Greg Davis, who serves as public address announcer for several teams at the U.S. Naval Academy, will take over for Bruce Cunningham when the Ravens play their first home game of the year on Sept. 15, the team announced.
Cunningham, the sports director at Fox 45, announced last month he was stepping down after 20 years recapping plays and making public service announcements at M&T Bank Stadium.
A longtime Baltimore Colts fan who couldn’t root for an NFL team until the Ravens arrived, Davis said he’s looking forward to being a part of the game-day experience.
“I know that many, many stadiums have a great crowd,” he told the team’s website. “Being a part of M&T Bank Stadium, few things can compare.”
Since 2000, Davis has worked home games for Navy’s football team, men’s and women’s basketball teams, men’s and women’s lacrosse teams, and others. He’s also an announcer for WNAV radio station in Annapolis.
Per the Ravens, Davis will keep a role at the station, and the athletic department at Navy confirmed to Baltimore Fishbowl he will still be affiliated with the academy.
Davis said he sees the role of public-address announcer as an extension of the fans.
“It gives them that voice to kind of realize their excitement and energy,” he said. “And that feeds my energy.”
