Van Note stepping down as UK color analyst

Host Communications will be seeking a new color analyst for UK football broadcasts after Jeff Van Note announced he is stepping down.

The UK Football Network will have a different sound this season after former UK standout Jeff Van Note recently announced he is stepping down as color analyst for the team's radio broadcasts.

Host Communications CEO confirmed Van Note's decision in Saturday's edition of The Lexington Herald-Leader. He said no decision has been made on a new partner for current play-by-play man Tom Leach.

Van Note, who played for the Wildcats from 1966-69 and 18 years for the NFL's Atlanta Falcons, had been the color analyst on UK broadcasts for the past seven seasons. He will reportedly spend one more season on the Falcons' broadcast team before retiring.
