Broadcast Team

1130 The Fan is pleased to announce the 2013 high school football broadcast team of 1130 The Fan Sports Director Vaso Michels and Tom Jones. Michels returns for his third year as the play-by-play announcer for the ESPN brand in Terre Haute. Michels will partner with Wabash Valley Football Coaches Association All-Star Game Director, Tom Jones, who will handle the color commentary duties.

Jones began his coaching career in 1998 at the youth football ranks in Terre Haute. Jones went on to win three county championships and served as the Youth League President in 2004. Later that year Jones was named as an assistant coach on the Terre Haute North Freshmen team as well as WVFCA All-Star Game Director. Jones was then named the Head Freshmen Coach at Terre Haute North in 2005. Although he has since put his coaching days behind him, Jones continues to do exemplary work as the WVFCA All-Star Game Director.

“Tom brings his knowledge of football (from youth to high school) to the broadcast booth, after years of coaching here in the Wabash Valley. When you add that on top of his work as the WVFCA All-Star Game director, Tom is a great addition to our team. We are extremely excited to have him on our staff and look forward to opening up the season on Friday” said Michels.

Jones will continue to give back to a football community he has been involved with for over a decade. “I love high school football and I am looking forward to a great opportunity of sharing local games to the fan base in the Wabash Valley” said Jones.

Michels and Jones will team up for their first broadcast of the season on Friday August 23rd, from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, when Terre Haute North takes on Castle High School in the Horseshoe Classic—Friday Night Kickoff. The remaining scheduled games will be simulcast on 99.5 FM.
