Chris Blair enters his ninth football season as the “Voice of the Tigers” after joining the LSU Sports Network and calling his first season of baseball games at LSU in the spring of 2016.

Blair, Georgia Southern’s radio voice for 10 seasons, was named in June 2015 as the “Voice of the Tigers” after officially joining LSU Athletics on Dec. 7, 2015. He serves as play-by-play announcer for the LSU football, men’s basketball and baseball programs.

Blair’s resume covers virtually all aspects of broadcasting with experience in broadcast management and marketing positions in Greenville and Columbia, South Carolina. Blair essentially grew up in a radio station, as he began working for his father, a long-time broadcaster, at age 14. His college broadcast experience includes working for the Clemson Tigers Sports Network and at Lander University.

Blair spent 10 years as play-by-play announcer for prep powerhouse Greenwood High School in South Carolina and handled the play-by-play for four state championship football games at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia, South Carolina.

Along with his play-by-play duties for Georgia Southern, Blair handled all the behind-the-scenes aspects with affiliate relations, network marketing plans and overall sound presentation of GSU Athletics on the air and on the Internet. He also hosted the weekly coaches’ radio shows and was the host for GSU basketball’s weekly television show.

Blair is married to the former Dr. Amber Anders and they have two children, Crafton Christopher and Rivers Elisabeth.
