Taylor Retiring From Scoreboard Show

Long-time High School Football Scoreboard Show host Ted Taylor is retiring from the program he has hosted for more than three decades.

Taylor said he has made the decision after a lot of thought.

“For the past 34 years, it has been my extreme privilege to host the Friday Night High School Football Scoreboard Show,” said Taylor. “Last year, it became more apparent that the effort that I had to put into it was going to be a whole lot more than I was really able to do, plus the travel back and forth, so I made an agreement with myself that this was going to be the final year. I just made the decision that I am going to totally retire as the host of the Friday Night Scoreboard Show.”

Taylor went on to say that he appreciates everyone’s support over 30-plus years of Friday nights.

“A friend of mine said when I told him the decision, ‘Man, what a wild ride you had!’ and it certainly has been,” said Taylor. “It has been a really, really terrific ride. We want to thank all of the coaches and reporters for all their cooperation and all of their reports throughout the years.”

Taylor is not completely retiring.

He will still be heard on “Crunchtime” Thursday nights during football season on WNEG and on the Indian Tailgate Show on Friday nights before home games.

Also, he will be calling play-by-play for home Indian baseball games again this year, starting today when Stephens County hosts Habersham Central.

Air time today for Indian baseball is 5:20 p.m. on WNEG and wnegradio.com.
