Regular listeners of "Montana Sports" are continually amazed by the historical detail and human perspective that Rocky Erickson brings to his show. A walking encyclopedia of Montana athletic history, Erickson features the voices of dozens of guests on his show each month, along with the scores and the highlights of Montana sporting events, large and small.
"Mine is not just a ’Scoreboard Show,"’ Erickson is quick to point out, "because the daily papers have all the scores each morning, and chances are the local radio station probably had them on as soon as the game was over last night. What they might not realize is that the 34-point performance by that local Class C athlete was his career best, and that his previous best was against the same opponent two seasons ago, or that the kid’s Dad held the school high-point record for 12 years on that same court! If I can get the emotion of both the athlete’s and his Dad’s voice on the same show... then we’ve got something worth listening to!"
Rocky Erickson is eight-time winner of the "Montana Sportscaster of the Year" award from the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association, solid evidence of the respect that his peers have for his work! New features Erickson has developed on the Northern Sports Network include Montana-North Dakota All-Star Football Game, East-West Montana Shrine Game, network broadcasts of the Montana/Wyoming High School All-Star Basketball games and more!
