PROVO, Utah — BYU Director of Athletics Tom Holmoe today announced the hiring of Greg Wrubell as the director of broadcast media for BYU Athletics.
“We are excited to bring Greg onboard as the director of broadcast media,” Holmoe said. “He has been part of our family as the Voice of the Cougars for 25 years and has a passion for BYU that is unmatched. We look forward to the many things Greg will help us accomplish in the areas of broadcasting, internet and social media.”
In his new position Wrubell will continue with his responsibilities as the Voice of the Cougars doing radio play-by-play for football, basketball and soccer. He will also continue hosting weekly radio shows for football, basketball and soccer. In addition, Wrubell will contribute regular features for BYUcougars.com and various social media platforms for the athletic department.
A native of Canada, Wrubell is entering his 25th season on the BYU football radio broadcast crew, having served as the team’s play-by-play voice since 2001. He recently completed his 20th season as the radio play-by-play broadcaster for BYU basketball, and is entering his third season as the voice of BYU women’s soccer.
Wrubell, who graduated from BYU in 1990 with a degree in broadcast journalism, has been the long-time host of weekly BYU radio shows for football and basketball, and also covered the Cougars in various capacities for more than 25 years with BYU’s flagship radio station, KSL Newsradio.
“I am thrilled to officially become a member of the BYU Athletics family,” Wrubell said. “My work as Voice of the Cougars has represented a valued association with my alma mater, and I am eager to forge an even stronger bond with the BYU sports programs, its coaches, student-athletes and Cougar Nation. Great things are in store for BYU Athletics, and I couldn’t be happier to assume this new role moving forward.”
