Port Huron names Stuckey broadcaster

The Port Huron Fighting Falcons and Liggett Communications - RadioFirst are proud to announce they have signed an agreement that gives WHLS/X (1450 and 1590 AM) the rights to broadcast play-by-play for the team's inaugural season.

Fan favorite Dennis Stuckey will broadcast all the home and away games.

Stuckey has done play-by-play in Port Huron for 11 years, announcing games for the Border Cats, Beacons, Flags and most recently the Icehawks of the IHL. Stuckey will travel with the team to provide broadcasts for all regular season and post-season games.

Stuckey came to Port Huron in 1995 and has been the sports director for Radio First for all but two of the last 16 years. In 13 seasons of announcing professional hockey in five different leagues, Stuckey has called 998 games.

“I am looking forward to a new chapter in the history of Port Huron hockey,” Stuckey said. “The junior game should prove to be an energetic and exciting brand to broadcast.”

“We’re very happy to be able to bring Mr. Stuckey in to broadcast our games this season,” said Mike Reed, media/public relations manager for the Fighting Falcons. “Dennis has always been extremely popular for his work in Port Huron and I know of more than a couple fans who actually bring radios to the games to be able to hear his calls.”

WHLS has broadcast hockey since the original Port Huron Flags of the IHL made their debut in the 1962-63 season.
