GUEST SPEAKER ~ Wayne Larrivee is the Voice of the Packers and has been described as the hardest working man in announcing. Before coming to Green Bay, Larrivee worked in Chicago as the voice of the Chicago Bears for 14 seasons. Larrivee has also called games for the Chicago Cubs, the Chicago Bulls, Kansas City Chiefs, Iowa Hawkeyes football, and Missouri Tigers baseball.
Larrivee grew up in the small town of Lee, Massachusetts as a faithful Packers fan. He attended Emerson College in Boston where he began perfecting his play-by-play craft from high above the court at the Boston Garden. He graduated from Emerson in 1977 and proceeded to call games for the Kansas City Chiefs on KCMO radio from 1978-1984. Larrivee moved on to broadcast Chicago Bears games in 1985 and stayed with the team until after the 1998 season.
Larrivee became the radio voice of the Green Bay Packers at the start of the 1998-1999 season. His sophisticated style of announcing includes a mastery of the English language and plenty of clever catch phrases. Larrivee is best known for “The Dagger,” where he proclaims a Packers victory at the clinching point of every close game. Larrivee was behind the mic for both the Bears Super Bowl XX and the Packers Super Bowl XLV victories. With over 39 years of broadcasting experience, Wayne Larrivee continues to cement his legacy in the world of sports announcing.
