WSAT_BPoole

SALISBURY, N.C. -- The longtime “Voice of Catawba” on the radio, Buddy Poole, announced that the 2021 season will be his last of play by play for Catawba football. Poole has been the voice on the radio for Catawba for the past 20 years.

Poole serves as General manager of WSAT, 103.3FM/1280AM, WEGO, CONCORD 98.3FM/1410AM AND 1490AM WSTP in Salisbury. He bought WSAT in 2002 and sold it to Salisbury Attorney Bill Graham in September 2014.

Poole started doing Catawba football in 2002, the first year of Chip Hester’s tenure with the Indians. He added a live coaches show from the Original Steak House and Sports Theater in 2004.  He was the first to broadcast Catawba Women’s basketball, starting in 2002. Poole has traveled to Pennsylvania, Arkansas, Georgia, Maryland, South Carolina, and Virginia covering the Indians in football, basketball, and baseball.

Buddy Poole is 75 and  plans to do one more season of Catawba baseball and Rowan County American Legion Baseball before retiring.

“This is my 58th year in radio and I love what I do”, Poole said. He has quite a resume in the broadcasting industry. He has been a general manager since he was 26 and has been part of owner in High Point and Thomasville. He also was general manager of WPCM a 100,000-thousand-watt FM in Burlington.

“I have started writing my book about several “Morning Men” in radio and one of them is me”, continued Poole. “It’s a romantic comedy and I need to get it done before I forget all the stories accumulated in the sixties, seventies, eighty’s, ninety’s and up till now. Being friends with country music legends like Loretta Lynn, Conway Twitty, Faron Young, Oak Ridge Boys and many more plus  sports figures like Jim Valvano, Dean Smith and others will provide a fun book.”

So tune in and enjoy Buddy’s last season of Catawba Indian football on WSAT 103.3FM.
