Bob Heethuis
Radio Play-By-Play Announcer

Bob Heethuis returns for his 16th season as a member of the Coyotes’ radio team and his ninth season as radio play-by-play announcer. For seven seasons, “Heeter” served as the studio host for all Coyotes radio broadcasts as well as the “Coyotes Wrap-Up Show” – a post-game call-in show heard on KDUS AM-1060 – now NBC Sports Radio 1060 - with interviews, highlights and analysis.

Prior to becoming the Coyotes’ radio play-by-play announcer, Heethuis could be heard on the air on KDUS AM-1060 during the week updating listeners with news on the Coyotes and the rest of the sports world. He also hosted “Coyotes Weekly” – an hour-long Coyotes magazine show on KDUS AM-1060.

Currently in his 29th year of professional hockey broadcasting, the 52-year-old native of Muskegon, Michigan previously worked as the radio play-by-play voice for the International Hockey League’s Muskegon Lumberjacks and Phoenix Roadrunners from 1984 to 1997. Throughout his 13-year career in the IHL, Heethuis had the opportunity to call over 1,000 regular and postseason games while earning IHL Broadcaster of the Year honors in 1994-95.

Heethuis received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Telecommunication from Michigan State University in 1983. While at MSU, he began his sports broadcasting career by calling Spartans’ hockey, baseball and basketball games.

Bob and his wife, Malissa, reside in Chandler.
