Next time you turn on a Rockford IceHogs game on TV, you will be hearing a new voice.

Recently, if you have been watching the Rockford IceHogs on TV, you might have heard a familiar voice doing the play-by-play. It was a long time broadcaster, Mike Peck. He was the voice of the Hogs for several years. A couple of years ago he stepped out of that position to work in the front office.

Sorry to say, Peck's return to the broadcast booth is only temporary. He's been filling in since his replacement, Bob Mills, left to take a job at Purdue University. Bob did a great job and will be missed, but it has been a nice little flashback for old-school fans to hear Mike again. That will be coming to an end in a couple of weeks and he will be back focusing on his front office spot full time.

According to icehogs.com,

"The Rockford IceHogs announced the hiring of Joseph Zakrzewski as the team’s Broadcaster/Communications Coordinator. He will call his first IceHogs game on Friday, Dec. 15 when Rockford visits San Antonio."

Congratulations to him and the IceHogs. I look forward to hearing him call the games.
