Wranglers add two former Longhorns to broadcast team
AUSTIN- The Austin Wranglers announce the addition of Chance Mock and Aaron Humphrey to the team's home radio broadcast team. The two former University of Texas Longhorns, both of whom have experience as players in the Arena Football League, will join AM1300 The Zone's Erin Hogan in the home radio broadcast booth.
"Chance and Erin are not only household names to football fans in Central Texas, but are also extremely knowledgeable about the game of Arena Football," said Kent Koen, Director of Marketing & Media for the Austin Wranglers. "Erin Hogan's relentless preparation coupled with Chance and Aaron's in-depth understanding of the offensive and defensive sides of the AFL game will make for exciting and informative broadcasts, ones that football fans will not want to miss."
Today's announcement follows the continuation of an on-going partnership between Clear Channel Radio-Austin and the Austin Wranglers for clearance of all Austin Wranglers regular and post-season games and a weekly Coach's Show on Clear Channel's AM1300 The Zone. The 2007 season will mark the fourth consecutive year that AM1300 The Zone and the Austin Wranglers have teamed-up to provide AFL fans game action and commentary on one of Central Texas' premier professional sports franchises.
Austin Wranglers Director of Marketing & Media Kent Koen and General Manager Glyn Milburn will call the action for the eight Austin Wranglers regular season road games. Milburn and Koen have teamed-up to call the action for each of the last two seasons.
The Wrangler Round-Up with Head Coach Brian Partlow airs most Monday evenings from
7 - 8 p.m. on AM1300 The Zone. As the schedule may vary, visit the Austin Wranglers website for the schedule each week. During each Wrangler Round-Up, Coach Partlow will review the previous week's game, look ahead to the next weekend's match-up and take phone calls from listeners. Fans can also expect player interviews, celebrity guests and news from around the Arena Football League. The program is co-hosted by Erin Hogan and Kent Koen.
Background on the Broadcast Team
Entering his third season calling Arena Football League action, Erin Hogan returns to the broadcast booth in 2007 to relay the excitement and action to Austin Wranglers fans. Co-host of "The Buck on Sports" morning show on AM 1300 The Zone (6 a.m. - 11 a.m.), Hogan brings a unique perspective to Austin-area sports fans.
Hogan, a self proclaimed "big mouth," is a devoted husband to wife, Nadine, and a father of three beautiful children. He divides his time between his family responsibilities and fulfilling his passion for sports. He graduated from St. Edwards University in 1995 and continues to reside in The Capital City.
Chance Mock enters his first season in the booth for the Wranglers home radio broadcasts. Spending the 2006 Arena Football League season as the Austin Wranglers back-up quarterback, Chance brings his expertise of the quarterback position and knowledge of offense to provide color commentary and sideline reports during the broadcast.
A former University of Texas Longhorn (2001-05), Chance saw action in 28 career games and began his college career with a streak of 106 consecutive passes without an interception (a Texas record). Chance graduated in December of 2006 with a degree in youth and community studies. Currently, Chance is working in real estate, refurbishing homes for sale.
Aaron Humphrey, also known affectionately as "Hump," enters his first season in the broadcast booth, but is no new comer to Arena Football as he is a three-year veteran lineman, having played with the Wranglers since their inaugural season in 2004.
Also a former University of Texas Longhorn (1996-99), Hump was voted the Longhorns MVP in 1999. He also served as an assistant strength and conditioning coach during the Texas Football 2005 National Championship season. Hump graduated with a degree from Texas in applied learning and development education.
Kent Koen, who calls the Wranglers road games, enters his 10th season on-air. His career has included stops at AM 1300 The Zone and KLBJ - AM, where he was a news and sports reporter/producer.
Kent has been with the Austin Wranglers since their inaugural season in 2004 and was a member of the committee that brought Austin an AFL team. While with the Wranglers, Kent has worked in corporate partnerships, marketing and media/broadcasting.
Glyn Milburn enters his fourth calling the Austin Wranglers road games on the radio. Milburn retired from professional football in 2002 rounding out a 10 year career. Originally drafted in the 1993 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos in the second round, Milburn spent time with Denver, Detroit, Chicago and San Diego. He was selected to the Pro Bowl as a return specialist in 1995 and 1999 and was named an alternate in 1997.
