Low Country Radio has a new broadcast team for the 2018 Bradwell football season. Last year’s color announcer, Charlie Moon, moves over to play-by-play. Josh Lamotte will handle color and Leslie Lockhart handles sideline reporting. Both are military fathers of Bradwell players.
The team also includes three Bradwell interns. Senior James Wells (stats), is a former player, unable to play due to a blood condition. Jonathan Vreeland, a GA Southern student and 2017 Bradwell grad is handling tech.
There are several new additions to this year’s broadcast, including a full one-hour pregame show and a weekly live conversation with a Bradwell family member serving overseas.
The group’s first broadcast last Friday went well. The line of the night was Lockhart talking about a punt traveling a “cool and breezy” 67 yards and his interview with Bradwell receiver Tristan Pullin’s mother, “deep in the bowels of the concession stand. Lamotte described Bradwell running back Kevin Harris as an M-1, M-1 Abrams. Moon also nicknamed a Bradwell defensive lineman, the “Round Mound of Chocolate.”
Aside from the clever quips, it was a quality broadcast that allowed listeners all over the world to hear Bradwell sports. Moon also spoke live on air to Andre Brittingham, Brenden Brittingham’s father, during the 4th quarter. Brittingham is currently serving in South Korea.
Moon says, “We want to bring something extra to our broadcast, something very unique. Why not hear from our Bradwell family serving overseas?
“The goal of doing a game on radio is to paint as clear a picture of the game as possible, for the listeners. We want to bring insight, statistics and fun to their ears. And we want folks to come to Olvey Field with their ears on.”
LCR also officially kicked off “The Coach’s Show.” Hosts Charlie Moon, John Wood and Tim Melhorn interviewed Bradwell’s Ross Couch and Liberty County’s Kirk Warner. They also had on, WSAV’s Greg Talbot and Evan Smoak, from In the Game Magazine. Wood is a former Bradwell teacher and coach and is currently an In the Game writer and WSAV contributor. Melhorn handles play-by-play for Richmond Hill.
The show will continue to feature Ross and Warner and plans to add others.
Here’s the upcoming week’s schedule:
Friday – Bradwell football vs. Dodge County - 6:30 pregame show; 7:30 kickoff.
Monday – 7 p.m. “The Coach’s Show,” broadcast live from Chili’s.
