Collmus Lands Job As Churchill Downs, Gulfstream Park Announcer
Larry Collmus has landed the job of track announcer at Churchill Downs. He replaces Mark Johnson, who has "finished a five-year run at Churchill" and whose departure "was not his choice." Collmus, who has been the announcer at Monmouth Park for 20 years, will also call races at Gulfstream Park. Monmouth "will need to replace him," and with Churchill and Gulfstream's meets overlapping, "someone will need to fill in in Florida when Collmus ships to Louisville" (LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL, 2/14).
