After a survey of the league’s 17 broadcasters, Vees play-by-play broadcaster Trevor Miller has been named the 2018-19 BCHL Broadcaster of the Year.

The criteria for the award includes: broadcast skill, professionalism and work beyond the booth.

On top of his broadcasting duties, Miller was responsible for all media relations and creating content for the Trail Smoke Eaters website and social media channels during the 2018/19 season, which will remain his task in Penticton for the upcoming season.

“It’s truly an honour and a humbling experience to be named Broadcaster of the Year, especially with the award being voted on by my peers,” said Miller. “There are great broadcasters in this league that I have gotten the chance to know and befriend over the years, which makes receiving this award truly special.”

Miller started working in the BCHL doing colour commentary for the Penticton Vees from 2013 to 2016, before switching to play-by-play with the West Kelowna Warriors for two seasons. Last year was his first calling Smoke Eaters games before joining the Vees organization again, this time in a play-by-play role.
