Tech names Brandon Gaudin as the next voice of the Jackets

By staff
ATLANTA -- Brandon Gaudin, the radio play-by-play announcer for Butler University football and men's basketball, was named "Voice of the Yellow Jackets" Monday by Georgia Tech director of athletics Mike Bobinski.

In his new role, Gaudin will serve as play-by-play announcer on the Georgia Tech/IMG Sports Audio Network, host of weekly radio shows for football coach Paul Johnson and men's basketball coach Brian Gregory, and host of Georgia Tech's television productions.

"I am pleased to welcome Brandon Gaudin to the Georgia Tech family," Bobinski said. "Brandon is a multi-talented broadcast professional and I'm certain that he will do an outstanding job as the new 'Voice of the Yellow Jackets.'

"Beyond that, his genuine enthusiasm for his new role at Georgia Tech will make him a great ambassador for our athletic program and the Institute."

Gaudin replaces Wes Durham, who announced on June 18 that he was leaving the position to pursue a career in sports television. Durham, who continues to serve as the play-by-play voice of the Atlanta Falcons, worked 18 years for Georgia Tech.

When Durham began his career at Georgia Tech, he was 29-years old
