RUTGERS men's basketball will have a new radio voice for the first time since 1985, as long-time SCARLET KNIGHTS play-by-play announcer BRUCE JOHNSON exits and football voice CHRIS CARLIN adds basketball duties.
CARLIN, the morning sports anchor for CBS Sports WFAN-A/NEW YORK, has been with the RUTGERS RADIO NETWORK for eight years and has served as football play-by-play voice for the last five years. DICK LLOYD will return as color commentator for the broadcasts. JOHNSON, the PD at RUTGERS flagship GREATER MEDIA Talk WCTC-A/NEW BRUNSWICK, was also dropped from the school's women's basketball broadcasts.
RUTGERS Athletic Director ROBERT E. MULCAHY said, "CHRIS CARLIN provides a unifying voice for RUTGERS athletics. Having served as the voice of RUTGERS football, he knows our mission and understands the significance of establishing a winning culture."
