Meet The Penguins’ New Anthem Singer

PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) -If you’ve been to a Penguins game in recent history, you’ve probably heard the National Anthem sung by Jeff Jimmerson, who, with very few exceptions, has been the regular singer for years.

Army Reservist Sgt. Bob Timney got the call up for Game 1 when Jeff was out of town, and his version of the anthem, where he gets the whole crowd singing along, has been moving both the Penguins and the crowds.

KDKA Radio’s John Shumway talks to Sgt. Bob Timney about his recent fame and what Jeff Jimmerson thinks of temporarily losing his gig.
