Herb Hasenpusch – Public Address Announcer/DJ

Herb Hasenpusch was introduced to ice hockey at 7 years of age when he watched his Grandmother shoot a puck through a small opening in a board as part of a Washington Capitals promotion for their 1975-1976 season. That goal resulted in Herb’s first Caps game in a sky suite at the Capital Center in Largo, MD. In high school, Herb found his way behind a microphone when he had a time slot during the “lunch hour rush” on his high school radio station,  “WJFK”. In his teens, Herb worked doing various jobs at Cabin John and Wheaton Ice Rinks in Montgomery County, MD, including producing 1980s style “mix tapes” for public skating sessions. Herb received his Bachelor Degree in Communication Arts from Salisbury University, where he was involved in college radio station “WSUR”; and where he focused his studies on mass media and the “technical side” of theater. Herb has been around Piney Orchard Ice Arena for the past 10 years where he watched his kids learn and play the great sport of ice hockey. Herb’s “day job” for the past 32 years has been serving the community as a first responder, but his Mom is happy he is finally applying what he learned in college as the Black Bears PA Announcer and arena DJ.

Herb said, “I feel very fortunate to be a member of the game day operations team for the North American Hockey League Maryland Black Bears. I love knowing the small part I play helps create a family fun and exciting ice hockey atmosphere.”
Herb has been with the Maryland Black Bears since the 2018-2019 inaugural season.
