The Rotary Club of Ville Platte today (Tuesday) heard from “The Voice of the LSU Tigers” Chris Blair at their noon meeting at the Family Life Center. Blair has been the play by play announcer for LSU Sports for the past two years replacing long time announcer Jim Hawthorne.
Blair was the announcer for Georgia Southern for a number of years. He is a native of Kentucky. His family was in the radio business.
He told rotary club members that the football program under Coach Ed Orgeron should show much improvement this football season. He also felt the basketball program and baseball should also make major strides in the new school year.
Blair was the special guest of Rotarian Bill Brunet. Blair visited KVPI after the rotary meeting for a special interview and met with local residents in a Meet and Greet.
