Grizzlies Fan Advisory Board has First Meeting

There's a New Boss for the Memphis Grizzlies...and it's You!

Well, 40 of you anyway...

The Grizzlies new Fan Advisory Board is on the Job for its' first meeting tonight...

And Job One is a Big One..picking the NBA teams' new In-Arena voice.

Last month some 300 candidates tried out to be the Grizzlies new PA Announcer.

Some were good, some were bad, and only one will get the job.

The Fans' Board will make the decision.

Of those 300 or so who tried out, a few were asked back to perform in front of the new advisory board.

The board is made up of fans, who will have a say in this year's Grizzlies experience.

The new 40 person board  is made up of a cross section of ticket holders.

Not just season ticket holders or high prices skybox holders, but the cheap and single game holders are represented as well.

Grizzlies President Andy Dolich will hear their ideas and answer questions.

The board will sample new food tonight and give their opinions as well.

They'll meet again in about a month.

The Grizzlies open the Regular Season against the New York Knicks Nov. 1st.
