CEDAR PARK, TX – The Texas Stars, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the Dallas Stars, announced Tuesday the broadcasting information for the 2012-13 season. The Stars also announced that they will soon be launching an all-new version of their website; in addition, a new online merchandise site is being developed.

New “Voice of the Stars” Owen Newkirk will provide live play-by-play coverage of all Texas Stars games. As in past seasons, the pre-season games will not be broadcast; catch Newkirk in action for the first time during the team’s 2012-13 season opener when the Texas Stars visit San Antonio on October 13th. Each broadcast will begin 15 minutes before the scheduled opening faceoff with the Texas Stars pre-game show, featuring the latest team news, coaches interviews, starting lineups and scratches.

With the sale of several radio stations in the greater Austin area over the summer, the Texas Stars find themselves without a flagship radio station for the upcoming season. As a result, the Texas Stars will be airing their games exclusively online during the upcoming season. The free audio only broadcasts will be available through and Stars fans also have the option to purchase streaming video broadcasts of each Texas Stars game, home and road, via AHL Live.
