BRUAN HANNI is returning to the UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS as the school's radio football and men's basketball play-by-play announcer and host of coaches' shows. The KU graduate, former KU baseball and women's basketball voice, and creator of "ROCK CHALK SPORTS TALK" at GREAT PLAINS MEDIA News-Talk KLWN-A/LAWRENCE, which now airs on the JAYHAWK RADIO NETWORK, has been the voice of TEXAS TECH sports since 2012. He replaces the retired BOB DAVIS on the JAYHAWK/IMG RADIO NETWORK.
"Naming a replacement for an institution like BOB DAVIS was a very difficult proposition," said KU Athletics Director SHEAHON ZENGER. "We view this position as not only a radio voice, but as an ambassador for KANSAS Athletics and our university. We received interest from many well-established broadcasters; ultimately we felt that BRIAN's talent as a broadcaster, his positive outlook and his proven connection with the community separated him from the other outstanding candidates."
