Baylor University women’s basketball announced the program’s new radio team for the 2018-19 season. Bruce Gietzen and Maggie Davis-Stinnett will replace the Lady Bears’ longtime radio team of Rick May and Lori Fogleman who retired after last season.
Gietzen, who is well-known on campus, serving as the Director of Student Publications and teaching in the journalism department, will take over as the play-by-play announcer. A member of the Baylor Athletic Hall-of-Fame, Davis-Stinnett will be the broadcast’s color analyst.
As a former Lady Bear, Davis-Stinnett is one of the most successful basketball players to go through Baylor’s program, ranking fifth in scoring and sixth in rebounding all-time at the school. Davis-Stinnett played for the Lady Bears from 1988-1991, getting inducted into the school’s Hall-of-Fame in 2001.
While Gietzen works at Baylor University, his career also includes extensive media credentials. Gietzen was the color analyst for the Houston Astros radio broadcast from 1988-1990. The new voice of the Lady Bears spent 13 years as news anchor and managing editor at KXXV-TV in Waco, an ABC affiliate. For seven-years, Gietzen also hosted and produced pre, post and halftime shows for the Houston Rockets.
Gietzen and Davis-Stinnett will broadcast the women’s basketball games on the Baylor IMG Sports Network.
