JOHN AHLERS

TV Play-by-Play

John Ahlers is in his 14th season as the Anaheim Ducks’ play-by-play voice on Fox Sports Prime Ticket. He has called 826 regular-season Ducks games since joining the club prior to the 2002-03 season along with numerous NHL games for NBC Sports Network over the previous eight seasons.

Each season, Ahlers is a significant contributor to the team’s award-winning Ducks S.C.O.R.E. program, an educational initiative that impacts over 25,000 elementary school students. He teaches the students the value of teamwork in sports, in school and in life. Using team building exercises that relate to hockey, this interactive presentation demonstrates the importance to work effectively with others to achieve success in all endeavors. Ahlers can also be seen and heard at many of the Ducks community relations events, where he works as host and emcee.

Prior to joining the Ducks, Ahlers was with the Tampa Bay Lightning organization. While in Tampa Bay, Ahlers served as radio play-by-play voice from 1999-02. A 26-year broadcast veteran with 2,018 games behind the microphone (including 1,170 in the NHL), he also worked as host of the Lightning’s television pre-game show and Lightning Weekly, a magazine format program aired on Florida’s Sunshine Television Network.

Prior to his stint with Tampa Bay, Ahlers spent five seasons as the television and radio voice of the International Hockey League’s (IHL) Detroit Vipers. During that time, he also worked as broadcaster of the IHL Game of Week and Turner Cup Finals for Fox Sports Net. While with the Vipers he received numerous awards, including the IHL Broadcaster of the Year in 1995 and Emmys for Best Sports Broadcasts in 1995, 1998 and most recently in 2003 for Best Live Sports Broadcast during Game 4 against Detroit in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

A graduate of Michigan State University, Ahlers has the call for NCAA college football games on SportsUSA Radio Network for the fourth consecutive season in 2015. He has also served as the voice of the Salt Lake Golden Eagles (IHL) and the Louisville IceHawks (East Coast Hockey League) as well as Michigan State and Colorado College hockey.
    
John and his wife, Cindi, were married in the summer of 2008. The couple resides in Trabuco Canyon, CA.
