Anyone who does any type of announcing, talk radio or DJ’ing wants their own great slogan, catch phrase or sign off. I have none of these but that’s OK because I am a huge fan of what other people come up with. If you hear my sign-offs when I DJ you know I am lacking the creative juices in that department.
There soon could be a new phrase hitting your ears in the coming days because of a dunk in a Tennessee high school basketball game. With his team up by five points in the fourth quarter, Micah Phillips slams one home to put another crucial two points on the board. The announcer does the rest. Take a look and listen.
Also be sure to listen to the rest of the calls. I wonder if Gus Johnson is his idol?
