Replacing Rod: The new voice of the Tigers has some new responsibilities

AUBURN, Ala. (WIAT) — Andy Burcham takes over the play-by-play duties for Auburn Football starting Aug. 31, when the Tigers play Oregon in Dallas.

Burcham says the job is a dream come true, but it comes after a nightmare in which he lost his best friend and colleague, Rod Bramblett. The longtime voice of the Tigers and his wife were killed in a car wreck in May.

Burcham has stepped in to fill his friend’s role, and he’s fulfilling another promise in the process. Jack Royer sat down with him inside Jordan-Hare Stadium.
