Yonkers Raceway track announcer profiled on local TV

Yonkers Raceway track announcer profiled on local TV
Monday, June 23, 2014 - by Frank Drucker, publicity director, Empire City at Yonkers Raceway

Yonkers, NY --- Yonkers Raceway's veteran track announcer, John Hernan, was the subject of a local TV profile this past weekend.

News 12 Westchester stopped up to the booth last Friday night and spoke with the 47-year-old Hernan before the races about his craft, then showed him in action during the early part of the card. The story first aired Friday night, then was cycled through the weekend.

"I was very flattered they did a story about me," said Hernan -- Yonkers' voice since 1999. "I get a thrill out of doing this job every night, and I hope it came across that way."

(Author's aside: News 12 has been a long-time friend of the Raceway, reporting on all of our major stakes races and, as was the case here, any number of features. We appreciate their continued interest.)
