A new voice for the Bron­cos

Times Colonist - - Canada -

HUMBOLDT, Sask. — A plan to bring hockey broad­cast­ers in from across the coun­try to call Humboldt Bron­cos games this season will not go ahead.

In­stead, lo­cal ra­dio sta­tion CHBO Bolt FM has hired an up-and-com­ing Win­nipeg broad­caster to take over for Tyler Bieber, its play-by-play voice who was killed along with 15 oth­ers in last April’s Bron­cos bus crash.

Rory McGouran, 27, said he knew af­ter the crash that he wanted to be part of the ra­dio sta­tion’s team.

“Peo­ple ask me how you fill Tyler’s shoes. You can’t. No one can,” McGouran said. “I’m not Tyler, no one can wear those shoes.”

Bieber, 29, was in his first year call­ing games for the Saskatchewan Ju­nior Hockey League Bron­cos. He also coached high school foot­ball and bas­ket­ball in the small Saskatchewan city.
