Dan Hoard was born to be a broadcaster.

Just ask him.

"I joke that when the doctor pulled me out of my mother's womb and slapped me on the behind, I said, 'That's 15 yards for unnecessary roughness.'"

It's been figurative touchdowns, buzzer-beaters and walk-off home runs ever since for the Jamestown native and 1981 Southwestern Central School graduate.

"I have no complaints," Hoard said. "I tell people I've never worked a day in my life."

In other words, he's always considered his job a labor of love.
