The Citadel has hired Mike Legg as the new voice of the Bulldogs.
Legg will assume the radio play-by-play duties for Citadel football, basketball and baseball. The Citadel and Kirkman Broadcasting announced the hire on Friday.
The 43-year-old Legg will also serve as director of broadcasting for The Citadel Sports Network and a marketing executive for Kirkman's six Charleston-based radio stations. Legg will also host The Mike Houston Show and The Chuck Driesell Show which appear throughout the season on citadelsports.com.
"I am excited to be a part of the rich tradition and extremely high standards of The Citadel," Legg said. "From my new colleagues at Kirkman Broadcasting to the outstanding student-athletes, coaches and administrators at The Citadel, I am honored to be working with the best of the best on a daily basis."
Legg has 17 years of play-by-play experience including 13 on the Division I level. He spent six seasons (2001-07) at Western Kentucky and was behind the mic when the Hilltoppers won the I-AA (now FCS) national championship in 2002. He also spent the 1994-01 seasons at Southeast Missouri State.
A native of Fairfield, Ill., Legg attended Southern Illinois where he earned his bachelor's degree in radio and television in 1994.
Prior to coming to Kirkman Broadcasting and The Citadel, Legg worked in sales and marketing in Memphis, Tenn., including a stint as an account executive for Tiger Sports Properties, tying companies to the athletic programs at the University of Memphis.
Legg and his wife, Tricia, have a home in Summerville.
Legg will be joined in the football booth by former Bulldog standout Lee Glaze (Class of 1986), who spent the past two seasons as the broadcast's sideline reporter. Glaze starred in baseball and football at The Citadel, was the 1986 Southern Conference Athlete of the Year and was inducted into the school's athletic hall of fame in 1996. Ted Byrne will host the tailgate show two hours before each football game. Jay Harper will produce the broadcasts and report on other college football action from the studio.
