Recent grad is top 10 sportscaster
Tuesday, August 7, 2012
Former KVSC sports director Zack Fisch ’12 was ranked ninth on the Sportscasters Talent Agency of America’s All-America Program and is now the broadcasting and media relations director for the
Dubuque, Iowa, Fighting Saints in the United States Hockey League.
Fisch, an Olathe, Kan., native, is well-known in Central Minnesota as the voice of St. Cloud State University Husky Hockey on KVSC 88.1 FM. During his four years with KVSC he also served as television play-by-play announcer for UTVS Husky Productions, the Granite City Lumberjacks Hockey Club, the Rochester Honkers and St. Cloud Rox baseball teams and Fox Sports North Prep Zone.
“It’s quite humbling to receive this honor. There are a lot of sports broadcasters around the nation, and to know you’re among the best is very exciting,” Fisch said. “This isn’t just big for me, but for
St. Cloud State as well, because it’s the first time SCSU has had an all-American. So, hopefully it helps show how good our mass communications program is.”
Fellow Husky Productions announcer Mike Doyle ’11 also made strides in his professional career by being named digital media coordinator for the Minnesota Wild. Doyle’s job duties include coordinating feature content on Wild.com, writing feature and news stories, photography of hockey games and Wild events, and updating the team’s Facebook page.
