Re: End of an era: Voice of the 49ers Dan Smith let go
Dan called the game against Pepperdine a few weeks ago so before making any accusations that we need to know more about this. Hopefully either Sean or Dan will speak out about this.
If true that Dan was let go that I will be sending a message to both Andy and Sean about this!
Long time Long Beach State public address announcer and alum Dan Smith was let go by the new kid in town, Senior Associate Athletic Director/External Relations Sean Ferrera this past Monday.
Dan was been involved with LBSU Athletics for more than 35 years. He was a member of the LBSU marching band, the Big Brown Music Machine. He also worked in the sports information department. Dan's resume as PA announcer probably is more than three pages long as he has announced all 49er athletic home events including football. Dan has been the voice of the Big West Conference basketball tournaments, NCAA West Regional First & Second Rounds (Long Beach Arena), NCAA West Regional (Honda Center), Wooden Classic and many more events.
It's pretty said that when we get new folks hired into the athletic department and university administration and try to change tradition such our nickname 49ers and mascot Prospector Pete or try to bring in their ideas so they can put it on their resume and then leave for higher pastures.
Sean Ferrera is a coward along with the two Santa Barbara idiots Jane Conoley and Andy Fee. LBSU alumni stop your donations until these three clowns leave.
