Broadcasting From ‘Home’

from Ben Gotz of the Las Vegas Review-Journal,

Dave Goucher and Shane Hnidy use the same broadcast booth at T-Mobile Arena now that they do for every Golden Knights home game.

That’s about the only part of their job that hasn’t changed this postseason....

Goucher and Hnidy’s view from the booth has changed drastically.

Instead of looking at a sold-out crowd, they’re staring at empty seats. And instead of watching a live hockey game, they’re watching feeds from Rogers Place and trying to describe the action.

Goucher and Hnidy have three monitors in the booth so they can see what’s happening on the ice.

There’s a 50- to 55-inch screen about 2 feet in front of them that shows the “host feed,” provided by the NHL’s national broadcast partners Rogers (Canada) and NBC (U.S.). It’s essentially the same look viewers get.

“Whatever you would be watching on TV, that’s what we’re watching,” Goucher said.

Another monitor helps Hnidy keep up with replays, and the third previews the graphics that AT&T SportsNet shows on the broadcast.
