Bob McElligott begins his first season as the radio voice of the Blue Jackets after serving as the color analyst on the Blue Jackets Radio Network since the 2009-10 season.
In addition to his in-game duties, McElligott also serves as a host on both the radio pre- and post-game shows, as well as club ancillary programming. He is a regular contributor on BlueJackets.com, the club’s official website, through video and editorial features.
A veteran of nearly two decades in the broadcast booth, McElligott was the play-by-play voice of the Syracuse Crunch, the Blue Jackets’ AHL affiliate, from 2000-09. In addition to calling the action on radio and television for the Crunch, he produced a regular Crunch feature for the Blue Jackets Radio Network and called play-by-play action during several Blue Jackets games during that time.
