Cougar Profile: Voice of the Cougars Jeff McCarragher

25 Dec

Jeff McCarragher is in his first season as the new Voice of the Cougars and the Director of Broadcasting for the Cougar Sports Network. You can hear him throughout the 2010-11 season on CofC’s flaghship station ESPN Radio 910 AM in Charleston or via a live audio link at www.charlestonsportsradio.com.

McCarragher, a sports broadcasting veteran with over 13 years in radio and television, comes to Charleston with an extensive play-by-play resume including Southern Conference experience. His stops include multi-year stints as the voice of UNC Greensboro Basketball, the lead announcer for the Norfolk Tides (Triple A affiliate of the New York Mets) and the Greensboro Bats, as well as television broadcasts for the University of Kansas women’s basketball team.

Ironically, Jeff and I used to work together when I was an assistant SID at Kansas State and last worked together, prior to us both landing the Charleston gigs,  in March when my old Texas A&M women’s basketball team played KU at Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence, Kan.

Prior to Charleston, he spent the last four years in Kansas City. While there, McCarrager spent two years as the pregame show host for the Kansas City Royals and co-host of the morning talk show on 610 Sports. He also graced local television for two years as a sports anchor on the ABC affiliate in Topeka, Kan., where he was honored by the Kansas Association of Broadcasters with the 2006 Sportscast of the Year – medium market television.

A 1997 graduate of the University of Kansas, McCarragher is married to the former Amy McManus and they have two children, Derek (9) and Noelle (6).
