ATHENS, Ga. — The University of Georgia home radio booth at Sanford Stadium will be named Saturday for the late Larry Munson, legendary voice of the Bulldogs for 42 years.

The “Larry Munson Broadcast Suite” will be officially recognized during pre-game activities at the Georgia-Tennessee game which kicks off at 3:39 p.m.

A plaque will be placed outside the Larry Munson Broadcast Suite that reads: “Dedicated to legendary Bulldog play-by-play announcer Larry Munson who served as the voice of the Bulldog Nation from 1966-2008. His dedication, loyalty, passion and extraordinary delivery over 42 years endeared him to Georgia fans in every city, state, and nation around the world, always urging the teams, and fans, to ‘hunker down you guys.’”

A collage of photos during Munson’s career will be displayed in the broadcast suite.

Munson, who died Nov. 20, 2011, wrapped up a lifetime of sports broadcasting in the fall of 2008, most of which was spent with the Bulldogs from 1966 to 2008.
