THE BAD NEWS

It regrets me to inform all of you that, effective today, I am no longer employed by Midwest Communications.

The last 12 years have been fun, exciting, and without very many dull moments. I have no regrets, except that I will no long be able to work with and for many people I respect so much.

With this, my time as the "Voice of UMD men's hockey" has come to an end. I want to thank all the fans and parents and families who have supported me over the years. I also want to extend my best wishes to the players, coaches, and support staff I leave behind. It was truly an honor to work with all of them, and I will miss it a great deal. I'm sure I'll see many of you at the rink, as I intend to catch as many games as I can.

Please feel free to contact me via e-mail at bciskie@gmail.com. Thanks again for all your support in all my radio endeavors.

I don't know what the future holds, but I embark on the future with my head held high. Happy Holidays to all of you and your families.

This will serve as my only public comment on this situation, though I will keep you posted about my future.

As stated earlier you will be missed Bruce. However, remember that life goes on and new opportunities will soon arise.

Local sports radio takes another hit, first the local sports talk shows, then Mark , now you. Thanks for all the entertainment over the years! I'm sure you will come back as strong as ever.

What the hell is going on over at that station? A complete freaking joke. Yeah, lets have a local station that doesn't want to broadcast anything local, that makes a hell of a lot of sense. Good Luck Bruce.

I will really miss the excitment you brought to the games. Your passion and love for the game (and Dogs) made your play calling very enjoyable and never boring. And just like Paul Allen you aren't afraid to let the fan in you come out. You will forever be linked in my memory to some spactacular Dog games. I wish you the very best. God Bless.

Will miss your passion for hs hockey on the radio. My brother listened to the 7AA semis last year in Portland, OR, and really appreciated your play by play. Good luck wherever you go!!!
