COLLEGE STATION, TX (KXXV) -

Veteran broadcaster Andrew Monaco was named the “Voice of the Aggies” on Friday, according to Texas A&M Athletics.

Monaco will take over for David South, who retired after three decades of announcing. He will assume the play-by-play duties for Aggie Football and men’s basketball.

He has been a part of the San Antonio Spurs broadcast team for 11 seasons and will relocate to College Station for kickoff on August 30.

According to Texas A&M Athletics, Monaco has extensive experience in play-by-play for college football and basketball for the Southeastern Conference (SEC), Big 12 Conference and Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC).

With his 11 seasons with the Spurs, he has covered two NBA titles, three Western Conference titles and seven division titles.

Monaco said he has a unique appreciation for the culture of Texas A&M and cannot wait for the first kickoff.

“I am thrilled and humbled to be to be chosen to succeed Dave South and I can only hope to honor his legacy by telling the stories and describing the accomplishments of outstanding student-athletes,” Monaco said.
