The Chicago White Sox have the best radio/TV combo in Major League Baseball.
The Chicago White Sox and ESPN 1000 made a big hire by bringing in Len Kasper to be their new radio announcer. He leaves the Chicago Cubs TV job after 16 years and comes over to the White Sox radio booth. He will be the long-term replacement for Ed Farmer who passed away earlier this year. Darrin Jackson will be the color commentator alongside Kasper in the radio booth. This will be the first year that ESPN 1000 will be the radio home of Chicago White Sox baseball.
All you need to do to learn a bit about Kasper’s play by play style is talk to most fans of the Chicago Cubs. He is well-liked by just about everyone who knows him or has been a baseball fan in this city for a long time. He is one of the very best in the business and the White Sox are lucky to have him.
To go with an A+ radio broadcast, the White Sox have an A+ television team as well. Jason Benetti is one of the best upcoming broadcasters in the league who gives this team a vibrant personality on television. He is wildly entertaining when calling games and he clearly loves the game along with the team. He is the perfect man for this job.
Right next to Benetti, is Steve Stone. He is one of the smartest baseball people in the world and he brings that knowledge to our living rooms every night in the summer. His color commentary is incredible as he knows the ins and outs of the game as well as anyone. Stone will often describe what he thinks a pitcher will do or what he thinks a hitter is going for and will be right a good amount of the time.
Chicago is a great sports town. They are there with New York, Boston, and Philadelphia battling for the title of best sports city in the United States. Every team deserves the best coverage and the White Sox are getting that. This radio and television combination is the best in the MLB and fans should be proud of it. It also shows that the White Sox are committed to being a good organization both on and off the field. An elite team needs elite broadcasting and the White Sox will have that in 2021 and beyond.
