Award winning public address announcer Jeff Smith is not only the voice of TCU athletics, but also one of its biggest fans.
“I’m just as big a fan as anybody, especially for the local team, so I try to keep it all in perspective, try to be a fan but keep it all in check,” Smith said. “The [public address] announcer is really a reporter, and is really supposed to report the game to the fans and let the athletes be the show.”
Yet Smith has been a part of the show, whether he will admit it or not, for the past 10 years announcing baseball, women’s volleyball, soccer and swimming and diving for the Horned Frogs. He is also in his eighth season as the internal public address announcer, announcing for the working media during TCU football games. read full story here
