Radio: Join Pat Bostick and the "Voice of the Panthers" Bill Hillgrove as they take you through game action.

...
Known to Pitt fans nationwide as the "Voice of the Panthers," Bill Hillgrove will handle football play-by-play duties for the 41st consecutive year. His accurate and descriptive style truly paints the picture for Pitt fans listening to the network. Hillgrove has a long association with the Panthers and Pittsburgh sports scene. Prior to taking over as the play-by-play man for Pitt football, Hillgrove served as the Panthers' color analyst from 1970-73. He has also served as the play-by-play man for Pitt basketball broadcasts since 1969.
Hillgrove is a 1962 graduate of Duquesne and has also been the Pittsburgh Steelers' play-by-play announcer since 1995. Hillgrove was named the 2007 recipient of the prestigious Chris Schenkel Award for excellence in college football broadcasting.
Joining Hillgrove in the booth for his fourth year as color analyst will be former Pitt quarterback Pat Bostick.


This year's recipient of the Cope ...

This year's recipient of the Cope award was Bill Hillgrove, longtime play-by-play announcer for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the football and basketball teams at the University of Pittsburgh. Cope, who died in 2008, worked alongside Hillgrove on Steelers broadcasts for more than a decade before he retired in 2005.

While not billed as a roast, his media colleagues made every effort to get a dig or two in while paying tribute to Hillgrove. And the list of those who made to trip to the little town of Hickory was impressive. Among those on hand to recognize Hillgrove and remember Cope were Andrew Stockey, Guy Junker and Sally Wiggin of WTAE-TV, where Hillgrove once served as sports director; Paul Alexander and Kent Tekulve of ROOT Sports; current Pirates broadcaster Steve Blass; Alby Oxenreiter of WPXI-TV; and Craig Wolfley, who patrols the sidelines during Steelers broadcasts.

...
To a person, they recognized Hillgrove as being a generous man who has a tough time saying no when asked to participate in community events. They also pointed out that he is, arguably, one of the best, if not the best, play-by-play guys in the National Football League. He has a style that makes it easy for fans to follow the games.
It was a point driven home by Alexander, who said Hillgrove is among a handful of announcers around the country whose presence at a game means fans need to stand up and take notice.
...
It's a formula that works today with Hillgrove, Wolfley and Tunch Ilkin.
...
Like Cope, Hillgrove has stayed involved in helping the communities around the Tri-State Area.
What made the evening even more special is that Hillgrove received the award, a creation of Lions Club member Rick Schohn and artist Fran Hnat, from Elizabeth Cope, Myron's daughter.
