Craig Way – The Voice Of The Longhorns

Craig Way

How did Craig Way come to be “Voice of the Texas Longhorns,” a title he has held since 2001 for UT football, men’s and women’s basketball, and baseball radio broadcasts? It started at the University of North Texas, where the Greensboro, NC native worked a variety of duties for the KNTU (the school’s radio station), eventually graduating with a degree in Broadcast Journalism in 1985.

From there, Craig worked for KRLD in Dallas for 13 years as a talk show host, sports anchor, and play-by-play guy. During this time, several crucial things happened. First, Craig served as a studio anchor for University of Texas football broadcasts and the Southwest Conference Radio Network, from 1988-92.

1992 was a big year for Craig Way. Not only did he become the official voice of the Texas High School Football State Championships for the TV network now known as Fox Sports Southwest, he was also dubbed radio analyst for Longhorn football and men’s basketball.

In 1997, Craig Way’s broadcast career received another major boost. On top of hosting TV’s “High School Scoreboard Live” and becoming radio play-by-play voice for UT women’s basketball, Craig moved his family to Austin to host a daily sports talk show.

In 2001, after his Longhorn Radio Network broadcast partner Bill Schoenig moved on to call San Antonio Spurs games, Craig assumed his current position as “Voice of the Texas Longhorns.”

16 years later, Craig added to an already sterling career resume, when he was named Sports Director by the Austin Radio Network to coordinate Longhorn football, basketball, baseball, and softball broadcasts, as well as nurture ARN’s evolving high school football network.

And you can hear Craig Way on The Horn all throughout the year, on Longhorn sports broadcasts and the daily Longhorn Report feature.
