Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox fans do not like each other. Some may even say it’s an outright hatred for each other.
In a rare move, Cubs television play-by-play announcer Len Kasper has traded sides. He’s the new White Sox radio play-by-play announcer.
“Broadcasting baseball on the radio has always been my dream,” Kasper said Friday. “I am appreciative that the Cubs were willing to let me leave that organization on such great terms. I have always been fascinated by the creative freedom radio allows its broadcasters, and baseball is such a great game when presented on the radio. I have been dreaming about doing this since I was 12 years old.”
This is the latest move to the Cubs this off-season. The team lost Theo Epstein — who was the mastermind behind the 2016 World Series team — stepped down.
Recently, Jed Hoyer — who took over as the President of Baseball Operations — elected to let beloved Kyle Schwarber. He was non-tendered and is a free agent.
Kasper will partner with Darrin Jackson on ESPN 1000. In addition, he’s expected to work “20 to 25 games on TV” for NBC Chicago.
The Athletic is reporting that Chris Myers — current Fox Sports broadcaster — is the front runner to replace Kasper.
Kasper replaced Ed Farmer — who was the White Sox longtime play by play announcer — passed away earlier this year. Andy Masur filled in for Farmer during this past 60-game MLB shortened season.
