EDINBURGH RUGBY: DJ Boogie becomes new voice of Edinburgh Rugby
Forth One’s DJ Boogie has signed up for Edinburgh Rugby as the club’s stadium announcer at Murrayfield Stadium this season.
The voice of two of the station’s most popular shows, Boogie in the Morning and Boogie’s Big Saturday, will be heard cheering on the capital club and entertaining fans all season long.
Edinburgh Rugby managing director, David Davies, believes the announcement is another boost to the Murrayfield matchday experience ahead of the coming campaign.
He said: “We are delighted to have secured such a high profile personality for the role of stadium announcer.
“People who listen to Boogie’s radio shows, day-in-day-out, will know that we have acquired the services of an extremely talented presenter.
“His knowledge of music and popular culture, as well as his unquestionable skills of captivating an audience, will add a vibrancy and buzz to our matchday experience this season.”
Boogie will be making his Edinburgh Rugby debut in his home town of Hawick at the club’s final pre-season fixture against Newcastle Falcons at Mansfield Park (Friday 30 August, kick-off 7.45pm) and is keen to get started.
DJ Boogie said: “I’m extremely happy to be involved with Edinburgh Rugby for the coming season.
“The first game against Newcastle will be extra special for me as Mansfield Park is in my home town, so it will be great to be back there and support the team.
“These are exciting times for the club. I’m really pleased to be a part of it and am looking forward to getting the campaign underway.”
