Nick White named ESPN+ play-by-play voice for ULM football, basketball and softball
MONROE, La. – Nick White will take over as the television play-by-play voice for ULM football, basketball and softball on ESPN+ beginning with the 2022-23 season. His role begins with ULM’s first home football game against Nicholls on Sept. 10.
White, who has been the radio “Voice of the Warhawks” for football since 2018, has spent time in the broadcast booth as the voice of ULM football, men’s basketball, women’s basketball and baseball, as well as serving as a sideline reporter for football. He first joined the Warhawk Radio Network in 2010. He has provided play-by-play for ULM softball on ESPN+ since 2019.
“Since I was a child, I’ve dreamed of being a broadcaster,” White said. “Twenty years ago, I was blessed to start living out that dream through sports talk radio and doing local high school play-by-play. As I grew in the business, my dream was to become the voice of a Division I, FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision) program. In 2010, I got the opportunity to start broadcasting ULM men’s and women’s basketball and in 2018, after the legendary Frank Hoffmann retired from the football booth, I earned the title of “Voice of the Warhawks.” It was truly a dream job.
“Last August, I had some major changes in my personal life that made me really start to put some things in perspective, mainly my two sons, Bryan and Micah,” White said. “After a lot of prayer and many discussions with the administrators at ULM and Learfield, we mutually decided that I should move to the TV booth to broadcast home football, men’s basketball, women’s basketball and softball games on ESPN+. This move will allow me to continue broadcasting, frees up my travel schedule to be with my sons, and allows me to focus more on my Manager of Business Development position with Warhawk Sports Properties.”
“I’m excited for Nick White as he transitions into his role as the ‘Voice of the Warhawks’ on ESPN+, especially as ULM continues to expand its sports coverage on that platform,” ULM Athletics Director Scott McDonald said. “As Nick moves into the next phase of his professional life, it’s important that he remains in a position to continue to be both an ambassador and advocate for ULM Athletics. He’s a valuable team member.”
“Everyone at ULM and Learfield has been so supportive of me and my family over the past year, and I am thankful to them for understanding and being so accommodating in facilitating this change,” White said. “I’ve been fortunate to have a front-row seat and be the fans eyes and ears on the radio for 12 years. I will cherish the memories and relationships I have made with the coaches, players and fans throughout the years.”
An announcement about White’s replacement on the Warhawk Radio Network is scheduled for early next week.
