The Penn Sports Network, the broadcasting arm of Penn Athletics encompassing radio, television, and on-line/new media, is partnering with Salem Communications for live, play-by-play radio coverage of the Quakers for the 2007 campaign. For the second consecutive season, the Red and Blue's complete schedule will be carried over either the WNTP 990 AM or WFIL 560 AM airwaves, which reach across the entire Philadelphia region. Five games will broadcast on TV.
Play-by-play man Brian Seltzer and former Quaker Hench Murray will call the action for the Red and Blue in 2008. This campaign marks the 28th for Murray in his role as analyst. The two will also co-host the United Health Care Halftime Report and the Comcast Sports Net Post-Game Show, as well as the Pepsi Pre-Game Show (select contests).
Hench Murray, a Philadelphia native and alum of Germantown Academy and the University of Pennsylvania, is the dean of Ivy League Football color commentators. Murray's analysis has become synonymous with the sound of Quaker gridiron games, since he arrived in the broadcast booth for the 1981 season. While at Penn, he was a member of the Sprint Football program, which is currently celebrating its 75th Anniversary. Earning a B.A. in English and an M.A. in Education, Murray serves as the Head of School for the Woodlynde School, located in Strafford, PA. He returned to the post in 2005, after occupying the position from 1981 to 1995. Murray has served on the Board of Directors for the Maxwell Football Club, the Little Quakers, and the Pennsylvania Association of Private Independent Schools. He resides with his wife in suburban Philadelphia.
Brian Seltzer C’07 provides the play-by-play for Football and Men’s Basketball radio broadcasts on the Penn Sports Network. In addition to his role as Broadcast Coordinator for Penn Athletics, Seltzer serves as the Philadelphia Eagles beat reporter for 950 ESPN Radio Philadelphia, with his coverage receiving the Philadelphia Radio A.I.R. Award for “Best Sports Reporting” in 2006 and 2007. He also co-hosts 950 ESPN’s Monday Night Football Live program, featuring the Brian Dawkins Show. During the Eagles off-season, Seltzer handles the station's Sports Center updates for the Mike Missanelli Show. He graduated from Penn in May 2007 with a degree in Political Science, and resides in Philadelphia.
