Sports Broadcaster & Deejay
Born and raised in the State of Hockey, this Minnesota girl is living the dream!
I have been working full-time in radio broadcasting since 2000 and have been employed by the Beaver Radio Network, a subsidiary of RP Broadcasting in Bemidji, Minnesota since 2007.
Since 2007, I have been the radio play-by-play voice of Bemidji State University women's college hockey on the Beaver Radio Network while my audio is streamed over the video webcast of BSU's home games on BIG+. In 2014, I had the honor of doing the play-by-play for the WCHA Final Face-Off webcast.
When I was a little girl, my dream job was to be a sports broadcaster. My mom and I rarely missed listening to the Minnesota Twins radio broadcasts. She was the biggest influence when it came to my love of sports. We spent many winter nights watching North Stars hockey games on TV and I never missed a Minnesota High School Boys Hockey Tournament game on TV. Of course, my dad and I never missed a Vikings game on TV either. He was the football fan at our house.
On Sunday, October 6, 2018 my dream became a reality when I broadcast my first National Women's Hockey League game as the "Voice of the Minnesota Whitecaps." I was the Whitecaps' home play-by-play announcer during their inaugural and second seasons in the NWHL. After the pandemic, the NWHL became the Premier Hockey Federation and made the shift from in-person broadcasts to remote studio broadcasts on ESPN+. I joined their broadcast crew during the 2021-22 season and am currently working with them this season.
On March 8, 2022 my ultimate dream became a reality when I was asked to do the play-by-play for the New Jersey Devils' special all-female digital broadcast in honor of International Women's Day. Not only did I get to call my first NHL game, the game was very memorable as a very young Devils team rallied from a 3 goal deficit to upset the eventual Stanley Cup Champions Colorado Avalanche 5-3.
Outside of my sports broadcast duties, I host middays on Babe Country 98.3 WBJI-FM from Noon to 3:00 p.m. I love country music! I am also R.P. Broadcasting's Traffic Director for 6 radio stations and a Media Consultant for both radio and digital marketing.
During the BSU sports season, I co-host a weekly coaches show every Wednesday night from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on WMIS-FM 92.1 The River. I also do weekly interviews with Bemidji State's female athletes for our Beaver Fever Friday segments on WMIS-FM 92.1 The River.
In my spare time, I am the owner, designer and milliner for Angeline Alice Millinery. I make hats and fascinators for one of my other favorite sporting events, The Kentucky Derby. You can find my one-of-a-kind designs and details about my business HERE.
I've been working full-time in radio broadcasting for over 20 years in a multitude of roles: sports broadcaster, deejay, traffic director, advertising sales, digital marketing consultant, show co-host, producer, commercial production, assistant music director, administrative assistant.
I am currently employed by RP Broadcasting, Paskvan Digital & The Beaver Radio Network (2004-present) in Bemidji, Minnesota.
In September, I began my 15th season as the radio play-by-play voice for Bemidji State University DI Women's Hockey for the 2022-23 WCHA season.
During the summer of 2022, I was the play-by-play announcer for the inaugural season of MN Aurora FC of the USL W League on WCCO/CBS News Minnesota.
On March 8, 2022, I was the play-by-play announcer for the NHL's New Jersey Devils digital broadcast on International Women's Day.
