Fisher will be joined by veteran sportscaster and sports writer and WNSR Radio show host Greg Pogue on color commentary.
“I want to thank WNSR Radio and station general manager Ted Johnson and operations manager Adam Johnson for this great opportunity to return to the broadcast booth,” Fisher said. “We have put together a great slate of games, and I look forward to working with Greg, whom I’ve known for years.”

“Joe Fisher is a Nashville sports media icon,” Adam Johnson said, “and we are excited to add Joe to the WNSR Radio team. Through our partnerships over the years with Vanderbilt, Joe has already been a part of the family on the station. I want to thank Jonathan Shaffer for his work for five years as lead play-by-play announcer during previous seasons.”
Pogue is host of “The Greg Pogue & Jon Burton Show” on WNSR-Nashville Sports Radio and is the play-by-play announcer for Tennessee State football and basketball.
“When I started doing play-by-play at TSU a decade or so ago, Joe was one of the first play-by-play announcers I approached for advice,” Pogue said. “He is such a true pro and wonderful person. It will be an honor to broadcast games with him.”
