Morley Jaeger – Meritorious Service
Morley Jaeger was long time sports director of CKBI Radio and Television until 1986. During that time he was the voice of the Raiders as the play-by-play man bringing home team highlights such as the team’s Memorial Cup and Centennial Cup Championships to local listeners.
His trademark words at the conclusion of each of his broadcasts will always be remembered – “Now You Know the Score.”
A highlight of Morley’s broadcasting career came away from the hockey rink. He was the first play-by-play commentator of the Canadian Men’s Curling Championships with complete coverage end to end on closed circuit television.Away from broadcasting, Morley helped fundraise to send Prince Albert’s Dave and Brad Tippett’s mother to see them play for Team Canada, and to send Canadian wrestler Joseph Tesar to the Los Angeles Olympics, which he was not able to attend.
Morley also took on such volunteer jobs as secretary of the establishing committee for the Centre Four Hockey League for AA minor hockey teams in north and central Saskatchewan and was the first commissioner of the Kinsmen Minor Football League. He also used his on-the-job knowledge to help as publicity chairman with such events hosted in Prince Albert as the Canadian Mixed Curling Championships and Canadian Ladies Golf Championship.
Morley served two terms as city councilor, from 1988 through 95 and was chairman of the parks and recreation committee during that time! During those years, he was largely involved in the development of the recreation and parks facilities in the city, in particular serving on the 1992 Saskatchewan Summer Games Board of Directors.
Morley’s love of sport history was evident as he served as a board member of the Prince Albert Sports Hall of Fame from 1989 – 97.
The Prince Albert Sports Hall of Fame is proud to recognize Morley’s contribution to sports in the city and surrounding area with his induction in the meritorious service category.
Inducted into the Prince Albert Sports Hall of Fame in 2004.
