LSU Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Joe Alleva has named Chris Blair the next Voice of the Tigers.

Blair, who currently serves the same position at Georgia Southern University, will become the Director of Radio Broadcasting.

"The incredible opportunity and privilege to follow behind the legendary Jim Hawthorne, one of the most recognized and respected voices in college sports is truly a dream come true," Blair said. "To work and represent the most powerful brand in college athletics that has the nation's most passionate fans is an honor and one that I do not take lightly."

The new 'Voice' is set to begin in December, and start calling Tigers' baseball games.

Current LSU radio broadcaster Jim Hawthorne will be retiring after the upcoming football and basketball seasons.
