A New Position For Caley Chelios With The Tampa Bay Lightning

TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Lightning announced today they have officially added Caley Chelios as a member of their radio broadcast team, promoting her to the position of radio analyst & digital reporter. She will serve as color analyst for all Lightning road games and will also fill in for team founder Phil Esposito when he is unavailable for home broadcasts.

Chelios’ radio broadcast responsibilities will be her primary focus, working alongside 18-year veteran Dave Mishkin. She will continue to contribute to Lightning content initiatives including serving as a reporter/host for TampaBayLightning.com and LightningVision.  Chelios joined the Lightning in 2016 as the team’s hockey reporter.  She has since grown the role exponentially, being featured on national hockey shows, including becoming a fixture on NHL Network, providing analysis regarding the Bolts across North America.

After unofficially starting her analyst role during live web streams of Lightning Development Camp 3-on-3 Tournament games, Chelios began making appearances with Mishkin on radio during the 2018 preseason and continued for select regular season games during that regular season.

Chelios majored in communications at Northwestern University and earned a Master’s degree in journalism while also playing on the women’s lacrosse team.  She won the NCAA National Championship with the Wildcats in 2012.
