Kevin Sylvester will serve as the emcee of the annual Grand Island Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year awards on Thursday April 23rd. The event will take place at Byblos banquet center on Grand Island from 6-9pm.
The final scheduled broadcast of UB Men's basketball on ESPN 3 is Tuesday March 3rd at 7:00pm. Kevin Sylvester will be in the chair in which he spent most the home schedule for Bulls, the analyst spot next to play by play man Paul Peck. Even though Kevin is used to calling the action, the analyst position was a great fit given his extensive background covering college basketball and the NBA.
Greg Connors of The Buffalo News writes, "This time of year is about as good as it gets for being a sports fan if you are Kevin Sylvester, the co-host with Andrew Peters of 'Sabres Hockey Hotline' on WGR Radio."
