UCONN and Ann’s Place Fans Come Together!
Ann’s Place is honored to announce we will be holding a UCONN themed breakfast fundraiser featuring Danbury native, and SNY announcer, Eric Frede, and UCONN alum Meghan Culmo. The May 14th breakfast will be held at The Amber Room Colonnade in Danbury and monies raised will directly support the free cancer support services Ann’s Place provides the local community.
Eric Frede SNY’s play-by-play announcer for the 11-time national champion UConn women's basketball program. A two-time New England Emmy Award-winner and recipient of the Edward R. Murrow Award for sports reporting, he has over 25 years of experience broadcasting collegiate and professional sports. Through the years he's provided play by play for women's and men’s college basketball - including ESPN’s coverage of the NCAA women’s tournament the last two years - plus games in the ACC, Big East, SEC, Big Ten, Pac12 and more. He provided play by play for Turner's “Teamcast” coverage of the UConn men’s semifinal win in Dallas at the 2014 Final Four. He also calls football, baseball, softball, hockey, soccer and lacrosse for a variety of conferences and networks.
Also joining us is UConn alum Meghan Culmo. Meghan has been a color analyst on radio and television for nearly two decades. She has appeared on Connecticut Public Television, ESPN, MSG and Lifetime Television, among others. While at CPTV she hosted "The Geno Auriemma Show” for nearly 15 years.
