Rick Cameron, the “Voice of the Bears,” is in his 12th year calling Mercer play-by-play, after calling his 400th career game on the radio during the football team's victory over Austin Peay on Oct. 11, 2014.
Cameron, who is also Mercer’s senior assistant vice president for marketing communications, returned to the broadcast booth for three men’s basketball games in 2005 after originally doing radio play-by- play in the late 1970s and 1980s. Beginning with the 2006-2007 season, Cameron became the fulltime “Voice of the Bears.”
In addition to football, he has done all men’s basketball games since 2006 and select women’s basketball, baseball and softball games on radio.
