Well, the "Off-Season" is almost over with fall sports starting in a couple of weeks. The University put out the news last week that we will be doing play-by-play of a majority of men's and women's soccer home games as well as home conference volleyball games on the Memphis All-Access package. I'm really looking forward to calling these sports as well as doing the weekly coach's updates. Hope you've enjoyed the three preview shows we've already done.
I have to say I'm excited about adding these sports to the women's basketball and baseball I already call. Although I've got other duties with the network and local radio stations, my passion is doing play-by-play so doing five sports for the University will be a blast.
I also have to credit to Brandon Kolditz, assistant media-relations director, for his work. Brandon and I have been talking about doing this for over a year and he did the leg-work on finding out a way to make it happen. I also want to thank videographer Darby Dunnagan and her staff for their willingness to help with this project.
I haven't checked all the sites for the 300+ division one schools, but I have to think our live coverage of Tiger sports has to be among one of the most comprehensive. Between our Tiger Radio Network, WUMR broadcast, and All-Access package, we'll provide play-by-play and coach's show's for EIGHT sports
