Stanford on Radio
KTCT - The Ticket 1050 AM
KTCT (1050 AM in San Francisco) - "The Ticket 1050" - is the radio home of Stanford Athletics. The Ticket began carrying Stanford men's basketball games during the 1997-98 season and will begin its first season as the flagship station for all Stanford football games in 1998. Bob Murphy, a familiar name to the Stanford community, will once again handle the color commentary chores. Murphy, who has been a part of the Stanford broadcast team for over 30 years, is a former Sports Information Director at Stanford and Athletic Director at San Jose State University. Murphy was Stanford's SID during the football team's back-to-back Rose Bowl years in 1971 and '72. He is also the Cardinal's play-by-play announcer for Stanford's men's basketball radio broadcasts. Ted Robinson returned to The Farm in 1997 to handle the play-by-play duties. Robinson, who is also a play-by-play announcer for the San Francisco Giants, was Stanford's play-by-play voice from 1985-87. Robinson, a member of CBS' college basketball broadcast team, worked for CBS at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan. His previous college football experience includes two years as the play-by-play voice for Notre Dame on their SportsChannel America telecasts and as the play-by-play broadcaster for the Big East Conference game of the week.
