Monday, the Auburn Tigers officially named their new “voice” for football, men’s basketball and baseball games. Andy Burcham, who has been with the school since 1988, will assume the responsibilities.
Burcham will replace fan-favorite Rod Bramblett, the longtime Auburn announcer who passed away along with his wife in an automobile accident back in May.
Burcham has called baseball games at Auburn for 25 years. He’s also called women’s basketball games since 1988. He certainly has the experience required.
Here’s more, via Auburn’s official release:
A versatile broadcaster, Burcham has done radio and SEC Network+ broadcasts for Auburn soccer since 2001, SEC Network+ broadcasts for Auburn baseball the last five years and locally hosted Auburn Opelika This Morning for 12 years while serving as station manager at WANI. A recipient of 15 Alabama Broadcaster Association awards, Burcham began his career in the Auburn-Opelika area as news and sports director for Fuller Broadcasting and Tiger Communications.
Burcham will have the title of the “Voice of the Auburn Tigers” moving forward.
Auburn’s first football game this year will come against Oregon on August 31.
