Justin Scholtes Named Mudbugs' New Radio Voice

BOSSIER CITY, LA -- The Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs of the Central Hockey League today announced the hiring of their new radio play-by-play broadcaster and Director of Media Relations, Justin Scholtes.    

Scholtes joins the Mudbugs after spending four years with Sports Radio 810 WHB in Kansas City, America's largest all sports radio station.  He also served as play-by-play broadcaster for the Kansas City Outlaws of the United Hockey League in 2004-2005.  He will make his debut on October 20th when the Mudbugs travel to Oklahoma City for the 2006-2007 season opener.

"After considering dozens of applicants, Justin was the clear choice to be the new voice of the Mudbugs," said Mudbugs General Manager Jason Rent.  "He impressed us right from the start and is eager to be a part of our team and our community.  We're thrilled to have him joining our organization and I know our fans will enjoy the enthusiasm he brings to the broadcasts."   

In 2004-2005, Scholtes produced a radio show with an all-star cast of talent including Royals Hall of Fame player, George Brett, and Kevin Harlan of CBS Sports.  He also worked as the play-by-play broadcaster for UMKC Women's basketball in 2005-2006 and hosted "Drop the Puck," an all hockey radio program on Hot Talk 1510 KCTE.  The Kansas City native is a 2002 graduate of the William Allen White School of Journalism at the University of Kansas.

The Mudbugs are currently preparing for their 10th anniversary season, which will feature the 2007 Central Hockey League All-Star Game at the CenturyTel Center on January 17, 2007.  Season ticket packages and corporate partnerships are currently available by calling 318-752-BUGS or by visiting www.mudbugshockey.com
