Written by Maury Brown   
Tuesday, 08 January 2013 01:36

Bobby Valentine, who lasted just the 2012 season managing with the Boston Red Sox, has found a a new home, this time on radio.

The former manager will be coming to NBC Sports Radio doing call-ins weekly to affiliated stations and NBC Sports Radio talk hosts. In addition, Valentine will become a part-time co-host of a soon-to-be-announced daily Monday-Friday talk show that will debut in April, 2013, as the network expands its programming lineup.

"I can't wait to get started on NBC Sports Radio,” said Valentine of the new gig. “I'm looking forward to talking to our affiliates and network shows, and to being a major contributor to the network. I always state my honest opinion and I can't wait to share it with NBC Sports Radio listeners."

NBC Sports Radio launched its new, full weekend lineup of programming this past Saturday and Sunday. Launched last September, the joint venture of NBC Sports Group and Dial Global launched NBC Sports Radio. The fledgling effort offers sports talk programming to radio stations nationwide and distributed by Dial Global.

Jaime Jarrín To Return for 54th Season of Spanish-Language Broadcasting with Dodgers PDF Print E-mail
User Rating: / 90

First Vin Scully, now this good news…

Hall of Fame broadcaster Jaime Jarrín will return to the broadcast booth for his 54th season in 2012, he announced during today’s broadcast on Univision Radio KTNQ 1020. He will continue calling all 162 Dodger games at home and on the road for KTNQ 1020.

“The Dodgers have invited me back for another season, so you will have to be by my side again,” Jarrín joked with analyst Fernando Valenzuela on air during the second inning. “I love what I do. It’s something I love and it brings me great joy to work alongside you and Pepe Yñiguez. I’m pleased to serve the Spanish-language community and really share baseball with them – such a beautiful and pristine sport.”

Jarrín has been rated as the best Spanish-language broadcaster of all-time and was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1998.

A native of Ecuador, Jarrín has become one of the most recognizable voices in the world to Spanish-speaking listeners. He joined the broadcast team in 1959, one year after the team moved to Los Angeles and three years before the team moved into Dodger Stadium. In 1973, he became the club’s No. 1 Spanish-language broadcaster and has been honored countless times ever since.

From 1962 to 1984, Jarrín called close to 4,000 consecutive games spanning 22 seasons, never missing a game. The streak was broken only when he took charge of all Spanish-language radio coverage and production for the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles.

Jarrín calls every game alongside Yñiguez and the duo is joined at home games and on West Coast road games by the legendary left-hander, Valenzuela. Jarrín became a household name across the country in 1981 when he served as the interpreter for Valenzuela when the southpaw set off the phenomenon known as “Fernandomania.”

The Dodgers, with Jarrín and Vin Scully, are one of only two Major League teams to feature a pair of Hall of Fame announcers, joining Florida (Felo Ramirez and Dave Van Horne).

OriolesThe Orioles have announced that they have signed a multi-year deal with 1090 AM WBAL Radio to become the club’s radio flagship station. The partnership with WBAL Radio marks the 42nd year since Baltimore returned to the major leagues 57 years ago that the station has originated Orioles broadcasts. Orioles games were most recently heard on WBAL Radio in 2006. The station first broadcast O’s games in 1957, the club’s fourth season.

“We are excited to reestablish our relationship with WBAL Radio,” said Orioles Director of Communications Greg Bader. “Both the Orioles and WBAL Radio have a long and proud tradition in this region and we are pleased to once again call them our flagship as we look forward to an exciting 2011 season.”

WBAL Radio will broadcast all 162 Orioles 2011 regular season games, as well as a selection of spring training contests. Joe Angel and Fred Manfra will return to call the action on the Orioles Radio Network.

Legendary Cubs Player and Broadcaster Ron Santo Dead at 70 PDF Print E-mail

Ron Santo

Ron Santo, who played the hot corner for the Cubs and then became a legendary on the radio in Chicago, has died at the age of 70. WGN released a statement saying that he died from complications from bladder cancer.

