BCHL Broadcast, Blog, and Twitter Guide:


With the BCHL season starting Friday at the Bauer BCHL Showcase in Chilliwack, I thought I'd compile a list of each team's broadcast information and Twitter links.

I included details on each team's radio broadcast (if they have one). I didn't include links to online broadcasts simply because the BCHL mandates that each team have a home broadcast on FastHockey, so there's guaranteed to be that for each game. A number of teams do have an online audio-only broadcast, which the play-by-play announcers usually tweet the details and links of it out. You can follow each of them by clicking on their Twitter handle.

I've also included how many seasons each play-by-play announcer has been with their respective teams.
