The Chicago White Sox today announced Darrin Jackson will serve as the team’s radio color analyst on game broadcasts this season on WSCR 670 AM. Jackson will partner with play-by-play voice Ed Farmer.
The 2009 season will mark Jackson’s 10th with the organization in a broadcasting role – having served the previous nine seasons in the television booth alongside Ken “Hawk” Harrelson. Former White Sox pitcher and last season’s radio color analyst Steve Stone will partner with Harrelson on the television side this coming season.
“We are very pleased to have D.J. back in 2009, as it was our hope all along that he would come back in the radio booth.” said Brooks Boyer, White Sox chief marketing officer. “He has been a member of the White Sox family for a long time, and we truly value the insight and professionalism he brings to the broadcast booth.”
“This season, we are confident Ed Farmer and Darrin Jackson will partner to provide White Sox fans a solid broadcast experience,” said Mitch Rosen, WSCR 670 AM program director. “The broadcast will benefit from Ed and Darrin’s depth and first-hand baseball knowledge.”
All 2009 White Sox regular season games will be broadcast on WSCR 670 AM, the team’s flagship radio partner since 2006.
