Mike Stone will complete a 16-year run as the Beavers’ public-address voice — in football and all but this year in basketball. Brian Brooks has taken over basketball this season and will be the new football P.A. voice next season.
Stone, 66, has a broadcasting background that spans more than four decades. It’s safe to say the Portland resident has a more varied portfolio than any sports announcer in the state’s history.
