Rod Phillips (born September 9, 1941) is a retired radio broadcaster for 630 CHED in Edmonton, Alberta. Phillips is best known as the play-by-play man of the World Hockey Association and National Hockey League's Edmonton Oilers since 1973, succeeding longtime Edmonton Eskimos broadcaster Bryan Hall despite having no experience in the field. He is most famous for his loud, long scream of "scoooooooooores!!!!!", considered a classic for Oilers fans. Many fans attending games brought their radios to Rexall Place to listen to his broadcasts, and many people watching games on television turned down the sound to listen to his coverage. In 2003, Phillips received the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award, and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.Rod Phillips was born in Calmar, Alberta in 1941. Prior to being a hockey broadcaster, Phillips hosted Edmonton's first-ever late-night television show in 1967.Rod Phillips is the uncle of Ottawa Senators defenceman Chris Phillips.Phillips announced his retirement on May 28, 2010.
