Pens broadcaster Getzoff welcomes new baby; Lange returns to booth for Tuesday’s game
Pittsburgh Penguins radio play-by-play broadcaster Josh Getzoff is pleased to announce that his wife, Maddie, gave birth to the couple’s first child.
Their son, Gunnar Hayes Getzoff, arrived early Monday morning, checking in at 7 pounds, 6 ounces and 21 inches.
Penguins Hall-of-Fame broadcaster Mike Lange will return to the radio booth for the first time this season when the Pens host the Bruins at 7 p.m. at PPG Paints Arena.
The 73-year-old Lange has missed most of the season while waiting his turn to get the COVID-19 vaccine. He is now fully vaccinated but recently underwent an unrelated medical procedure that further delayed his return. While filling in for tonight’s game, Lange said, “I am not yet 100% but am happy to get back into the radio booth to help the team.”
Tuesday’s game will mark Lange’s 46th season with the Penguins. He and analyst Phil Bourque will call all the action on 105.9 The X and the Penguins Radio Network.
Getzoff is expected to be back on the radio call on Thursday, when the Penguins face the Capitals in Washington.
