Gena Asher interviews Don Fischer, who has been the radio voice of Indiana University football and basketball games for forty years.

Don Fischer

“You get a feel for how to go about doing a game. My thinking process has always been, ‘You never know what’s going to happen.'”

Don Fischer has announced more than 1,600 IU games that include eight Bowl games, four NCAA basketball Championship games, and two N.I.T. Championship games. He hosts the weekly Coaches talk shows for both football and basketball, and his weekday show IU Sports Today is syndicated throughout Indiana.

Fischer has been named Indiana Sportscaster of the Year a total of twenty-six times by the national and Indiana Sportscasters and Sportswriters Associations, and has been inducted into the Indiana Broadcasters Association Hall of Fame.
