The “Voice of the Cougars” has left KSL, prompting speculation of stronger involvement with BYU.
Greg Wrubell started working at KSL as an intern in 1989. He was hired later that year and graduated from BYU in 1990 with a degree in communications.
In 1996 he took over play-by-play duties for BYU basketball games, replacing Paul James. In 2001 he became the play-by-play announcer for BYU football games. The details of his arrangement with BYU are pending.
Wrubell’s contract with the IMG Sports Network is separate from his KSL deal, so he will still have play-by-play responsibilities for BYU football, basketball and women’s soccer.
Wrubell had been a producer, reporter, host and announcer for KSL since his tenure began there 27 years ago. His “Cougar Quizzes” – weekly BYU online quizzes during the college football offseason – were particularly popular.
