“With the growth we’ve seen over the last four years we are excited about this strategic move,” said Mike Freeman, Butler associate athletic director for external operations. “Joe has done an outstanding job tripling our corporate partnership program, calling the action as our play-by-play voice and developing our media partnerships with [WFNI-AM 1070] and WISH/WNDY-TV.”

Gaudin, a 2006 Butler graduate, has spent the past two years as the voice of the Evansville Aces.

Gaudin was selected by Greg Gumbel of CBS as winner of a nationwide “You Call The Action” broadcasting contest, which led to a live appearance on the CBS set during halftime of the 2005 NCAA National Championship game.
