This year’s guest speaker will be Dave South, former Voice of Texas A&M Sports.
He’s excited to share stories from his 60+ years in the business.
Dave South’s broadcasting career started in 1957 and continues to this day.
He worked in Radio at the start of the rock-n-roll era and saw the early days of AM.
Every Saturday since the 1985 season, Aggie fans around the world became accustomed to hearing and recognizing South as "The Voice of the Aggies."
South was there for the win over Michigan in the Alamo Bowl, the Sirr Parker play in the Big 12 Championship game against KSU, the great wins in 2010 over Oklahoma, Nebraska and Texas, the victory over #1 Alabama in Tuscaloosa in 2012, the final out against Clemson that sent the Aggies to the 1999 College World Series, the clincher over Florida State in 2011 that gave the Aggies a College World Series berth and the victory over Louisville in the second round of the 2007 NCAA Basketball Tournament that sent A&M to the “Sweet 16.”
South’s broadcast experience also includes:
- NBA’s “Game of the Night” (four years)
- "The National College Game of the Night” (three years)
- the NCAA and Southwest Conference Television Network (three years)
- NCAA basketball tournaments for Texas A&M (six tournaments)
- NIT tournaments for the Aggies (two tournaments)
- National Voice of the USC-UCLA football game in Los Angeles (four years)
- …and much more!
During the last 58+ years it’s estimated he has done more than 18,000 live broadcasts and more than 14,000 interviews.
In August 2017, he announced that the 2017-18 football and basketball seasons would be his last for the Aggies.
He continues as the voice of Texas A&M baseball.
