Packers Radio Network play-by-play announcer Wayne Larrivee has been named emcee of the 43rd Packers Hall of Fame Induction Banquet held at the Lambeau Field Atrium the evening of Saturday July 20, an event that will see Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila, Chris Jacke, and Emil Fischer become the newest members of the Hall that evening.
According to a release from the Packers organization:
One of the most distinctive voices in radio play-by-play, Larrivee in 2013 will be calling his 15th season of Packers games. Prior to joining WTMJ and the Packers Radio Network in 1999, he handled play-by-play duties for the Chicago Bears for 14 seasons. Larrivee also called Chicago Cubs baseball and college basketball. Before that, Larrivee was the ‘Voice of the Kansas City Chiefs,’ from 1978-1984. He also has co-hosted the nationally syndicated Pro Football Weekly radio program.
Larrivee also does broadcast work on the television side, calling NCAA basketball and regional Big Ten football and basketball broadcasts. He performed play-by-play duties for Chicago Bulls basketball on WGN television from 1991-2008. Recipient of numerous awards and accolades throughout his career, Larrivee is a five-time winner of the Silver Dome Award for Best Radio Football Play-by-Play from the Illinois Broadcasters Association, and he was named Illinois ‘Sportscaster of the Year’ in 1997. Larrivee, a graduate of Emerson College in Boston, also has received two Emmys for his work on the Chicago Bulls broadcasts.
