If you haven’t heard by now…our f
ormer director of broadcasting and media relations Rob Gidel has accepted an opportunity to work with the University of Akron radio network, and among other duties, is the play-by-play announcer for women’s basketball.
So, the Legends had to go out and find a new “Voice of the Legends” and boy did we pick up a great choice…KEITH ELKINS…
Keith Elkins, a former Lexington television sports reporter and anchor and public relations officer at the University of Kentucky and Transylvania University, has accepted the broadcasting and media relations position. In addition to serving as the team’s primary media contact, his duties will include play-by-play of all games on radio. Legends games are heard on flagship station WLXG in Lexington and 34 affiliates across the Commonwealth, making up the largest radio network in minor league baseball. Elkins worked part-time on Legends broadcasts in 2008.
He is going to do a fine job and we are ALL excited to have Keith join us here in our front office staff.
Have a great weekend everyone and be sure to check back in on Monday as I wrap up my weekend and fill you in on the week ahead.
until next time, keep it SUPER fans!
