      EP 050: Dave Hunziker, Oklahoma State

In this episode I visit with the voice of the Oklahoma State Cowboys, Dave Hunziker. We discuss a wide range of topics including:

  • Recording ads and promos in his closet at home.
  • What he does during his bye week.
  • The difficult situation of following popular broadcaster Bill Teegins after he passed away in a tragic airplane crash.
  • How he balances family and work life.
  • Doing PA for local slow pitch softball tournaments at the age of ten.
  • His path from small town radio, to small NCAA DI, to Oklahoma State.
  • How a connection with current Atlanta Falcons broadcaster Wes Durham helped him land his first DI job.
  • The things he did to build networking connections.
  • Why he almost turned down the Oklahoma State job and who talked him out of turning it down.
  • How he got into teaching sportscasting.
  • How he learned the hard way to not criticize officials.
  • How he reacted to the “I’m a man, I’m 40” rant by Mike Gundy.
  • The difficulty of broadcasting a super high tempo offense.
  • NFL player Russell Okung stealing candy from his broadcast booth.
  • Blowing a big call while Bob Carpenter was sitting in the booth.
  • How he came up with his signature phrases “Pistols Firing” and “Goodnight Vienna.”
  • Who are his favorite broadcasters to listen to on an off day.
  • What he does to this day to improve as a broadcaster.

And much more!
