Georgia will honor its former radio broadcast announcer Larry Munson tomorrow by officially naming Sanford Stadium’s broadcast booth as the “Larry Munson Broadcast Suite.” Today would have been Munson’s 90th birthday.

The Bulldogs host Tennessee tomorrow. Munson coined the first big moment of the Mark Richt era in 2001 as “Hobnail Boot” when Georgia upset the Vols in Knoxville on a last-second touchdown.

A plaque outside the Larry Munson Broadcast Suite will read:

“Dedicated to legendary Bulldog play-by-play announcer Larry Munson who served as the voice of the Bulldog Nation from 1966-2008. His dedication, loyalty, passion and extraordinary delivery over 42 years endeared him to Georgia fans in every city, state, and nation around the world, always urging the teams, and the fans, to ‘hunker down you guys.'”

Photos during Munson’s career will be displayed in the broadcast suite.