"My siblings and I first knew Ron Santo as fans, listening to him in the broadcast booth," said Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts said in a statement. "We knew him for his passion, his loyalty, his great personal courage and his tremendous sense of humor. It was our great honor to get to know him personally in our first year as owners.

"Ronnie will forever be the heart and soul of Cubs fans."

“I am truly saddened by the loss of my dear friend Ron Santo, who represented all the goodwill of baseball and the Chicago Cubs franchise" said Baseball Commissioner Selig. "He was a magnificent, consistent ballplayer – a nine-time All-Star, a great power hitter and a five-time Gold Glove winner.  Ron’s playing and broadcasting careers shared a common thread: in both capacities, he was a staple of the Cubs’ experience every single day.  I enjoyed our many phone conversations and all the times when I visited him in the booth at Wrigley Field and during Spring Training.

“Ron, who overcame so much in his life, was always there for me during challenging times.  I will forever cherish his friendship and marvel at his remarkable work in the fight against diabetes.  On behalf of all of Major League Baseball, I send my deepest condolences to his wife Vicki, their four children, their grandchildren, and to all the fans of the Cubs.”

Santo played from 1960-73 with the Cubs closing his career out in Chicago, albeit with the White Sox. He then transitioned to the broadcast booth in 1990 where became the Cubs biggest cheerleader.

He was a great player, maybe one of the best to not be in Cooperstown. Over 15 seasons he had a career 277 average with 342 home runs and 1,331 RBIs.

And yet, the Hall of Fame eluded Santo. Over the course of 19 different appearances on the ballot, he failed to gain the needed votes.

Seattle Mariners Broadcaster Dave Niehaus Dead at 75 PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 10 November 2010 21:55

Dave NiehausThe baseball broadcasting world has lost another Hall of Famer.

Dave Niehaus, the voice of the Seattle Mariners since the team's inception in 1977, passed away Wednesday at his home in Bellevue, Wash. Niehaus, 75, suffered a heart attack, according to his family.

"This is truly devastating news," said Seattle Mariners chairman Howard Lincoln.

Chuck Armstrong, Seattle Mariners president and COO, added, "Speaking for ourselves, our ownership and the entire Mariners family, our thoughts and prayers are with Marilyn, their children, Andy, Matt and Greta, and the grandchildren.

"Dave has truly been the heart and soul of this franchise since its inception in 1977. Since calling Diego Segui's first-pitch strike on Opening Night in the Kingdome some 34 years ago, Dave's voice has been the constant with the franchise. He truly was the fans connection to every game; to wins and losses; to great plays and heartbreaking defeats; to Hall of Famers and journeymen. With the exception of his love for his wife, Marilyn, his children and grandchildren, there was nothing Dave liked more than the game of baseball and to be at the ballpark. He was the voice of spring and summer in the Northwest.

"He was the fans' choice to throw out the first pitch in Safeco Field history, and no one has had a greater impact on our team's connection to fans throughout the Northwest. One of the best days we've ever spent was in Cooperstown in 2008, as Dave took his place in the Baseball Hall of Fame."

Niehaus entered the Baseball Hall of Fame as the 2008 recipient of the Ford C. Frick Award. His signature homerun calls were, "That ball will fly, fly away!" and the always popular, "It's grand salami time!"

Named one the “Top 10 Most Influential People of the Century” by the Seattle Times, Niehaus threw out the ceremonial first pitch for the inaugural game at Safeco Field on July 15, 1999. Born and raised in Princeton, Ind., and a graduate of Indiana University, Niehaus previously worked for the Armed Forces radio and TV service, calling the action for Dodgers games before moving to New York to handle Yankees baseball, along with basketball and hockey. Following his departure from the Armed Forces Network, Niehaus returned to Los Angeles to broadcast the Dodgers, Rams and Lakers. From 1969-76, he teamed with Dick Enberg and Don Drysdale on California Angels broadcasts, also broadcasting UCLA football and basketball from 1973-76, before moving to Seattle for the inaugural 1977 campaign.

Neihaus is survived by his wife Marilyn, three children and six grandchildren.

According to the Mariners, the Niehaus family has requested privacy at this very difficult time.
