Schuiling to Serve as CMU Football Radio Voice

MOUNT PLEASANT Central Michigan University alumnus Ryan Schuiling will be the football play-by-play voice on the CMU Sports Network this season.

Schuiling is entering his first season calling CMU football games after serving as the basketball play-by-play voice last season.

Schuiling will team with color analyst Stan Shingles, who is entering his fourth season with the radio network in that role. Bryan Wieferich also returns to the broadcast team as a pregame and halftime show contributor as well as a spotter during the broadcast.

“Ryan will fill a very important role in our new organized CMU Athletics broadcasting department,” said Nick Williams, associate athletic director for sales and corporate relations. “This new structure will offer new revenue opportunities for the athletics department to capitalize on, as well help broaden the visibility and reach of Chippewa athletics.”

He hosted an afternoon sports talk show and called play-by-play for the CBA’s Grand Rapids Hoops and various high school sports while at WBBL-AM in Grand Rapids from 1997-2001. He then spent two years in Richmond, Va., as the media relations director and broadcaster for the Richmond Speed of arenafootball2.

Schuiling returned to CMU for graduate school from 2003-05 where he was a graduate assistant in the broadcasting department. He worked in media relations with the Grand Rapids Griffins minor league hockey team for two years while also calling play-by-play for Grand Rapids Community College football. He worked at JTV in Jackson for a year before heading to Florida Atlantic University’s sports information department. He was at FAU for a brief time before returning to Mount Pleasant.
