Annual Meeting and Guest Speaker
Please save the date: Thursday, July 30 at the Houndstooth Saloon beginning at 6:00 PM CST for our Annual Summer meeting. During this time we’ll network with other Chicago area Alabama Alumni and Fans, learn about the upcoming events within the association and be joined by our annual guest speaker. This year our special guest will be Chris Stewart of the Crimson Tide Sports Network. A bit about Chris:
Chris Stewart is in his 21st year in broadcasting, and recently finished his seventh season as the University of Alabama’s men’s basketball play-by-play announcer for the Crimson Tide Sports Network.
In addition to his role as the voice of Crimson Tide Basketball, Stewart also serves as
radio pre and post-game show host, and TV play-by-play announcer for CTSN’s tape-delayed and pay-per-view coverage of Crimson Tide Football.
Stewart also is the radio play-by-play announcer for Bama Baseball.
Prior to taking over the Alabama basketball play-by-play job, the Fairfield native also spent eight seasons as the radio announcer for Birmingham-Southern College. He described the action for two NAIA national championships won by the Panthers – the 1995 men’s basketball title, as well as the 2001 baseball championship.
Stewart has done additional work for CSS, ESPN Regional, and Fox Sports South.
On three occasions (2004, 2007, 2008) he has also named “Alabama Sportscaster of the Year” by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association.
