The Norfolk Tides today announced that Pete Michaud and Jeff McCarragher will serve as the radio broadcasters for the 2017 season. Games can be heard on ESPN Radio 94.1, online through norfolktides.com and via the MiLB First Pitch app.


The 2017 season is Pete Michaud’s 11th as a broadcaster for the Tides on ESPN Radio 94.1.  He is the longtime voice of the Norfolk Admirals hockey team, having spent over 22 years with the organization - including all 15 of their seasons in the American Hockey League. Additionally, Michaud’s resume includes five seasons of play-by-play work as the broadcaster for the Old Dominion Monarchs men’s and women’s basketball programs - including NCAA and NIT tournament games - and 10 years of area high school football play-by-play.


Michaud has been honored three times by the Chesapeake Athletic Club as Hampton Roads Most Outstanding Sports Broadcaster, taking home the honor in 2009, 2012 and 2015.  In 2009, he was selected by the Norfolk Sports Club for the prestigious Abe Goldblatt Award for Outstanding Local Sports Coverage.  In 2012, he was the recipient of the James H. Ellery Memorial Award, an honor presented annually by the American Hockey League in recognition of outstanding media coverage.


Joining Michaud on the air is Jeff McCarragher, who is rejoining the team this season after calling Tides games from 2002-2005. He will primarily work home games and will fill in on select road trips throughout the season. 


A graduate of the University of Kansas, McCarragher previously served as the voice of the College of Charleston Cougars, where he was named the South Carolina Sportscaster of the Year in 2014. He’s worked extensively as a broadcaster for the American Sports Network, and his resume includes a stint as host of the Kansas City Royals pregame show for 610 Sports Radio in Kansas City, MO. He’s also worked for KTKA in Topeka, KS, where he covered the Kansas City Chiefs, Kansas City Royals, University of Kansas and Kansas State University. McCarragher began his broadcasting career for UNC-Greensboro from 1999-2003, and he called games for the Class-A Greensboro Bats of the South Atlantic League from 1998-2002. 


The Tides will play their first game of 2017 at Harbor Park on Friday, March 31st in an Exhibition Game against the Baltimore Orioles. Norfolk will then open its regular season on Thursday, April 6th with a 7:05 contest at Charlotte before kicking off the home portion of its schedule on Monday, April 10th with a 6:35 game vs. Gwinnett.
