Toby Rowland is a two-time, Emmy-winning sportscaster, the author of a best-selling children's book Unhitch the Wagon, and currently the Sooners' voice. In addition, Toby hosts a morning sports talk show in Oklahoma City and coaching shows.
Rowland started out as an accounting major in college before he realized it was not what he wanted to do long-term. Toby met with his college, where they put together a sports broadcasting degree. He later had an internship at Channel 9, and he started calling games his senior year at the university. He stayed on as Sports Director, calling sports games for his alma mater for the next five years.
In 2009, he received the opportunity to join the radio crew at OU as a sideline reporter, and when Bob announced his retirement, the president of the team decided that Toby would fill his shoes.
In this episode, Toby talks about the influence of mentors on his career, turning points in his career, and how Toby handles the negative press.
