Woody Durham back at the microphone

Woody Durham records a segment in a studio at WNCW. 
 Woody Durham, who spent four decades as the sports voice of the Carolina Tar Heels before retiring in 2011, will be heard on the airwaves once more.

Durham will do Woody Durham’s Great Moments in Sports History”  on WNCW-FM (88.7 Spindale; 99.1, 100.3 Charlotte) during NPR’s “Morning Edition” beginning Monday.

His minute-long spots will focus on a historic sports anniversary for that day. 

 “I am enjoying the research and the spots hold a lot of memories for us all,” said Durham, 73, in a statement.

Durham started in radio at age 16 at WZKY-AM (1580) in his hometown of Albemarle. Durham graduated from UNC Chapel Hill in 1963 with a communications degree.

Durham recorded multiple radio spots earlier this week at WNCW-FM, which is operated by Isothermal Community College.
