Adrienne Roberson’s cool sports job: Bowie Baysox PA announcer

Adrienne Roberson started out as a theater major at the University of Tennessee but quickly switched to broadcasting when she realized she could combine two passions: sports and speaking into a microphone. She loved listening to Casey Kasem and Dick Clark on the radio, and she grew up in Philadelphia, going to Eagles and Phillies games with her dad.
