The voice of the San Antonio Spurs is being recognized for his contribution to the organization and the community. Bill Schoening announced on social media that he will be inducted into the Texas Radio Hall of Fame. You may recognize his familiar cadence doing radio play-by-play for Spurs games. 

“Thanks to my fellow broadcasters for the nomination and election,” Schoenig said in a tweet. “42 years on the air in the Lone Star State; something can be said about longevity! My heart is full of gratitude.”

According to KENS 5, Shoening joined the Spurs in 2001. He called four of the Silver & Black’s five championships in 2003, 2005, 2007, and 2014. On top of his impressive career on the airwaves, Shoening is a four-time winner of the Associated Press Top Texas Play-by-Play Award. He also was named as The National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association’s 2014 Texas Sportscaster of the Year, according to the San Antonio Express News.

A native of Philadelphia. Schoening was the play-by-play commentator for Texas Longhorns football, baseball, and basketball for 12 years prior to coming to the Alamo City. Among his many talents and titles, he recently authored and published a book. He also enjoys singing and songwriting. 

You will hear Schoening once again this upcoming Spurs campaign as he will be calling every game during the 2022-23 NBA season. The Texas Radio Hall of Fame induction ceremony is scheduled for November 5 at the Texas Museum of Broadcasting and Communications in Kilgore. There are 20 people total who will be honored at the ceremony.
