Alex Faust will make his debut as the Los Angeles Kings television play-by-play announcer on Thursday evening’s Fox Sports West telecast of a preseason game against the Arizona Coyotes at Staples Center.
The 28-year-old Faust succeeds Bob Miller, who retired at the conclusion of last season after 44 seasons with the NHL team.
Faust most recently served as a college football and basketball announcer with ESPNU and Fox Sports, and called this year’s NCAA men’s Final Four on the Westwood One radio network.
Faust previously called hockey games on NBCSN and NESN, and served as the radio broadcaster for the American Hockey League’s Utica Comets.
Faust was the voice of Northeastern University men’s basketball and was one of the youngest play-by-play broadcasters to call an NCAA tournament game; he was 26. He was also the radio broadcaster for the Staten Island Yankees minor league baseball team for two years.
Faust will also use his four years of experience as a business analyst/consultant with a major accounting firm by working with the team’s Data Intelligence department to help develop analytics and information that can be delivered on Kings telecasts. He will also work with the Kings Digital Media and Community Relations departments.
