Tom Callahan Joins Nashville Predators Broadcast Team
Ten-season veteran will call action for 55 radio broadcasts,
represent the team in the community

Nashville, Tenn. (September 17, 2008) – Nashville Predators President of Business Operations Ed Lang announced today Tom Callahan, a sportscaster with 10 seasons of professional hockey experience, will join the Predators broadcasting team for the 2008-09 season. Callahan will contribute to all Predators radio broadcasts in various capacities, as well as serving as a voice and face in the community.

The Predators announced previously that they will produce separate television and radio broadcasts of their games in 2008-09. Callahan will assume radio play-by-play duties on the Predators radio network for the 55 Predators games aired on FSN South, while contributing to the other 27 broadcasts as a rink-side reporter for all games that are not televised (or are televised exclusively by a national rightsholder). For those games, the 11-season team of Pete Weber (play-by-play) and Terry Crisp (color commentator) will be in the radio booth.

A native of Lackawanna, N.Y., Callahan comes to Nashville from the American Hockey League's Peoria Rivermen, where he served as director of broadcasting and media relations in 2007-08. Prior to working for Peoria's team, Callahan spent four seasons with the Augusta Lynx of the ECHL, and three seasons with the Elmira Jackals of the then-United Hockey League (now International Hockey League), serving in similar positions. He also has experience in then-Western Professional Hockey League (now Central Hockey League) and in minor league baseball.

WGFX 104.5-FM (The Zone) and WRQQ 97.1-FM (97.1 RQQ) will be the flagship stations of the team's radio network for 2007-08, serving as the Middle Tennessee radio home of the Nashville Predators and the National Hockey League.

WGFX will carry all regular season and post-season Predators games that do not conflict with its previous broadcast commitments, while WRQQ will broadcast the balance of the schedule. All regular-season and playoff games will include a post-game show, with home post-game shows emanating from the Suite Level Club inside the Sommet Center.
