Ohio Women’s Basketball is pleased to announce that Grant Burkhardt will be broadcasting the team’s games for the upcoming 2011-12 season. The senior Broadcast Journalism major offers significant experience behind the microphone, having broadcasted sporting events on the radio dating back to his high school days.
Burkhardt will be broadcasting games from both the Convocation Center and on the road this season. His broadcasts can be found on WOUB-AM 1340 or through a live link on OhioBobcats.com.
“It’s very exciting to be working with a program like Ohio,” said Burkhardt. “I believe that the program is on the up and coming and working with Coach Semeka Randall, who played college basketball at a very high level at the University of Tennessee, is going to be a great experience. It should be a lot of fun for me and it should be a lot of fun for the Bobcat fans listening at home.”
Grant has been broadcasting sporting events since high school and has been heavily involved in television and radio coverage of Ohio University athletics. He was the number two broadcaster for Ohio Baseball’s 2011 season, where we worked alongside the “Voice of the Bobcats,” Russ Eisenstein. Burkhardt is also the television host and co-producer of The Bobcat Sports Showcase on WOUB-TV, a weekly television show that covers all Ohio University varsity sports. Grant was the radio voice of the Athens Bulldogs high school boy’s basketball team during the 2010-11 season and was also the radio voice of the Southern Ohio Copperheads, a summer collegiate baseball team that plays its home games at Ohio University’s Bob Wren Stadium.
In addition to broadcasting all of games during the 2011-12 season, Burkhardt will also be the host of the Semeka Randall Coach’s Show, which will air on Monday nights throughout the season on 970 WATH. For a full list of the Coach’s Show dates, please see below:
