THE VOICE OF THE TIGERS
ETBU Sportsnet | Tiger Vision
The East Texas Baptist University athletic department will broadcast all football games and select men's and women's basketball, baseball, softball, and men's and women's soccer games. Mike Midkiff is the "Voice of the Tigers" and is in his fourth year as the play-by-play caller for football and basketball. Ray Delk enters his second year as the color analyst for ETBU football at all home games. Sports Information Director Adam P. Ledyard enters his first year as a color analyst for away football and basketball games. Below is a release on the broadcasting partnership for ETBU and ESPN 1450.
East Texas Baptist University and KMHT Radio have reached a deal to continue their broadcast agreement for ETBU football games during the upcoming 2012 season.
KMHT will air ETBU football games this season on ESPN 1450 AM and over the Internet at www.kmhtradio.com and on ETBU Sports Net at www.etbu.edu. The games will be aired live over the ESPN 1450 frequency except at times when there may be a conflict with Texas A&M football games, at which time the Tigers will be aired on an Internet-only broadcast.
Mike Midkiff, ETBU Director of Public Relations, will once again provide play-by-play for all Tiger games this fall. ETBU Sports Information Director Adam P. Ledyard will provide color commentary during road games, while ETBU Board of Trustee member Ray Delk will provide color on ETBU's home broadcasts.
Midkiff, who has worked previously with KMHT as an announcer in the booth for Marshall High School football and basketball games, started calling football games as a high school junior for KOCA radio in Kilgore. He also broadcast games for Sam Houston State while a student there.
"What I like about being play-by-play announcer for Tiger football is the dedication I see in the student-athletes who play for the love of the game," said Midkiff, a native of Kilgore.
Ledyard enters his first year at ETBU helping with broadcasting and has done color at previous sports information stops in Texas, Missouri, and Illinois for football, basketball, and baseball. He earned his degree in general speech and broadcasting from Olivet Nazarene University in 1999.
Delk is Vice President of Operations for Good Shepherd Medical Center-Marshall and also serves on the Board of Trustees at ETBU. Delk played college football at Arkansas Tech University from 1981-83 and is a 1981 graduate of Longview High School, where he played for the Lobos.
