Lukas is joining fellow Syracuse Crunch co-workers – Brigid Heslin and Stef Gale, as they face their fears to go Over the Edge and raise funds for McMahon Ryan Child Advocacy Center.
Favale joined the Crunch full time prior to the 2017-18 season after interning with the team from 2012 to 2014. He most recently served as the director of broadcasting and media relations for the Elmira Jackals of the ECHL during the 2016-17 campaign before being hired as the director of broadcasting/account executive by the Adirondack Thunder.
As the voice of the Crunch, Favale broadcasts play-by-play for all Crunch games on the team’s official radio station, ESPN Radio Syracuse, along with hosting “The Shootout Show” live at the Upstate Medical University Arena following home games. He also hosts the one-hour “Crunch Weekly” show at Tully’s Good Times with special guests on select Thursday nights throughout the season. In addition to his broadcast responsibilities, Favale serves as the team’s official statistician and prepares all game notes while selling ticket packages, single game tickets and booking groups.
Prior to his time in Elmira, Favale called games for the Mississippi RiverKings of the SPHL as their director of broadcasting and media relations from 2014 to 2016. Originally from Allendale, New Jersey, Favale graduated from Syracuse University in 2014.
