Woody Durham

From 1971 to his retirement in 2011, Woody Durham was the “Voice of the Tar Heels,” the radio play-by-play man for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Our State magazine once said: “To his listeners, he has been a faceless passenger in a car, the audio to a muted television, or the man inside the earplugs. To his listeners, he’s what powder blue sounds like.” Even in Kenan Stadium or the Dean Smith Center, hundreds of fans listened to the radio at the games so Woody could tell them what was really happening on the field or the court.
