Rick Cameron, the “Voice of the Bears,” is in his 10th year calling Mercer play-by-play, after leading the broadcast team in 2013 during the Mercer football program’s first season of action in more than 70 years.
Cameron, who is also Mercer’s senior assistant vice president for marketing communications, returned to the broadcast booth for three men’s basketball games in 2005 after originally doing radio play-by- play in the late 1970s and 1980s. Beginning with the 2006-2007 season, Cameron became the fulltime “Voice of the Bears.”
His call of the Austin Peay football game on Oct. 11 this season will be his 400th career game on the radio for Mercer athletics. In addition to football, he has done all men’s basketball games since 2006 and select women’s basketball, baseball and softball games on radio.
