Longtime broadcaster David Garrett is slated to make a visit to Madill High School at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday (April 23) to speak to the video editing-journalism class about his career in broadcasting. Garrett hosts a nightly sports radio talk show on The Franchise radio station in Oklahoma City. He covers the Oklahoma City Thunder for the station and files regular video reports for Tyler Media. He serves as the radio play-by-play voice for the UCO Bronchos in Edmond. He is starting his ninth year with the program in 2015.
Garrett's career in broadcasting spans nearly four decades. He received broadcasting awards while working as the radio play-by-play voice for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League. He called the Super Bowl on the radio airwaves for the Cowboys during the 1995-96 season. He worked radio for the New Orleans Saints before his stint with Dallas.
Garrett is a native of Oklahoma that began his broadcasting career as a high school student in Henryetta. He has worked for the University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University and Oral Roberts on broadcasts during his distinguished career. 
"I want students to hear directly from a true professional in the field of broadcasting," Brandon Jacks said. "(David) Garrett has reached levels in broadcasting that few ever experience. He remains humble and dedicated to his craft. I believe our students deserve hearing from one of the best."
