Today, listeners associate hearing Bob Lamey on the air with one thing – Indianapolis Colts football.

That hasn’t always been the case.  Hockey.  Auto Racing.  Pro Basketball.  High School championships.  Lamey broadcasted all of these sports extensively at various stops along his career, including over two decades as the Sports Director of then WIBC-1070AM, before getting his shot with the NFL.

Interesting topics that came out in his discussion with Radio Indiana, include:

  • That “Hockey Bob”, as he was called in the 1970s, thought he’d only stay in Indy 2 years when he moved to do the Racers of the now defunct World Hockey Association.
  • How he now accepts the volume of sponsorship mentions and juggles peppering them in to each Colts game.
  • That his favorite broadcast calls he’s ever made are not of football, but of a hockey championship and the closest finish ever of the Indianapolis 500.

Hear him details of these, and more, in entire podcast with the Voice of the Colts.
