Will be missed. Always did a professional job - obviously pro-Hearts but not OTT or unpleasant about it.

Hardly retiring 😂 just stepping down from being the stadium announcer, Which I couldn’t really care less who picks the music and announces the subs.

Scott is the complete professional. Can't underestimate his ability to raise the atmosphere. Will be missed on the day.

Iconic voice, and has been for all the years I've been going to matches at Tynecastle. 

 

It won't quite be the same, and it'll take some time for the new guy to "sound right", but I'm sure they will eventually.

The voice of Heart of Midlothian, great personality, make some noise 

Who would want to take over the microphone from him it will be like taking to the stage after Frank Sinnatra

Fantastic voice of Tynecastle and will be a very hard act to follow. Best in the business. Seen him quite a few times in hospitality and other events and he doesn't 'miss' when interviewing anyone especially the players. Sad to see him leave his job as presenter on match days but delighted he's staying on in the Gorgie suite hospitality.

Ok I got it I think. Because he wanted to make the best of Murrayfied if it happened?

Laurie Dunsire would be great but does a brilliant job on Hearts World so would be a shame to lose him off that.

Who did it before Scott?  🤷‍♂️

Mark Mckenzie I think it was. Such a long time ago now

He's been good, but it's time for a change. We need to appeal to a younger audience, something we've not been good at for a long time. Scott moving is the right thing, hopefully his replacement is as good for Hearts as Scott was.

Fair enough. He can't please all the people.

Hopefully a new catch phrase. ‘Make some noise’ a bit played out when you’ve heard it so much. Good guy though, comes over well in interviews and a good voice for a stadium announcer.

Does that mean the tannoy's going to be even louder ? 

That feckin music is unbearably loud. 

No wonder the stadiums empty until about three minutes to kick off. 

Impossible to hold a conversation over that noise. 

Wouldn't be so bad if they gave us a medley of Hearts songs prior to Kick off. 

It's a football stadium not a rave venue.

Well whoever it is needs to at least be able to do the basics and play the hearts song before the teams comes out. Mark Martin? Managed not to do that at the Livi Cup game!!

If the stadium is empty till three minutes before kick off then surely it's time for a change?

Hopefully the next guy plays better tunes tbh.

😀 I like his tunes. A decent mix of alternative stuff rather than the pop pap you get elsewhere

It's easy to take him for granted until you go to an away ground and hear some of the rank amateurs elsewhere

I don’t know if anybody knows this but it was his idea for the pyrotechnics when Phil Anderton was at Hearts 👍🏻

Very sorry to hear this. On my first visit hearing him say, "THIS IS TYNECASTLE" gave me chills.

Gutted to hear this. Scott Wilson is without doubt the best stadium announcer in the country and he adds a bit of comedy to it too. I go to a lot of away games and most MCs play pop chart music which is mainly garbage (IMO), whereas Scott mixes it up with older songs. If you go to an OF ground, particularly Celtic Park, the music is almost completely dominated by their own songs to the point where it seems like propaganda. Glad he's still doing the Gorgie Suite though.

I noticed that too - as well as the fact that the music was really poor. I generally like Scott's choice of music and my fear is that whoever comes next won't have the same fine taste. All in all Scott is excellent at his job IMO and will be a very hard act to follow.

Every other announcer in the country sounds exactly the same to me, sitting in the old main stand listening to Scott is imprinted in my brain and will always associate him with some fantastic memories. 
 

Boogie in the morning to take his place?
