Eisenstein returns for his fifth season as the "Voice of the Bobcats."

Eisenstein's career has included stints with five universities, a minor league baseball team and an NBA organization.

His big break came when he spent two years as the studio host for the New Orleans Hornets when they were in Oklahoma City. He handled pregame, halftime, postgame, TV shows and talk shows. During his time in the NBA, he spent two summers calling minor league baseball for the Eugene Emeralds, the Short Season Class A affiliate of the San Diego Padres, and as a talk show host in Oklahoma City.

He left the Hornets to become the "Voice of the Idaho State Bengals" for the 2007 season.

Eisenstein also has handled the pre, half and postgame duties for Southern Illinois and Illinois State, play-by-play for baseball at both schools, and women's basketball at SIU. He's called Illinois Wesleyan football and baseball, and high school games in southern and central Illinois.

Eisenstein grew up in Bolingbrook, IL. He's a 2002 graduate of Southern Illinois University.
