New "Voice" of the a Penguin?

That's right folks...the new play by play man of the Hershey Bears is Scott Stuccio, formerly the play by play man of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. 

I am kind of indifferent about this whole situation.  I can't say as though I have listened to many AHL games other than Bears games over the years and I always listened to John Walton's calls for those games.  So I can't say what kind of game he calls.

I will say that the Bears were expected to get tons of applications so if Stuccio is who they feel is the best person for the job then I am willing to give him a chance.

It will be different listening to Bears games without Walton making the calls but I am sure we will all get used to Stuccio at some point.

Scott Stuccio, welcome to the Bears!

Stuccio is a great man and better broadcaster. Great replacement for Walton. He's not as ***hole like Tom Grace..

I can't help but think that Scott himself left that "anonymous" comment. Stuccio is the worst announcer! He does not know how to interview players or ask interesting questions. He comes across as bragging about who he knows/has talked to/walked past. I couldn't stand listening to him in Wilkes Barre and several fans who had been listening to games for years stopped completely. He does not have the voice for radio either - he's screechy. I don't know Tom Grace personally - to call him names - but he was friendly with fans, a wealth of knowledge/stories and had the perfect pitched voice for broadcasting. I enjoy his "Gracisms" too, as we call 'em in WB. Hershey can have Stuccio; I just wish he had left sooner!
