The Voice of the Grizzlies


Rick Trotter is the in-arena voice of the Memphis Grizzlies. He landed the job 7 years ago through an open-call audition, and he’s sat courtside as the Grizzlies have grown from an underdog to one of the best teams in the NBA. He’s seen the same change in the city as a whole, as Memphis has shed its past heartaches and become a city of hope and opportunity.

Grit. Grind. Choose 901.

Can’t get enough of Rick’s voice? There’s no better way to hear it than over the loudspeakers at FedEx Forum. So grab some tickets to the next Grizz game! Can’t get to a game? Stay in the loop with Rick’s always-entertaining Twitter feed.

Well, ok, not everything, but we try to keep a close pulse on the great things going on in the city, and it is our joy to share those things with you, three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday). No spam, cross our hearts.
