Baumann leaves the air


After 30 years as the University of Vermont’s men’s basketball color analyst, Walt Baumann has stepped away from the radio airwaves, confirming in an email that last season was his last.

“I want to take this opportunity to thank all those that supported me these past 30 years (I started at age 25). This includes play-by-play people, coaches, players, UVM administrators, radio station personnel and so many great people who make up the  UVM basketball culture. Without the support of all of the above, these past 30 years would have been a lot less enjoyable. It’s been a lot of fun and I will always cherish all the great memories and friendships of that experience.”

Great voice. Great insight. Great man. That sums up the guy who sat directly to my left on press row at Patrick Gym. You’ll be missed.
