Munson has surgery for blood clots on his brain

POSTED: April 16, 2008 5:00 a.m.

ATHENS, Ga. — Family members disclosed Saturday that longtime Georgia radio announcer Larry Munson had successful surgery on Friday to remove blood clots on his brain.

Munson's recovery period is not known, but family members said he is expected to make a full recovery following the procedure to correct the subdural hematoma.

"I was really pleased to hear that Larry's surgery went well on Friday," said Georgia athletic director Damon Evans. "All of us in the Bulldog Nation wish him a full and speedy recovery."

Munson, 85, was admitted to St. Mary's Hospital in Athens on Thursday. Tests revealed the blood clots.
Due to health problems, Munson worked only home games and the game at Georgia Tech during the 2007 season, his 42nd calling Georgia games.

WSB's Neil Williamson told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution he saw Munson after Georgia's G-Day spring football game on Saturday and said Munson was pleased to hear about the strong play of running back Caleb King.

"He smiled real big when he saw that," said Williamson, who said Munson is expected to remain the primary play-by-play announcer in the 2008 season.

Munson's family provided the following address for anyone wishing to send cards or letters: Larry Munson, c/o UGA Athletic Association, P.O. Box 1472, Athens, GA 30603.
