Former UNC Announcer Woody Durham Being Honored by NFF

The National Football Foundation and College Football Hall of Fame is honoring Woody Durham, the longtime voice of North Carolina sports, with the 2011 Chris Schenkel Award, which recognizes a broadcaster who has enjoyed a long, distinguished career covering college football for one school.

Durham, who retired in April, covered Tar Heel sports for four decades. He was named North Carolina sportscaster of the year a dozen times during his career.

“Woody has been synonymous with Tar Heel football for four decades,” said NFF President and CEO Steve Hatchell. “An exceptionally talented broadcaster, his long list of honors reflects his unique ability to make fans feel as they are standing on the sidelines. We are proud to place him among the imposing list of storytellers who have previously claimed the Schenkel Award.”

Durham will be honored on December 6 at a dinner in New York City, where broadcasting legends Verne Lundquist and Brent Musburger will also be recognized by the NFF.
