      EP 041: Matt Shepard U of Michigan Basketball

I have a conversation with Matt Shepard. Matt is the basketball voice of the Michigan Wolverines, football voice of Eastern Michigan, works for Fox Sports Detroit, does fill in for the Detroit Pistons, and preseason games for the Detroit Lions. Topics of discussion include:

  • Surviving a plane crash with the Michigan basketball team and then watching them make a Sweet 16 run.
  • Bouncing back from getting fired from his sports talk job.
  • The uniqueness of working in the Detroit market.
  • His path to success in sportscasting.
  • The challenges of covering an 0-12 football team.
  • The uniqueness of calling games at the Army and Navy Academies.
  • What it was like calling the NCAA Final Four and title game.
  • Why he still writes out his spotting boards by hand.
  • Calling games on the radio vs TV.
  • And much more!
