Meet your new Stadium Announcer team07 May 2022
The vastly experienced brothers, both Season Ticket holders at Tynecastle, have spent the past 15 years providing the announcing and music for FIFA and UEFA international matches at Hampden Park, as well as Scottish Cup and Premier Sports Cup semi-finals and finals.
Operating under their company, Woosh, Graeme and Keith have also been involved with 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and provide announcer services for the Netball Superleague at The Emirates Arena in Glasgow.
Excitement continues to build ahead of the new campaign with Season Tickets sold out and European group stage football on the horizon. The new stadium announcer team will front a brand-new matchday experience at Tynecastle, aided by the installation of two big screens, one in the Main Stand and the other in the Wheatfield Stand – enabling sightlines from all areas of the ground.
The aim is to have the screens in place in time for the Europa League play-off tie in mid-to-late August. Graeme will take on the role as Stadium Announcer with Keith acting as the Floor Manager for the big screens and music.
Graeme has many high-profile events under his belt, including being the stadium commentator at the London 2012 Beach Volleyball, while Keith has vast experience of coordinating entertainment and is highly experienced in the role of Show Caller at indoor and outdoor events, regularly working at awards shows at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC), most notably for the visits of Barack and Michele Obama and has worked at events such as The Forth Awards and Forth on The Fringe.
Graeme and Keith’s first game will be the league opener against Ross County on Saturday 30th July and the former Tynecastle High pupils can’t wait to get started.
“To say we are thrilled to take on this prestigious role is an understatement. We’ve both been Season Ticket holders at Tynecastle for years and, like so many others, have grown up with Scott Wilson as the Voice of Tynecastle,” said Keith.
“It’s a great time to be a Jambo; Season Tickets have sold out, the boys are back in Europe and we also have these fantastic new screens to look forward to, which I think will add a new dimension to the fan experience,” he continued.
“We know there’s big shoes to fill and we’re really excited to use our expertise to help evolve the matchday experience at Tynecastle. I’ve had a taste of it before having deputised as Stadium Announcer back in 2003 for the 4-4 game against Hibs and I’m looking forward to many more memorable games this season and beyond,” Graeme added.
