Jim Fagan, professional voice, WVU alum, passes away

Jim Fagan, a WVU graduate whose baritone voice carried him through a career of voiceover announcing and sports production, has died. Fagan, 72, passed away at his home Tuesday afternoon from the effects of Parkinson’s disease.

There’s a good chance that while you may not have recognized his face, you knew his voice.

Over the years Fagan did voiceover work the NFL, the NBA, the Olympics, NBC Sports, the Mountaineer Sports Network, the MetroNews Radio Network and hundreds of commercials.


Heard about it through the In All Airness Facebook page. Absolutely legendary voice; NBA Action wasn't the same after he left. RIP.
