Columbia, Mo. - Mizzou Women's Basketball has announced the addition of Brad Tregnago to this year's radio broadcast team. Tregnago will serve as the team's play-by-play announcer alongside color analyst Michael Porter.
"We are looking forward to having Brad join our basketball family," head coach Robin Pingeton said. "He brings very solid experience, great passion and a strong work ethic. We think he will be a great addition to our program."
Tregnago is familiar with the Mizzou family as he is a 2006 graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism. He also worked as the public address announcer for Missouri's softball program. Before graduating from the University of Missouri, Tregnago worked as an intern, helping with the production of Mizzou's football and basketball broadcasts and also worked to produce the coaches' talk shows.
Before joining the Zimmer Radio and Marketing Group, Tregnago served as assistant program director, sports director and webmaster for KRES Radio in Moberly, Mo. With KRES, Tregnago accumulated over 10 years of experience performing and coordinating play-by-play broadcasts for college and high school athletics including football, basketball, baseball, soccer, softball, wrestling and track & field. Not only did he produce in-game content, but Tregnago had his hands in the production of weekly sports talk shows and news reports as well.
Tregnago's efforts as a play-by-play announcer have not gone unrecognized as he is a recent recipient of the Missouri Broadcasters Association Award. Tregnago received the award in June of 2012, just before his move to the Zimmer Radio and Marketing Group
With the move to Columbia, Tregnago has become the News Director for Zimmer's Columbia radio stations. Tregnago can be heard anchoring the morning newscasts on four stations, and assisting the morning show on Eagle 93.9.
"I'm very grateful for the opportunity given to me by Mizzou, Mizzou Sports Properties and Zimmer Radio and Marketing Group," Tregnago said. As an MU grad, this really is a dream come true."
Tregnago was selected to work with the Women's Basketball program through an interview and audition process which was overseen by Zimmer Radio and Marketing Group and Mizzou Sports Properties, in conjunction with the Mizzou Department of Athletics. Mizzou Sports Properties (MSP), a property of Learfield Sports, is the multi-media rights partner for Mizzou Athletics.
