Bill Rogan and Jeff Andrews first hosted "Artificial Turf" in February of 2003. They first teamed up calling high school football and basketball in Colorado on cable television in the fall of 2000. Andy Cornell was added as a co-host in 2005 as other obligations have limited Jeff's role to isolated hosting assignments and guest appearances. Casey Bloyer is the third man of the Turf roundtable. Justin Adams was latest addition to The Turf.
Bill has more than 27-years of sports broadcasting experience in both radio and television. He was the basketball and hockey play-by-play broadcaster for Army for 11 seasons and announced 5 seasons of minor league baseball. A graduate of Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Bill was a light-hitting infielder on the Dukes baseball team. His proudest athletic moment though was winning the Artificial Turf Bowling tournament in February of 2004. He currently plays in an old guys baseball league (over 35. Baseball, not softball!)
Currently, Bill is the sports director at KNUS Radio in Denver and is the morning sports anchor. He also broadcasts amateur wrestling, including the Colorado High School State Championships, as well as high school football and basketball on KCCB Channel 8 television in Broomfield, Colorado. Bill has also announced horse racing at Arapahoe Park and says it is the most difficult sport he has called.
Andy is a Colorado College graduate and he was a standout on the Tigers football team. Prior to playing in college, Andy played football and ran track at Englewood (CO) High School where he has returned as a coach for both sports. A local businessman, Andy is a recruiter and is always looking for sharp people. If you are looking to make a career change or for a part-time opportunity, contact Andy at 303-790-9050.
Andy is well versed in all sports, especially football. However, Bill thinks Andy needs to improve his attitude towards baseball.
Casey, who played football at Chadron State, is a former Turf intern who paid a visit to the show in February of 2007. He sat down, put on a head set and then started talking. He hasn't left since. Casey, a Yankees fan, is a Rangeview HS grad and also an Ohio Center For Broadcasting product. He has announced baseball and football.
Justin Adams is a graduate of Colorado University (2009...Double Major no less!) and has been with the Turf since June of 2008. The former CU Buffalo Tight End has also worked for Fox Sports. Casey never lets Justin forget his first college football game....a Buffs loss to Montana State for which CU fans everywhere blame him.
Don Pablo Apodaca is the producer and board op for the show. He has no credentials or credibility.
Thanks for stopping by.
