Interview with Union College Hockey radio announcers Matt Dubrey & Brian Unger (part 1 of 2)

Matt Dubrey and Brian Unger are names you know if you're a fan of Union College Hockey. They've been calling the play-by-play and color commentary on the radio (and more recently, local television) for nearly a decade now. By an amazing coincidence I started working for the same company as them back in August (in fact, Matt's desk is only 20 feet away from mine). Being a huge fan of Union hockey I knew I had to sit them down to ask them some questions a lot of us fans have also been wondering. So at the last edition of "Coaches Corner" at Bombers Burrito Bar in Schenectady they agreed to let me pick their brain for a few minutes. Here's what I asked them....

0:45 How long have you been calling Union games and how did you get this job?
2:06 What got you into broadcasting?
3:07 How do you call the play-by-play without getting tongue tied?
4:13 What else is involved in being a radio announcer besides just calling the action?
5:58 What is a typical game day schedule like for you?
7:04 What are some things involved with your job that most people wouldn't know about?
7:50 What's been some of your most memorable moments?
9:07 What's been your reaction to their success this season?
