The Langley Chiefs are excited to announce the hiring of Brandon Astle as the new voice of the Langley Chiefs.
Brandon will take over for Jared Harman starting Friday night in Surrey and will be calling games both at home and on the road. Harman, who has been the lead voice for the past two years in Langley, will slide over into the colour chair.
With the new Langley Events Centre set to open sometime between Christmas and next season, the team felt it was important to put someone in place who could call all sixty plus games, something Harman was unable to do because of his game night responsibilities when the team is at home.
The search lasted nearly all summer as the team reviewed many qualified candidates.
Astle recently completed his Diploma in Broadcasting from Columbia Academy this past July and has experience doing play by play with the Coquitlam Junior Adanacs Lacrosse team as well as covering the Men’s National Ball Hockey Championships last summer. Before his broadcast ambition set in, Brandon enjoyed a brief Junior Hockey career in the KIJHL with the Creston Valley Thundercats.
“We are very excited to have Brandon on board,” Harman said. “He has a very enthusiastic approach to his calls and you can tell how excited he is to be a part of the Chiefs; we think all of our fans will really enjoy listening to him.”
Brandon and Jared will also co-host the club’s weekly radio show, the Chiefs this Week, every Tuesday at East Side Mario’s in Walnut Grove (airs at 7pm on the BCHL Fanzone).
On behalf of the entire Langley Chiefs organization, we would like to welcome Brandon to the team.
