Ramey new voice for Wolf Pack
John Ramey has been selected as the new voice of the Wolf Pack and will call University of Nevada football and men’s basketball games beginning this year, the school announced Thursday along with Learfield, its multimedia rightsholder.
Ramey has been a member of the UCLA Bruins broadcast team since 2010, calling baseball, men’s and women’s soccer, as well as select men’s and women’s basketball games. For the last four years, he also was host of the Bruin Insider Show.
His broadcasting career also has included serving as producer for various Westwood One shows over the years and as a sports anchor, news writer and producer for KNX 1070 Newsradio at CBS News in Los Angeles.
“We’re excited to have John Ramey join the Wolf Pack team,” said Rory Hickok, Nevada’s deputy athletics director. “We were fortunate to have a great field of play-by-play candidates but John’s unique style really stood out. That style, along with his passion and preparation, will resonate very well with Wolf Pack fans. He’ll be a great fit.”
Ramey, 39, will assume the play-by-play role for Wolf Pack football and men’s basketball previously held by Ryan Radtke, who now calls national college football and basketball games for Westwood One.
Additionally, Ramey will host the seasonal Wolf Pack Coaches’ Show and Wolf Pack Daily Show, which gives fans a brief overview of all Wolf Pack sports across campus. He also will host a brand-new Wolf Pack podcast featuring exclusive content for fans and oversee various digital responsibilities.
“John is incredibly talented, and we felt strongly that he’ll be a great fit for the Wolf Pack,” said Andy McDowell, general manager for Learfield’s local Wolf Pack Sports Properties team. “After Learfield’s comprehensive, national search, we all believed John was the most poised for this position and has great experience, character and professionalism.”
