Raleigh, N.C. — The Carolina Hurricanes announced Friday that Chantel McCabe will join the Canes' television broadcast team as sideline reporter/host. McCabe will join play-by-play voice John Forslund and color analyst Tripp Tracy for all Hurricanes games on FOX Sports Carolinas.
“Adding Chantel to the broadcast will help bring fans closer to the team and make watching the games on television an even better experience,” said Rutherford.
McCabe comes to Carolina from Springfield, MA, where she has served as a general assignment reporter for WGGB-ABC 40. Along with her work at ABC 40, the New Hampshire native has served as a sideline reporter for Major League Lacrosse (MLL), and covered events for the New England Sports Network (NESN) and Hockey East. McCabe graduated from the University of New Hampshire where she covered news, politics and sports for the school’s student-run newspaper The New Hampshire.
The Carolina Hurricanes open their 2012 exhibition schedule on Sept. 26 at Columbus, and play their first exhibition home game on Sept. 28 against the Nashville Predators.
