Bostock in, Fralic out of Pitt radio booth

Former quarterback Pat Bostick, who was under center for some of the Panthers’ most stirring victories in recent years, will join Bill Hillgrove in the booth to form Pitt’s new radio broadcast team for the 2011 season.

Bostick was a three-year letterman for Pitt (2007-08, 2010) and quarterbacked the Panthers to such memorable victories as their 13-9 upset of West Virginia in 2007 and 36-33 quadruple-overtime win at Notre Dame in 2008. An honors graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, Bostick earned his bachelor’s degree in three years and is currently pursuing his master’s degree in Pitt’s School of Education.

In addition to game day, Bostick will have a weekly guest segment on Sportsradio 93.7 The Fan, to discuss all things Pitt football.

Bostick replaces the monotone and Bill Fralic, who spent seven seasons as Pitt’s radio analyst.

“I've greatly enjoyed the opportunity to work Pitt football radio broadcasts the past seven years,” Fralic said. “It has been an honor to call the games with Bill Hillgrove, who is truly the best in the broadcast business as well as a dear friend. I’m excited for Pat Bostick, who has made Pitt very proud on and off the field. I know he will do a great job on the air. Though I'm stepping away from the booth, I will certainly continue to follow the Panthers very closely and wish Coach Todd Graham and the team the very best this year.”

Hillgrove begins his 38th year as the “Voice of the Panthers” and 42nd overall doing Pitt football broadcasts.
