For more than 40 years, Jay Rokeach’s booming voice has been synonymous with the University of Miami’s athletic teams. Whether it’s baseball, football or basketball, Rokeach has become the “Voice of The U.” Rokeach is about to be the voice of hockey in South Florida, as well.
Rokeach has been named the Panthers newest public address announcer, replacing Mitch Phillips. Former PA announcer Bill Murphy will remain in his role as in-arena host. Rokeach called Saturday night’s UM-Ohio State game in Miami Gardens and hopes to remain with the university despite a few conflicts with the Panthers.
