B-Daht brings his "A" game to WSSU football

One of the constants at Bowman Gray Stadium the last few years has been the public-address announcer B-Daht, who in his real life is named Brian McLaughlin.

B-Daht, a 2006 graduate of Winston-Salem State, first started calling games both basketball and football games as a senior in 2005. To say he’s come a long way would be an understatement.

When former athletics director Chico Caldwell hired him he turned him loose on the crowd and in WSSU’s first home game in 2005 against Catawba was rough on the ears. He made fun of the Catawba cheerleaders, mocked the officials and made announcements when the quarterback was calling signals.

B-Daht, who has been a disc jockey at 102 JAMZ, has grown up a lot and does a great job of keeping the fans entertained. I’ve always found him entertaining and he had to be at times when the Rams were 1-10 three years ago. read the rest of John Dell's story here
