Murray State University Athletics has announced the completion of auditions for new public address announcers for Racer football and men's and women's basketball.
Richard Trey Morris of Murray, Ky., will assume public address responsibilities in the CFSB Center for both MSU basketball teams while Logan Stout of Huntingdon, Tenn., will become the new announcer at Stewart Stadium for Racer Football.
"We began this process thinking we might split the responsibilities as we moved forward," stated MSU associate athletic director Paul Bubb. "In the end, we had two strong candidates and felt this was the best combination we could have for presenting these sports to our fans at home games."
Candidates for the announcing positions were asked to submit a letter of application and a recorded demo tape, which included game announcements as well as the introduction of a game starting line-up. After review of all submitted materials, Morris and Stout were invited to campus for a live audition using written scripts as well as being asked to prepare their own versions of action calls. read full story
