Sherry Ross named Devils\' radio color commentator
Newark, NJ – The Devils today completed their radio broadcast team naming Sherry Ross to the position of color commentator.  She previously served the team as radio analyst for three-plus seasons from January 1992 through its 1995 Stanley Cup Championship season, becoming the first woman to broadcast a male professional sports team.  Ross will join play-by-play announcer Matt Loughlin in the Devils/Sports Radio 66 WFAN radio booth.  The announcement was made by Devils’ CEO/President/General Manager Lou Lamoriello.

“We welcome Sherry Ross back to the radio booth,” said Lamoriello.  “She and Matt Loughlin will make an excellent broadcast team.”

Ross re-joins the Devils after 12 years with the New York Daily News sports department, covering both hockey and horse racing.  She also covered the 1994 Stanley Cup Finals as an analyst for NHL Radio, another first for a woman broadcaster.  Ross authored the Hockey Scouting Report for 14 seasons, 1990-91 through 2003-04.  She previously worked as a sports journalist for Newsday, The National, and The Record (Bergen County, NJ) while freelancing for Sports Illustrated, The Hockey News, and Beckett Hockey Monthly.  Ross began her career in 1978 by covering hockey for the Daily Record (Morristown, NJ). 

She has served as secretary-treasurer for the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association for 15 years and has been a member of the board of directors for the National Turf Writers’ Association for the past two years.  In May 2007, Ross was among the inaugural class inducted into the Randolph (NJ) High School Hall of Fame.  She earned a bachelor of arts degree in English from Rutgers University-Newark in 1977.  Ross also attended the University of Illinois where she studied veterinary medicine before choosing journalism as a career.

Ross is a horse racing enthusiast who lists Secretariat as her favorite athlete of all time.  She is a big fan of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band and has attended 100 of their concerts.  Ross was born in Dover, NJ and currently resides in West Orange, NJ.
