Pete Parker

Pete Parker

Lionel Dyke "Pete" Parker (September 7, 1895-February 11, 1991) was a Canadian radio announcer.

He served overseas in World War I from 1916 to 1919.

On March 14, 1923, Parker made the world's first complete play-by-play radio broadcast of a professional ice hockey game. The broadcast was carried by CKCK Radio in Regina, Saskatchewan. The game, held at Exhibition Park in Regina between the Regina Capitals and the Edmonton Eskimos, was a meeting of two Western Canada Professional Hockey League teams. Edmonton beat Regina, 1-0.

This broadcast was officially recognized by Canada's Sports Hall of Fame in 1972. (For many years, it was thought that Parker's broadcast preceded by 8 days the March 22, 1923 first broadcast by Hockey Night in Canada's Foster Hewitt. However, Hewitt's first broadcast was actually made on February 16, 1923. Norman Albert actually made hockey's first broadcast on February 8, 1923.
