RICH CELLINI has been named the lead play-by-play announcer for SPORTS USA RADIO NETWORK's 2009 college football game of the week. CELLINI, who has worked with ABC, ESPN2, FOX, the MOUNTAIN WEST CONFERENCE, and FOX SPORTS NET, has been serving since 2005 as a part-time play-by-play voice and sideline reporter for the network. He fills the gap left by the passing of TOM DILLON last DECEMBER.
"Earning the opportunity to fill the position held by our dear friend at SPORTS USA RADIO NETWORK, the late TOM DILLON, is an honor that humbles me," said CELLINI. "TOM was both a friend and mentor. I look forward to utilizing all of his lessons to capture the passion and pageantry of college football and sharing the excitement of the season with my analyst Gary Barnett and our fans across the country."
"We’re excited to have RICH with us on a full time basis this season," SPORTS USA RADIO NETWORK President LARRY KAHN said. "His radio and television background, along with his knowledge of the game is an asset that will make for great radio."
