Luke Mauro has been a play-by-play broadcaster who also hosted sports talk shows. While he still wants broadcasting games to be part of his career, Mauro is now putting sports talk first. He’s joining SportsMap Radio Network in Houston.
Mauro will co-host The Sports Kings weekdays from 4 to 6 pm EDT. “I look forward to working alongside Gene Thompson and continuing to build the great brand,” Mauro enthuses.
Mauro spent the past five years in Charleston, SC as the play-by-play voice of The Citadel and as a host on the local ESPN Radio affiliate. The SportsMap opportunity arose when the network’s COO and PD Craig Larson asked STAA to help fill the opening. Mauro becomes the 14th STAA member hired by Larson in STAA’s 17 years.
“Luke is a tremendous broadcaster,” says Larson. “He’s someone who’s been on our radar for quite some time. I think pairing him with Gene will be a perfect mix of hard hitting sports talk with extremely charismatic personalities.”
“The opportunity to work with Gow Media, and take my voice to the national level, on one of the most affiliated networks, was a no-brainer,” said Mauro.
