Something that made Woody Durham a great sports broadcaster — besides his distinct voice of course — is one of the things he’s going to miss the least now that he’s retired.

Durham, who called North Carolina men’s basketball and football games for 40 years and was the guest speaker at Wednesday’s Greater Greenville Sports Club meeting, said preparing for gameday broadcasts played a vital role in his success, but it also took a lot out of him.


“I get the question all the time, ‘Do I miss it?’ Yes, you don’t do anything like that for 40 years and not miss it,” said Durham, a UNC graduate who officially stepped away from the microphone six months ago. “But I will tell you this in all honesty, I do not miss the preparation it took to get ready to do those games.”
