A conversation with Rick Jeanneret

By Eileen Buckley


Buffalo, NY – Rick Jeanneret is the longest tenured hockey announcer in the Nation Hockey League.

The Buffalo Sabres continue to celebrate their 40th year. Play by play announcer Rich Jeanneret has been calling the games for 39 of those 40 years.

Jeanneret recently visited our WBFO'S studios and sat down with Eileen Buckley for a chat about his famous hockey calls and the future of the team.
