Chris Roberts, the voice of the UCLA Bruins, has announced that he will retire following the 2014-2015 season.

After 23 seasons of proclaiming "Touchdown, UCLA!", four-time Golden Mike Award winner and Southern California Sports Broadcasters Association (SCSBA) Hall-of-Fame member Chris Roberts will be retiring from the UCLA broadcast booth following the upcoming football and basketball seasons.

In a press release on the official UCLA Athletics website, Roberts was quoted as saying:

"I cannot put into words what it has meant to be the ‘Voice of UCLA’ for all these years," said Roberts. "The Bruins have played a major role in my life for the past two-plus decades and hopefully my broadcasts have reflected this. Our athletes, coaches and administrators here in Westwood are first-class, and it has been an absolute delight providing the soundtrack for some of their greatest accomplishments. All athletes would love the chance to go out on top, and with both UCLA Football and Basketball poised to do great things in 2014-15, as a broadcaster, I am in the envious position of actually having that very opportunity."

The release also mentions:

Roberts, who will be honored throughout the 2014-15 season at both the Rose Bowl and Pauley Pavilion, will also receive season tickets for life to both football and men’s basketball games in recognition of his 23 years of excellence behind the mike at UCLA. Prior to that, however, Bruin fans will be able to listen to Roberts one final season beginning this fall as he calls all the action on AM570 Fox Sports Los Angeles from the Terry Donahue Pavilion at the Rose Bowl alongside Matt Stevens and Wayne Cook and courtside at Pauley Pavilion with Tracy Murray.

We congratulate Chris on his Hall of Fame career.

Go Bruins!
