Penn State Football: Jones and Ham Extended Three More Years
Penn State fans don't have to worry, a familiar set of voices will grace the radio waves for at least three more years according to a university news release.
Steve Jones and Jack Ham will begin their 14th straight season of calling Nittany Lion football when Coach Bill O'Brien's squad meets Syracuse on Aug. 31 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
Jones has served as the play-by-play voice of Nittany Lion basketball since 1982 and Penn State football since 2000. He also co-hosts the Penn State Football Show and Penn State Basketball Show every Thursday at 6:05 p.m. from late August through mid-March.
Ham was a first-team All-America linebacker for the Nittany Lions and is considered to be one of the greatest outside linebackers in the history of the National Football League. Ham earned nine consecutive All-Pro selections during his 12-year career, playing an instrumental role in the Steelers' four Super Bowl championships in the 1970's. Ham was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1988 and inducted into the National Football Foundation College Hall of Fame in 1990.
Penn State football games can be heard on nearly 60 stations in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Ohio, as well as www.GoPSUsports.com. For a listing of Penn State Sports Network affiliates, visit www.GoPSUsports.com.
