“From the Lenoir-Rhyne Bears to the Catawba Indians,” Mike Hogewood said with a laugh. Hogewood sported an official Catawba emblem on his blazer to prove it. Hogewood is a familiar face and owns a familiar voice. He’s recognizable as a longtime TV sports anchor and for his decades of work with ACC football and basketball, and racing. Hogewood served last Saturday as the moderator of a panel discussion to honor the contributions made by Roone Arledge and Stuart Scott during NSSA Legacy Night.

Hogewood taught video and speech as a part-time professor in Lenoir-Rhyne’s mass communications department the last three years, but he plans to start at Catawba in August.

“L-R people tell me I’m coming over to the other side,” Hogewood said.

Hogewood graduated from Greensboro’s Grimsley High School.

He was a tennis player at Lenoir-Rhyne and graduated from the Hickory school in 1976. “I was broadcasting Lenoir-Rhyne games while I was still a student and Bob Rathbun was a student at Catawba broadcasting their games,” Hogewood recalled. Both broadcasters wound up working as colleagues at FOX.

You never know where the broadcasting road might lead. “One thing I tell students is they need to have a Plan B and a Plan C,” Hogewood said. “Plan A never works out.” Hogewood’s broadcasting mentor was the late Jim Thacker, longtime WBTV sports director.
