IU radio legend Don Fischer joined Greg Bateman on Getting to Know Your Indiana Neighbor. The pair discussed Fischer’s life from a young man in Rochelle, Ill. to more than a half century as the voice of Indiana football and basketball.
Fischer entered his 51st season as the “Voice of the Hoosiers” this fall, having started his time calling Indiana football games in 1973 at the age of 26.
In addition to broadcasting games, Fischer hosts the weekly coaches talk shows for both football and basketball. He also offers stations a weekly talk show about IU football and basketball that airs in several markets around the state during the school year.
Fischer has broadcast more than 2,000 Indiana University games, including 12 bowl games, five NCAA basketball Final Fours, four NCAA basketball championship games and two NIT championship games.
