If there is one thing that stands out about Colin Lacy, it is his passion for sports and broadcasting. For the past eight years, he has been a broadcaster and producer for the Georgia Southern Sports Network. Lacy has had his hand in every aspect of the broadcasting business from on-air play-by-play to creating billboards and sales.
Since 2013, Lacy has served as the radio play-by-play voice for Georgia Southern Women's Basketball covering all home and away games for the Eagles. On air, he has hosted the pre-game, halftime and post-game coverage for Georgia Southern Football and Baseball since 2014. Beginning in 2019, Lacy began reporting from the dugout for the Georgia Southern Sports Network's radio coverage of Eagle Baseball. In addition to the on-air work, he is also responsible for all the day-to-day operations of the Georgia Southern Sports Network including creating imaging for broadcasts, engineering and producing over 150 live events a year across the network.
In addition to the radio responsibilities for Georgia Southern, Lacy also works for Georgia Southern Sports Properties, a division of Learfield | IMG College. Since Georgia Southern became a Nelligan Sports Marketing property (who would later be purchased by Learfield) in 2013, he assisted the sales team that took corporate partnership income from $500k to $1.6 million in just shy of two years. Lacy also holds the position of executive producer/host for Blue White Weekly, the weekly television show showcasing Georgia Southern Athletics on Fox Sports Southeast.
During the summer of 2013, Lacy began work with the Sunbelt Summer Collegiate Baseball League in Atlanta from the summer of 2013 until the end of the 2018 season. In his time with the Sunbelt League, Lacy created the Sunbelt League Radio Network, and in three years, took the league from broadcasting one game per week to broadcasting every regular and post season game. As the Director of Broadcasting/Communications for the Sunbelt League, he oversaw a staff of 15-20 employees and interns. Midway through the 2018 season, Lacy was promoted from the Director of Broadcasting/Communications to the President of the Sunbelt League and oversaw all day-to-day operations of the league office.
