John Ward, the former “Voice of the Vols,” has died.
Senator Lamar Alexander said, “When it came to UT sports, listening to John Ward was almost as good as watching the game. In fact, many Vol fans at many games brought their radios to make sure they could do both. John was a generous, courteous, enthusiastic ambassador for the University of Tennessee. He brought joy into our lives, and we will miss him.”
Senator Alexander served as president of the University of Tennessee from 1988 to 1991.
