Hubert is the only broadcaster in history to call national championship wins for the same school in college football, men's basketball and baseballUniv. of Florida

Longtime Univ. of Florida broadcaster Mick Hubert is "retiring after the UF-South Carolina baseball series this weekend" after 33 years serving as the "Voice of the Gators," according to Scott Carter of the GAINESVILLE SUN. Hubert, who has called every UF football game since the ’89 season opener, said, “I don’t know if I can explain how I knew, but I knew. I had been considering this for a little while.” He replaced David Steele and is the “only broadcaster in history” to call national championship wins for the same school in college football, men's basketball and baseball. He stopped doing radio play-by-play for baseball after the ‘17 season but "continues to call games for the SEC Network and its streaming services." The Univ. Athletic Association will have an “in-stadium recognition” of Hubert's career on the video board during this weekend's baseball series. There also are “plans to honor Hubert at a football game this fall” (GAINSVILLE SUN, 5/19). In Tampa Bay, Matt Baker writes Hubert is the “second longtime college sports announcer to announce his retirement this year.” Florida State’s Gene Deckerhoff had his “farewell” during the school’s spring game last month (TAMPA BAY TIMES, 5/19).
