CHARLESTON, S.C. – Charleston Southern has announced the hiring of Jon Laaser as the new “Voice of the Buccaneers.” Laaser will serve as the play-by-play broadcaster for football and men’s basketball, and will host the Jay Mills and Barclay Radebaugh Coaches’ Shows.
Laaser will come down to Charleston from Myrtle Beach, S.C., where he is currently broadcasting for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, the Advanced-A minor league affiliate for the Atlanta Braves.
“I am extremely excited to join the great community of people at Charleston Southern,” said Laaser. “I can’t imagine a better fit for me and I am looking forward to bringing Buccaneer athletics to their outstanding fan base.”
Prior to Myrtle Beach, Laaser spent three years at KFAN in Minneapolis, Minn., where he was the lead broadcaster for the Minnesota State Football and Basketball Championships, as well as the host of Prep Sports Saturday.
The 2002 Brown College graduate has also recently spent time with the Altoona Curve and the Yakima Bears.
