My name’s Evan Cooke, and I’m the news director for Blackgold Broadcasting, here at 88.1 The One, as well as the play-by-play announcer for our Spruce Grove Saints broadcasts.
I grew up in Toronto and completed all my schooling in Ontario, before smartening up and making the move out west.
Since then, I’ve spent time working in news up in Fort McMurray, as well as out in BC.
Along with news broadcasting, hockey has been a long-term passion of mine.
I’ve been involved with broadcasts in all three provinces I’ve lived in, from the Midget AAA level all the way up to the WHL – including three seasons covering the AJHL with the Fort McMurray Oil Barons.
If you can’t find me in local council chambers, at the hockey rink, or on the golf course – you’re not looking hard enough!
