by Trevor Potenzino

BINGHAMTON - The Federal Prospects Hockey League Awards Committee announced Binghamton Black Bears, Director of Media Relations & Broadcasting, Brooks Hill, the 2023-24 Broadcaster of the Year. 

“On behalf of the entire Black Bears organization, I am happy to congratulate Brooks on winning Broadcaster of the Year.  We strive to bring success and professionalism to our organization in every aspect and Brooks is the perfect example of that.” - Andreas Johansson

The Wake Forest, NC native joined the Black Bears in October of 2022 after serving as the play-by-play broadcaster of the Wilson Tobs baseball Club in the Coastal Plain League. Brooks has now broadcasted over 100 games with the Black Bears over the past two seasons, along with being the host of the Tully’s Good Times with Coach Show.

"This is an incredible honor to receive this recognition from the league.  I am very thankful the Black Bears gave me this opportunity in 2022 to get my start in hockey. I'd like to thank my broadcast partners, Alex & Cole, for helping me out on the broadcast the past two years; Josh Williams and the entire video team who make me look and sound better than I actually am. Coach Brant Sherwood and the entire team have been extremely welcoming in the locker room and on the road, making this chapter of my life that much more exciting. And I wanted to give Trevor, Bobby, EJ and Kelsie the recognition they deserve for all the hard work they do in the front office each and every day. Without them there is no Black Bears hockey and I am thankful for all the friendships I have made since moving to NY. -Brooks Hill

Brooks follows in the footsteps of former Director of Media Relations & Broadcasting, Rob Lippolis, who won the same honor in the 2021-22 season.  

The Black Bears finish out the regular season with two games, first in Danbury on Friday at 7:30 p.m. Listen to Brooks and watch along on the Black Bears YouTube channel. Saturday at 7 p.m. the Black Bears battle the River Sharks inside the Visions Veterans Memorial Arena.
