I got a note from the Washington athletic department today that they received 45 resumes for the open football public address announcer position.
A department committee, headed by its marketing staff, will review the resumes, listen to the MP3 files of the applicants and trim the list to a final few who will be invited to try out, probably at the stadium.
The position came open when Lou Gellermann retired last fall after 35 seasons as the stadium voice of the Huskies. Men’s basketball announcer Eric Radovich took over on an interim basis and remains a candidate for the full-time position.
UW expects to have the new announcer selected by mid-April in time to debut at the football spring game on April 26.
