“I had a feeling. It’s a new administration," Miles told WCTV-6.
Miles served as the play-by-play announcer for FAMU football for 30 years.
WCTV-6 reported that FAMU Sports Information Director Vaughn Wilson “says the move to a new play by play announcer - and a smaller broadcast team - will allow the university to save more than $20,000 a year and give it access to more ad revenue too.”
Miles told the Tallahassee Democrat that his production company, Vantage Radio, earned $73,000 annually for its broadcasting work on FAMU football games. For the past five years, his contract was with the Rattler Boosters, which paid him with revenue it made from advertising sales. Prior to that, Miles had an agreement with the Department of Athletics.
