Veteran Port Huron Sportscaster Dennis Stuckey reached “Old Goat” status this July by covering his 25th Bells Beer Bayview Mackinac Sailboat Race.
Those who sail in the annual Port Huron to Mackinac yacht race for a quarter-century earn the prestigious title of “Old Goat” from the Bayview Yacht Club in Detroit.
WPHM-AM now has an “Old Goat” broadcaster of it’s own, with this year’s race marking the 25th for Stuckey to cover.
Stuckey’s career in Port Huron began in 1995 with WPHM’s (now) sister stations WSAQ-FM and WHLS-AM. Since then, Stuckey has become the region’s most trusted voice for all things related to the Port Huron to Mackinac yacht race.
From the Race’s start on Saturday in lower Lake Huron through it’s finish early the following week on Mackinac Island, Stuckey keeps a close eyes on the boats and files reports for all of Liggett Communication’s Port Huron stations. He has also acquired a vast amount of sailing knowledge over the years, which is particularly prevalent during WPHM’s 12 hour “dockside” broadcast the day prior to the race.
Stuckey also hosts a daily talk show which airs on WPHM weekdays from 5-7pm and is Sports Director for WPHM and the rest of the Liggett Communications stations. Congratulations Dennis!
