Wes Durham, Atlanta Falcons play-by-play voice and ACC Network host/play-by-play announcer, joined me this week on my Zoom video and radio series during this quarantine period we’re in. Go to the Blogs tab under my name anytime to access my blogs. You can also click HERE for now.

Durham discussed adjusting to the current climate as a versatile broadcaster, the start of the ACC Network, the considerations for when college football and the NFL play again, what the Falcons may do in the first round of the NFL Draft, he answered my “3 For V” questions and shared praise for legendary Vols voice John Ward.

Here’s one quote from Wes Durham on John Ward:
“It always meant a lot when I got a chance to spend time with John because when I got the Vanderbilt job at 26 in 1992, Vince, John and Larry Munson (Georgia) and Jim Fyffe at Auburn, the late Jim Fyffe at Auburn and Eli Gold at Alabama were the first handful of guys to reach out to a young guy doing games. They were just so gracious and we became friends. It always meant a lot.”
