DENTON – North Texas Athletic Director Rick Villarreal announced that legendary broadcaster and longtime voice of the Mean Green George Dunham will be inducted into the North Texas Athletic Hall of Fame.

Dunham, who recently announced his retirement from the Mean Green Radio Network, will be inducted as the 2014 recipient of the Fred McCain Award. The 2014 Hall of Fame class will be inducted on April 18, 2015, at Apogee Stadium in conjunction with the North Texas spring football game.

Dunham was the “Voice of the Mean Green” for 21 years and a part of the Mean Green Radio Network for nearly 30 years.

Dunham began his broadcasting career with the legendary Bill Mercer in 1990, and took over the play-by-play duties in 1994. He was behind the mic for two of the biggest wins in football history, the 2002 New Orleans Bowl and the 2014 Heart of Dallas Bowl. In perhaps his most memorable call, Dunham coined the phrase “Do you believe in the Mean Green” in the 1997 upset win over Texas Tech.

Dunham is a 1988 graduate of North Texas and was the winner of the 1996 Ulys Knight Spirit Award. The veteran broadcaster began his career at campus station KNTU and went on to the Texas State Network and KRLD. Dunham is now a household name as part of the award winning “Dunham and Miller” show on KTCK 1310 The Ticket. The duo has been voted the 1999, 2000 and 2001 Radio Personalities of the Year.
