TAMPA, FL -

The Evansville Otters are mourning the sudden loss of former broadcaster Mike Radomski, who died in the early morning hours on Oct. 12 in an automobile accident in Florida. He was 29.

"Mike was a beloved member of the Otters community,” Otters owner Bill Bussing said. “He came here as an employee, but left as a dear friend to many of us.” 

Radomski was an important part of the Otters’ franchise during his time in Evansville as an Account Executive and Director of Media Relations.

“It's difficult to walk into the press box at Bosse Field and not think about his legacy," Bussing added.

From 2010-15, he broadcasted games on WUEV 91.5 FM alongside Bill McKeon while also assisting in sales. He hosted Otters Insider, a weekly talk show that featured interviews with manager Andy McCauley and players.

“Mike was a great ambassador for the league for six seasons,” Deputy Commissioner Steve Tahsler said. “We are saddened by the news and we send our thoughts to his family.”

Radomski is the longest tenured radio broadcaster in franchise history, calling over 550 games for the Otters. He successfully guided the team through a website overhaul at evansvilleotters.com and revived the team’s social media platforms.

In 2014, he became the Director of Media Relations at the University of Evansville where he oversaw media aspects for women’s basketball, baseball, men’s and women’s soccer for the Purple Aces.

After a year at UE, Radomski took a job at the University of South Florida in the same capacity, overseeing media aspects for men’s basketball, cross country and track.

He was born and raised in New Jersey and earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism from Quinnipiac University in 2010.

He leaves behind his wife, Christina, who he married in June 2016. 

Never short of enthusiasm, he frequently used #RockThePlanet with social media posts. The Otters family sends our thoughts and prayers to Christina and the entire Radomski family.
