Flemming excited to join networks

Like so many others involved with the conference, Dave Flemming acknowledges the Pac-12 may have been on the short end of media exposure over the years. That’s one of the reasons he is looking forward to joining the Pac-12 Networks as one of the play-by-play voices for the upcoming football season.

“Those of us out West have maybe spent some time over the years thinking the Pac-10, now the Pac-12, has gotten the short shrift,” Flemming said. “It’s a chance for us to do our own thing out here now.”

Flemming is no stranger to the Pac-12. He is a Stanford alum who later went on to become the Cardinal’s radio voice for both football and basketball. He also has extensive experience doing play-by-play for ESPN and has been a radio voice of the San Francisco Giants for nine years. Flemming called the Pac-12 championship game for ESPN radio last season.

“I’m really excited about it,” Flemming said. “As an alum and a longtime fan, I’m really happy that the league seems to be in such a good place right now. Once you go to one of these schools and are part of so many great moments, you have a deeper appreciation for what the whole thing means. I’ve really grown to love the conference.”

Flemming’s first assignment will be the Nevada-Cal game on Sept. 1. He will work analyst Coy Wire and sideline reporter Brooke Olzendam.
