Tuesday, Creighton and NRG Media announced who will be heard on the 1620 the Zone broadcasts of Bluejay Basketball.
John Bishop, who has been the longtime play-by-play voice of CU baseball, will replace fan favorite and 20-year vet T. Scott Marr.
Bishop, in addition to calling the action on the diamond, has called state basketball for years. He'll join Creighton alumnus Nick Bahe, who's served as color analyst since 2008 when he was a graduate assistant on Dana Altman's staff.
"John Bishop has delivered literally hundreds of radio sports broadcasts," said Andy Ruback, 1620 the Zone General Manager. "John has also been the voice of Creighton Baseball for a long time, and the fans are familiar with his talents."
The pairing will only help the exposure of Creighton men's basketball with the added partnership between the university and NRG media. Last week, the station announced Bahe will host a show from 9 a.m. to noon, with Bishop following on Unsportsmanlike Conduct from 2-6 pm.
"We believe John Bishop and Nick Bahe will be an outstanding broadcast team for our men's basketball games," said Creighton athletic director Bruce Rasmussen. "We have had a great relationship with John for quite some time and he is very good at what he does. We also think very highly of Nick and believe he is one of the best young college basketball analysts in the country. Since they are both 1620 The Zone on-air personalities, it provides us an even better presence in the Omaha radio market while giving NRG Media the ability to cross-promote with all of its stations and shows and take our partnership to the fullest extent possible."
