Georgia Southern’s play-by-play commentator Chris Blair announced Saturday that he has been hired by LSU.
The school has been searching for a replacement for Jim Hawthorne as ‘Voice of the Tigers’ for the 2016 baseball season. Blair is expected to make the move to Baton Rouge in December. The 40-year old radio star grew up working at his father’s station in Kentucky and has called Georgia Southern home for the last 10 years.
Blair says the opportunity is “exciting, awesome, and unbelievable.”
