For the first time in 23+ years fans of the Brandon Wheat Kings will have a new play by play announcer to listen to as earlier today the Wheat Kings released a brief photo statement from Kelly McCrimmon saying they are sorry to see Bruce Luebke move on. It went on to say that Bruce had been a great voice of the Wheat Kings and that he had served as a real ambassador for the organization. Bruce had been the “voice” of the Wheat Kings since 1993 when he replaced outgoing play by play man Darren Dreger who moved from CKLQ radio over to CKX-TV. Prior to joining the Wheat Kings Luebke had spent time as the voice of the Weyburn Red Wings of the SJHL.
In other Wheat Kings, it was reported yesterday that Josh Guenther, the Wheat King trainer of the past 3 seasons, has accepted a job to become the new Athletic Therapist for the Red Deer Rebels of the WHL.
