THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JASON ROMANO, FEATURING BRIAN HANNI
Brian Hanni is in his seventh season as the “Voice of the Jayhawks” calling football, men’s basketball and baseball for the University of Kansas in Lawrence. He is also an author, and his book, “Game Maker — A Creative Kid Becomes the Father of Basketball,” is his first children’s book. It was inspired by time he spent with Dr. Naismith’s grandson, Jim Naismith.
Hanni has also long had a passion for inspiring youth, and serves many youth-based charities including his own pediatric cancer organization.
Today on the podcast, we talk to Brian Hanni about living out his dream job as the broadcast voice of his alma mater. He also shares how his faith in Jesus has grown over the years, and why his desire to help and serve others stems from his desire to honor God.
