Friday July 31st marked the end of a fantastic run. Michael Brown, the voice of the Montgomery College Raptors, retired.

At the age of 48 Brown decided to take Broadcasting classes at Montgomery College. Brown said he was impressed with what he found in the TV and Radio Program department, so he had decided to pursue a dream that he had always wanted to go after:  A career in radio and television.

For the past 20 years Brown worked in the sports broadcasting industry. And In 2012 Brown became the voice of the Montgomery College Raptors where he has been in the broadcasting booth covering over 110 Montgomery College sporting events including baseball, softball, basketball, soccer, volleyball, and football games.

In a tweet on August 1, Brian Anweiler a former colleague of Brown’s had this to say about the retirement, “You were, and are a real pro and I know the MC Raptors are going to miss you. I enjoyed working with you.”

At this time no decision has been made as to who will take over for Michael Brown.

Montgomery College wishes Michael Brown all the best in his future endeavors.
