Cents Play-By-Play Voice Alex Grebenyuk Joins the Vancouver Giants:


This is posted on the Merritt Centennials website, all the best to Alex with the Giants! What this means the fate is of his Cents Central blog, I don't know, but I'm sure Alex will address that before starting his new job in Vancouver.

My hope is that whomever Q101 decides to hire as the new voice of the Centennials, that person has the desire to do a blog on the Cents much like I did for four years and Alex did for the past six months.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Vancouver, BC - June 28, 2012

The Vancouver Giants are pleased to introduce their new Director of Media Relations & Broadcasting for the upcoming 2012-13 season, Alex Grebenyuk.

Alex, who calls Richmond his home, has spent the last 4 seasons doing play by play for the BCHL's Merritt Centennials, prior to that having called a handful of games for the Burnaby (now Coquitlam) Express. In addition, he has also done volunteer work with the Giants as a reporter, as well as helping Sportsnet with the 2007 Memorial Cup in Vancouver.

"I couldn't be more thrilled to get this opportunity with the Giants," says Grebenyuk. "It's kind of like a dream come true; to be back home on the Coast, and working for the team I've passionately followed from the ground up. It's a superb organization with a great staff, and I can't wait to get started."

"We are very happy to be bringing Alex on board this season", says Vice President of Operations Peter Toigo. "He comes with a great deal of passion and enthusiasm, and has valuable experience having been involved with our team in the past. He has an exciting style of broadcast that I believe our fans will enjoy. We'd like to officially welcome Alex to the Vancouver Giants and look forward to working with him."

Grebenyuk begins his new role with the Giants on Monday, July 16.

The Cents would like to thank Alex for all of his hard work and dedication over the last four seasons and wish him the best of luck in Vancouver.
