Cameron Close was brought on as the Voice of the Adirondack Thunder in August 2014, a title he maintains today, in addition to his role on the Thunder's Corporate Sales Team. Cameron is one of the Thunder's corporate salesman during the summer and travels with the team around the country bringing you the call on all 72 Adirondack Thunder games, home and away, during the season.
