Network broadcasts will be headed by Don Chiodo, a five-year veteran of the CMU Sports Network, who will handle play-by-play for football and men's basketball. He will be joined by color commentator Brock Gutierrez and sideline reporter Justin Hoff, who also will serve as the host of the pregame show.
Chiodo hosted the network's football pregame and halftime shows during the 2009 season, a role he also filled from 1996-99. A 1990 CMU graduate, Chiodo also has provided color commentary for select CMU basketball broadcasts over the past two seasons.
Chiodo has been covering CMU sports for more than two decades for various radio and television outlets and is a familiar face and voice to Chippewa fans. He will also host the Front Row Seat show which is heard every Thursday night during the football and basketball seasons and features interviews with Central Michigan coaches and athletes.
The broadcasting veteran has worked with ESPN, CBS, NBC, and the Michigan High School Athletic Association. He is also an Associated Press award winner.
Gutierrez returns to the CMU Sports Network for his second season. A 2007 inductee into the CMU Athletics Hall of Fame, Gutierrez was a three-year starter who earned All-Mid-American Conference first team honors as a center in 1995. He played 10 seasons in the National Football League with the Cincinnati Bengals, San Francisco 49ers and Detroit Lions.
Hoff is the newest member of the network team. Along with his radio responsibilities, he also will host interviews and features on the CMU Sports Zone, one of the nation's largest libraries of free online video content, and serve as play-by-play announcer for women's basketball, baseball and softball.
