Longtime radioman Scott Marsh, who has been working as a broadcaster long enough to see the highs and lows of the Davis and Sacramento area sports scene, will continue to lend his perspective in a new radio show on KSAC, 105.5 FM.

Marsh has been announcing UC Davis games since he was a student at the school and the sports director at KDVS, 90.3 FM, the campus radio station, more than 15 years ago. Marsh is heard most often on Sacramento’s KHTK, 1140 AM, where he is the voice of Aggie football among other duties. He also calls UCD men’s basketball games on KSAC.

But beginning Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m., local fans can hear more Marsh and much more about their Aggies. That’s because UCD Athletics has partnered with the Sacramento-based KSAC to present “Aggie Sports Update,” a 30-minute show that will be hosted by Marsh and feature interviews with UCD coaches and athletes, news on all 23 of the teams and chances for listeners to win tickets and prizes.

After its first edition, the program will continue each Tuesday, with the exception of Christmas and New Year’s Day. KSAC Sports Director Phil Getman is planning to join Marsh on the air as a co-host.

“I’m looking forward to co-hosting the new show ‘Aggie Sports Update’ with Scott Marsh and taking the next positive step into a long-term relationship between UC Davis Athletics and Aggies 105.5 KSAC,” he said. “I could not be more pleased with the staff at UC Davis and its willingness to jump in and support this media partnership.”

Tuesday’s inaugural program will highlight Aggie hoops, featuring men’s head coach Jim Les and women’s mentor Jennifer Gross. Listeners will get an update on the progress of the respective UCD programs.

The show will stream live on www.ucdavisaggies.com and archived programs can be heard through the same website. There also is discussion of possibly putting together a podcast in the future.

“We’re always looking to new opportunities to connect with UC Davis fans,” said Cindy Spiro, an associate athletics director for UCD. ” ‘Aggie Sports Update’ allows us another way to reach them through the radio and Internet.”

KSAC is going into its second year of covering UCD basketball with Marsh doing play-by-play alongside analyst Bill Herenda.

“(The new show) is another step in the right direction for the UCD program,” Marsh said. “In addition to coverage for football on KHTK, and KSAC’s coverage of basketball, we now have a show that will act as a great way to highlight all sports.

“I’m certainly happy working where I am. UCD is a great place to broadcast. The programs are up-and-coming, many have moved up to a bigger Division I stature. I’m glad to be a part of it.”

Note: Marsh has many goof memories from the local sports scene but one stands out — the Aggie football team’s 20-17 upset victory over Stanford in 2005. “I was literally about 20 feet away when Jon Grant delivered a touchdown pass to Blaise Smith with eight seconds left on the clock,” Marsh said. “I remember being picked up and being carried around. There was such a mob on the sideline — it was crazy.”
