    I never had a doubt that Wayne would one day be a broadcaster for the Packers. We grew up together as friends in Lee, Ma and as a young boy, he had aspirations of working for the Packers and talked about it all the time. He even had a small mock-up of Lambeau Field in his bedroom. I am so proud of all his accomplishments as a professional and a friend. Congratulations Wayne on this honor. It is well deserved and a culmination of all your aspirations as a young man.
