In an effort to continually upgrade Bearcat Lair, the site has recently added Eric Waddel as a moderator and media specialist. Waddell has a wealth of media experience in a number of sports.
The Tennessee resident has spent nineteen years in both sports radio and television including serving as a television beat reporter for Tennessee, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Indiana, Purdue, Memphis and others. He was also a commentator for a weekly SEC recap/preview show called the “Sunday Evening Quarterback” and served as a sideline reporter for an NAIA National Championship football game.
The former Wyoming High School football player was also a voter for the Associated Press “Top 25” men’s basketball poll from 2002-04, and as an announcer in minor league baseball, Waddell was the recipient of the Southern League “Television Broadcaster of the Year” award.
For the last several years, Waddell has moderated the Scout.com message board at Bearcat Insider under the screen name of “bearcatvol.”
