Ohio County broadcaster takes in first Sweet Sixteen with son at his side
Jerry Wright, left, and his son Josh did the radio broadcast of Ohio County's first-round state tournament game on Wednesday for WXMZ-FM 99.9 in Hartford. Over the years Jerry Wright had chances to come to UK and Sweet Sixteen games in Rupp Arena, but he didn't want to come until he had a chance to be on the floor to broadcast an Ohio County game in the Sweet Sixteen. "It was a big thrill for him, and it was special for me that I could do it with him," Josh said.
