Northville, MI — Northville Downs track announcer Ken Terpenning has invited Hall of Fame announcer Roger ‘The Voice’ Huston to join him and Northville backup announcer Tony Mosesso in the booth on Friday (May 27), to share the announcing duties for the evening.
“In an effort to bring increased awareness and to further promote Michigan harness racing at Northville Downs, I felt having Roger accompany us in the booth for the evening was a great fit for what we are trying to achieve here,” said Terpenning. “I have worked very hard at bringing excitement to the race calls here and who better to add to that than Roger, himself. Working with ‘The Voice’ is something I have always wanted to do, at least once in my career, and I think it would be a terrific opportunity to learn more tricks of the trade and for Tony, a brand new announcer who is just learning the trade, a golden opportunity as well.”
Huston, 79 years young, has been on a tour of racetracks recently, including a trip to Alberta’s Century Downs. He has announced more than 181,000 races at 152 different tracks in his career.
