Colts’ longtime radio play-by-play announcer to retire
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Bob Lamey is retiring as the Indianapolis Colts‘ longtime radio voice.
In a statement issued Sunday by the team, Lamey said in part, “it’s time.”
He served as the Colts’ play-by-play announcer for 31 seasons, from 1984 through 1991 and again from 1995 through 2018.
Lamey also broadcast games for the Indiana Racers from 1974 through 1977 and the Indiana Pacers from 1977 through 1984. And he worked as the sports director for WIBC radio in Indianapolis.
Lamey was inducted into the Indiana Sports Broadcasters and Writers Hall of Fame in 2008.
He will be replaced by Matt Taylor for Monday night’s preseason broadcast. Taylor has been the team’s manager of radio production since 2012.
