By Jack Eaton
Jack Eaton is known to thousands of University of Memphis fans as the "Voice of the Tigers." He served as sports director and anchor for WMC-TV Channel 5 and WMC-AM 790 from 1956 until his retirement in 1991.

In his role as Voice of the Memphis Tigers, Eaton broadcast Tigers basketball from 1959 to 1987 and football from 1964 to 1986. During his time as "Voice of the Tigers," Eaton's famous exclamations of "Great Scott" and "Great Caesar's Ghost" became synonymous with his play-by-play of Tiger sports.

In addition to college sports, Eaton did radio play-by-play in the 1950's and 1960's for local high school football games and the Memphis Chicks baseball in 1957. In 1959, Eaton became the first Memphis television sportscaster to announce professional wrestling.

During his career in the Bluff City, Jack Eaton became the area's most noted and impactful television and radio sports personality.
