Len Kasper (born January 21, 1971 in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan) is a play-by-play announcer for the Chicago Cubs (2005–present)[1][2] on WGN-TV, WCIU-TV, and Comcast SportsNet. He works alongside color commentator Jim Deshaies.

Personal life[edit]

Kasper grew up in Michigan. His broadcasting influence was the Detroit Tigers' legendary broadcaster, Ernie Harwell.

He graduated from Shepherd High School. He graduated summa cum laude from Marquette University with a degree in public relations in 1993.

He and his wife Pam have one son, named Leo.[1]

Career[edit]

His previous stints were with the Milwaukee Brewers (1999–2001) and Florida Marlins (2002–2004). Before then, he worked for WTMJ-AM (620) in Milwaukee as the host of the station's daily sports show, hosted pregame and halftime shows for the Green Bay Packers, and was a co-host on a hot stove league show on the Brewers' radio network. He was actually the Cubs' third choice for an announcer behind Dave O'Brien and Matt Vasgersian. Beginning January 2009, Kasper has also become a disc jockey. He hosts a weekly show for one hour, Wednesday evenings at 8:00 on WXRT, an adult album alternative station, where he has often made appearances to discuss Chicago Cubs baseball.[3]

Quotes[edit]

  • "We're very high right now, and I'm not referring to our Woodstock conversation." (talking about the broadcasting booth at the Washington Nationals' stadium)- Cubs @ Nationals, Nationals Park, April 27, 2008
  • "Swing and a miss! A no hitter! Carlos Zambrano has no hit the Houston Astros! Ohhh Baby!" (Carlos Zambrano's no hitter)-Cubs @ Astros, Miller Park, September 14, 2008
  • "It wiiiiilll go!" - Often said while announcing a Cubs home run.
  • "The pitch to Aramis, he hits a drive, deep left center! Cubs win! They win it! Ramirez! 2-run shot! Ohhh baby! Can you believe it? Unbelievable!"-Brewers @ Cubs, Wrigley Field, June 29, 2007
