Len Kasper (born January 21, 1971 in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan) is a play-by-play announcer for the Chicago Cubs (2005–present) on WGN-TV, WPWR-TV, WLS-TV and Comcast SportsNet Chicago. He works alongside color commentator Jim Deshaies.
He and his wife Pam have one son, named Leo.
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 in January 2009, Kasper became 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.
