Since 1983, Jim Louk has been the voice of USF Athletics.
Louk came to USF that year as the radio play-by-play announcer for the USF men's basketball team and served as the lead voice until the conclusion of the 1996-97 season. He then made the transition to football in USF's inaugural 1997 campaign, and still serves as the team's play-by-play announcer today. Louk will come into the 2016 football season having broadcast every Bulls football game in history - a span of more than 200 games.
He has handled USF TV play by play broadcasts on SportsChannel, Fox Sports Florida, and Brighthouse Sports Network. His career includes nearly 2,000 play by play broadcasts of USF events, including football, men's and women's basketball, baseball, softball, men's and women's soccer and volleyball.
From 1995 to 2012, he supervised ticket sales for USF Athletics, and in 2010, he began a written series on GoUSFBulls.com entitled Letters From Louk, where he looks back at the history of USF Athletics and also adds a different perspective to current events.
Since 2013, he has served USF at commencement ceremonies, reading the names of new graduates as they cross the stage to receive their diploma.
A native of Rochester, N.Y., Louk is a 1979 graduate of the University of Bridgeport where he earned a bachelor's degree in journalism. Louk and his wife Barbara reside in Lutz.
