Evans also had been the radio voice of the Bowling Green State University hockey team on the campus radio station, WBGU-FM, 88.1. All of the long hours and hard work have finally paid off for Evans, a 27-year-old graduate of Eastwood High School and BGSU. He has landed a full-time position as afternoon sports anchor at another Cumulus Media station - WTKA-AM, 1050, in Ann Arbor. He starts June 4...
