He is more than the public announcer for the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Greg Murray is the first and only public announcer for the CBJ and he’s never missed a game.
He said he feels special being a part of Columbus sports history, and he said when he first began he really didn’t know hockey all that much.
“Had you told me 20 years ago I’ll still be doing it I would’ve told you there was no way but here we are 730 something odd games in almost 20 years later,” said Murray. “I love doing it. I’ve never walked into this building feeling like I’m going to a job. I have a great seat and I get to do something that I truly believe I was created to do and it’s a blast every single night when or lose. Although we love to win.”
He enjoys watching this playoff march the Jackets are on right now.
With game two of the second round here happening in Columbus, Murray predicted that fans at Nationwide area will ready.
“It will be unhinged. It is going to be so loud you will feel the vibration of the ground 5 miles away. It’s it is going to be absolutely and you cannot put into words what is going to be like tonight. These fans are so
great they are so passionate about the sport and they are in love with this team and it’s going to come through just about the time that puck drops tonight.”
Murray said that never missing a game is always on his mind, and he wants to see how long he can keep that streak going.
