Hoyt Purvis, Voices of the Razorbacks Booksigning

  • Nightbird Books 205 W Dickson St Fayetteville AR 72701 (map)

Join us the Friday evening before the Auburn football game for a little Razorback history with Hoyt Purvis. Hoyt has taught at the U of A since 1982 with  courses in journalism, international relations, and political science.  He also established the university's first sports journalism course and  taught it for twenty-five years.

The creation and development of the Razorback Sports Network not only  helped to build a loyal following for the Razorbacks, but also forged a  close identification among Razorback fans with broadcasters such as Paul  Eels and Bud Campbell, who became "voices of the Razorbacks." A sense  of kinship developed within the audience, and the broadcasts of  Razorback sports have become an integral part of the state's culture.
