Get to know the voice behind Villanova Basketball

Ryan Fannon is a big part of Villanova Basketball, and it’s a big part of him.


Happy Friday Nova Nation! Like a cool, refreshing summer breeze Chris made a brief appearance back on the Arizin before retreating to what I can only assume is some secret beach getaway. Don’t worry, Uncle Brendan is still here to bring you the links instead of sipping liquid refreshment while tanning on the beach... man I gotta get in on whatever deal Chris has around here!

But seriously, great to have our guy back if only for a day. In the links, I came across an article on another one of Villanova’s guys, Ryan Fannon. You don’t hear much about the radio play by play man, rather he’s usually giving us insight on everything else with the program. But his story is a great one and a perfect way to wind down the week. Have a great weekend Nova Nation, we’ll be back to all collectively rage on the NCAA more next week.

In other news, Josh Green is close to cutting his list, and no one is surprised that the NCAA bumbled this rule change thing... again. Enjoy!

Ryan Fannon is a typical family man. Six months of the year, though, Fannon spends most of his evenings and weekends on the road. He wrapped up his 20th season in April as the official voice of Villanova University basketball. As if he wasn’t busy enough, he’s also been calling Villanova football games as a color analyst or play-by-play announcer for 25 years.
