Here We Go...Again!

Hello from Eugene. I'm back and, not trying to brag, better than ever!!! (One can only hope.)

For those here for the first time, please allow me to introduce myself. I'm Bill Crawford. I'm 65 years of age and live and work in Eugene. I'm a native Oregonian, born in Medford on November 8, 1956. I'm a 1974 graduate of Winston Churchill High School in Eugene (Go Lancers!) and a 1978 graduate of what was then Southern Oregon State College, now Southern Oregon University (Go Raiders!), where I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Speech Communications. 

I'm married with two daughters and two very handsome (if I do say so myself) grandsons. 

I'm a long-time member of the broadcast media, 45-plus years in radio. I also have experience as a voiceover artist. I currently work as a radio personality, account executive and sportscaster at a small, locally-owned combo in Eugene, KKNX (FM 105.1, AM 840, and KEED (FM 104.3, AM 1450 and KKNX is a full-service classic hits radio station with live and local Oregon Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame personalities in morning and afternoon drive and the only Eugene radio stations with a local staff meteorologist, plus local and national news, up-to-the-second traffic updates during drive times and Oregon State Beavers football, men's basketball and baseball games. KEED is a classic country station with live personalities 24/7. I also am an account executive for locally-owned KORE Fox Sports Eugene (FM 95.7, AM 1050 and It's a Fox Sports Radio affiliate featuring Dan Patrick, Colin Cowherd, Doug Gottlieb and from Portland's 750 The Game, the Rose City's own John Canzano. KORE is also the Eugene affiliate of the Portland Trail Blazers and Los Angeles Chargers. Why the Chargers? Simple. QB Justin Herbert is a Eugene native, a graduate of Sheldon High School and a former Oregon Ducks quarterback. (See, I told you it was simple.)

During the summer I'm the radio play-by-play and stadium voice of the Emerald Overhead Door Challengers American Legion baseball team. Games are on KKNX as we usually carry 25 regular-season games plus all post-season games. The Emerald Overhead Door Challengers are the defending state champions based in Eugene and was one day away from playing for the championship of the NW Regionals and possibly going to the American Legion World Series. 

It's actually fun and rewarding to be able to be a positive experience in people's lives. With this Craw's Corner blog (named for Greg Crawford, no relation except he's a great person, cares about people and puts on some outstanding sports luncheons every so often featuring the cream of the Northwest crop), my goal is to be a positive influence on a reader's life. Hopefully yours.

For now, thanks for reading my first blog in several months. There'll be more to come. I promise.
