Condolences to family and friends of longtime former UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA football, baseball and men's basketball radio voice BOB FULTON, who died WEDNESDAY in LEXINGTON, SC at 89.
FULTON called GAMECOCKS games for 43 years until his 1995 retirement after the football squad's first-ever bowl victory over WEST VIRGINIA in the CARQUEST BOWL. He joined the GAMECOCKS in 1952 after a stint broadcasting baseball for MUTUAL BROADCASTING NETWORK.
"We are saddened to learn of the passing of BOB FULTON," said USC Athletics Dir. ERIC HYMAN. "BOB left an indelible mark on thousands of fans who listened to his distinctive voice describing GAMECOCK football, basketball and baseball for years and years. A virtual walking encyclopedia of GAMECOCK athletics, BOB had the unique ability to recall events and tell a story of the memorable moments in CAROLINA history. He will always be regarded by the GAMECOCK Nation as 'The Voice.'"
