mike allegre 2011 72Mike Allegre

Mike began his sportscasting career while at Central Washington University (1980-83) following an honorable discharge from the Air Force. He has since called hundreds of high school and college ball games and has been honored for his work by the Associated Press and Salem Sports & Breakfast Club.

Mike initiated radio coverage of Willamette University Bearcat men's basketball games in 1991. The "Voice of the Bearcats," Mike's also been calling WU basketball since 2000. An Oregon 3A Girl's Basketball Tournament announcer (1985-94), Mike was the lead announcer for the first four NAIA Women's Division II basketball tourneys.

"I've been doing play-by-play since I was a kid--calling games talking into pretend-microphones. I love broadcasting, especially out of town games so that listeners can 'watch it' with me. God's given me the gift of gab, so I'm doing as He asks and using my gift."

Mike works for the Oregon Department of Veterans' Affairs as a public affairs specialist. Major Allegre retired from the Oregon Air National Guard in January 2007 after proudly serving 21 years as a public affairs officer (and 4 years in the US Air Force). Between them, he and wife Suzanne have five children, one granddaughter, and one grandson.

Mark has been a sportscaster since 1986, announcing games on radio, television, and the Internet for sports at all levels. His on-air experience includes a total of 15 Oregon High School Athletic Championship contests. Mark has been honored for his broadcasting work by the Associated Press, the Salem (Oregon) Sports and Breakfast Club, and the Oregon Athletic Coaches Association. In the summer of 2008, he became the radio voice of the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes baseball team, a minor league affiliate of the San Francisco Giants.

In 2010, Mark was named as the football broadcaster for Division-II Western Oregon University in Monmouth, OR, where he will share the booth with his father and long-time coach, Jerry Gilman.

A long time English and Public Speaking teacher at the high school level, Mark spent nearly a decade as a full time broadcaster. He won numerous awards as a radio news reporter in the Salem metropolitan area before becoming a full time educator in 1990. However, Mark still enjoys staying active as a sports announcer.

"My sports announcing experience goes all the way back to my high school days, so I can hardly envision my life without it," says Mark. "It’s both a pleasure and an honor to be able to describe the action of an exciting sports event with listeners. Full Access Sports is a great way to share with even more people who love sports.”

Mark and his wife, Theresa, and their three daughters are long time members of the Salem community, and enjoy a long list of sports as participants and spectators. Mark also is an enthusiastic, but part time hiker who loves to explore the mountains of Oregon.
