and was named Wisconsin’s sportscaster of the year in 1979.

Beginning with the 2006-07 season, Kaiton’s play-by-play call of every Hurricanes pre-season, regular-season and post-season game will be heard on the Hurricanes Radio Network’s new flagship station, Capitol Broadcasting Company’s WCMC 99.9 FM, “99.9 Genuine Country.”
