MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Memphis International Airport announced University of Memphis head men's basketball coach Penny Hardaway as its new spokesperson.

Hardaway will be featured in MEM's public service announcements and marketing programs--meaning you'll probably see his face across the airport.

Penny replaces Tony Allen, the beloved Grizzly who served as spokesperson at MEM.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to be the next spokesperson for Memphis International Airport, said Hardaway. “This airport is part of the lifeblood of this city, as it grows, so do we. This is going to be a busy and exciting year for the airport and for Memphis and I can’t wait to get started.”
