Butler Football Returns To XL950 in 2011on July 28th, 2011 at 2:48 am
Big Play Radio Sports is proud to announce that they will broadcast Butler University Football for the 10th consecutive season in 2011. The games will once again be broadcast on XL950, WXLW AM in Indianapolis and will be streamed live at www.bigplayradiosports.com.
Brian Giffin, in his second season as Senior Producer/Engineer for the Atlanta Braves Radio Network will return to call play by play, while Butler Hall of Famer Ken Larose will return as the analyst.
“The run to the PFL and Gridiron Classic titles in 2009 was a culmination of a lot of hard work by the athletic department, coaches, and players.” Giffin said “While 2010 was a disappointing season on the field due to all the injuries, 2011 promises to be another exciting year at Butler with a very solid core of returning players and recruits. Kenny and I are looking forward to getting back in the booth.” Giffin will call his 100th game at Butler in 2011.
“The Bulldogs are excited to be back on XL950 this season.” Added Head Coach Jeff Voris, “Brian Giffin, the voice of Butler Football, along with Butler Hall of Famer Ken LaRose do an outstanding job calling our games. We look forward to another championship effort from our players and with the passion Giff and Kenny bring to the broadcasts it should be another exciting year for Bulldogs Football, both on the field and on the air”
“XL 950 is delighted to once again be the broadcast partner of Butler University Football,” said Pilgrim Communications Vice President & General Manager Randy Tipmore. “We are excited to carry the entire schedule live again in 2011. We value our relationships with the Butler University athletic department, Head Coach Jeff Voris and broadcaster Brian Giffin. The brand of Butler Athletics is coming off another historic year, and we are very proud once again to be a part of what is next for the Dawgs.”
Though Giffin’s role with the Braves Radio Network will once again cause conflicts early in the season, fans will be treated to an outstanding broadcast. “Brian Scott did a fine job filling in for me last year, and while I anticipate missing even fewer games in 2011, he’ll no doubt handle the role very well again this season.”
Butler will open the 2011 season with a non-conference tilt at Butler Bowl vs Albion on Saturday September 3rd. Kick-off is scheduled for 1pm EDT, with pre-game coverage beginning at 12:40.
