My name is Charlie Beattie. I am currently the play-by-play voice of the University of Minnesota Men's Hockey team on Bally (formerly Fox) Sports North, as well as a voice for the Minnesota State High School Football "Prep Bowl." I also handle play-by-play and "between the bench" duties for the Minnesota State High School Boys and Girls Hockey tournaments, as well as a multi-sport voice for Augsburg athletics, including football, soccer, basketball, hockey, baseball and softball.
In addition, I spent two seasons as a play-by-play and color commentator, as well as studio host/producer for the St. Paul Saints, served as the director of broadcasting for the Wilson Tobs and served as a producer for CBS Sports/Westwood One.
I am a 2005 graduate of The George Washington University in Washington, DC, where I started my broadcasting career covering men's and women's basketball, first on the student-run WRGW, then later as part of the school's commercial broadcasts on WMET. I provided the student play-by-play broadcast for George Washington's first-ever men's Atlantic 10 Tournament title in 2005.
I currently live in Woodbury, Minnesota, with my wife, Heather, and our four-year-old son, CJ.
