There was definitely a BCHL flavour when TEAM Radio announced the 2nd Annual Paul Carson Broadcast Awards on Friday.

Two BCHL broadcasters - one former and one current - were among the winners while a former BCHL player was also honoured with an award.

Jeff Paterson, who calls BCHL games alongside yours truly on TEAM 1040, was named Best Sport Radio Reporter and Jim Hughson, who worked for CKIQ on BCJHL Kelowna Buckaroos broadcasts from 1976-79, was awarded Best Play-By-Play Commentator.

Former Penticton Knights forward Ray Ferraro - who had a 1258 game NHL career with Hartford, New York Islanders, New York Rangers, Los Angeles, Atlanta and St. Louis - received the award as Best Colour Commentator.

Here's the story, with all award winners and runners-up, as posted yesterday on TEAMRadio.ca:

Farhan Lalji of TSN and Don Taylor of Sportsnet are among the repeat winners in the 2nd Annual Paul Carson Broadcast & Media Awards designed to recognize excellence in sport broadcasting and journalism in Vancouver.

Lalji is a veteran Vancouver-based reporter for TSN and is best-known for his work on the CFL on TSN.  Taylor, an alumnus of the old CKVU Sportspage team of which Paul Carson was Sports Director, fronts Sportsnet Connected in prime time week nights on Sportsnet Pacific.
