At age 21, Trent Ling finally become the voice of his own school, perennial football power Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA. Under Hall-of-Fame coach, Frosty Westering, PLU played in eight national championship games, winning four of them. Trent enjoyed covering one of the elite programs in history during his final two years at the school.
“Frosty and the whole PLU broadcast experiences were too great for me then and now,” Trent recollects. “Monumental and life-grabbing were my years covering the Lutes. The whole thing is still largely inexpressible.”
Below, check out the audio link featuring one of Trent’s many KTAC-85 radio promos for yet another dominant PLU football season in 1986. At only one minute in length, it does give off some of the flavor of the times.
