Tyler Bieber Memorial Scholarship

After the news of the horrific accident that claimed 16 lives of the Humboldt Broncos hockey players, coaches & staff -- through the eulogies, newspaper stories, radio/tv coverage, the world would learn that play-by-play announcer Tyler Bieber had the special qualities of  passion and dedication for the job of sports broadcasting!
And even more impressively, he was one of those rare  individuals who by his own initiative, launched his own broadcast career without any broadcast training, but simply by sheer determination and natural raw talent.
Tyler started down the path of a professional broadcast  career in an entry-level station.  He would be in the station  at 5:00am  preparing the morning sportscast.  He knew his information so well that co-workers observed him doing an entire sportscast from just a handful of scribbled notes.  Announcing play-by-play for the Humboldt Bronco hockey team was especially an “adrenalin rush” for Tyler. 
What he could have accomplished and what his life could have achieved, we are only left to wonder.  But most certainly with his talent and spirit, clearly his accomplishments would have been extraordinary.



It is with recognition of the talent and commitment to a career in broadcasting demonstrated by Tyler Bieber, that Western Academy Broadcasting College has created the Tyler Bieber Memorial Scholarship.

Scholarships will be awarded yearly to applicants who best represent the qualities that have so clearly been demonstrated by Tyler Bieber.

The ongoing scholarships will provide a lasting legacy to the memory of sports announcer Tyler Bieber and the 15 other Humboldt Broncos hockey team & staff.
