IMSA Radio is adding two familiar names to its roster in 2019.
Jamie Howe and Brian Till will join the full-time team of Shea Adam, Jeremy Shaw and John Hindhaugh in covering IMSA’s 50th anniversary season. Jonny Palmer and Joe Bradley also will be part of the Rolex 24 At Daytona coverage.
Howe started her broadcast career as a pit reporter for the ALMS Radioweb service, the precursor to IMSA Radio. Since then she has been an integral part of the IMSA TV pit team, as well as serving as an in-vision anchor to some of the biggest races on the calendar. Howe has also covered the 24 Hours of Le Mans and NHRA.
Till is a versatile motorsport broadcaster whose resume includes IndyCar, the Gander Outdoor Truck Series and ALMS. Till has served as a pit lane report and a booth announcer/analyst who has been a key part of the IMSA TV talent for many years, spanning several networks.
IMSA’s 50th anniversary season will see several changes on the broadcast front. NBC Sports enters its first year covering the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship in the U.S. with the broadcast team of Leigh Diffey, Calvin Fish and AJ Allmendinger, while international streaming and TV will feature IMSA Radio audio. Sirius XM will continue to broadcast the live IMSA Radio coverage of every IWSC race.
IMSA Radio audio will continue to complement the global live streaming IMSA TV feed for all of the development series races, the Michelin Pilot Challenge race and qualifying for WeatherTech Championship.
“I’m delighted that Jamie and Brian are joining the IMSA Radio team,” said RSL Managing Director and IMSA Radio Project Director Eve Hewitt. “They are both part of the endurance racing community. For Jamie it really is like coming home. For several years we have talked about Jamie coming to Le Mans with us, but it’s never quite worked out. She knows radio, she knows our style and what to expect and she will fit right in.
“Of course Brian Till needs no introduction. His work speaks for itself, but being a part of our team is more than that. Our presenter John Hindhaugh worked with Brian in the TV booth a few years ago and was very complimentary about how Brian helped him understand TV. Brian is a total professional and he is a great addition to the team.”
