Cubs Sign Play-By-Play Man Kasper To Contract Extension


The Chicago Cubs announced Thursday that they have extended the contract of play-by-play broadcaster Len Kasper through the 2011 season.

From NBC Chicago's story:

"I am thrilled to extend what has been, for me, an incredible relationship with the Cubs, WGN, Comcast SportsNet and my partner Bob Brenly," said Kasper. "It is an honor to announce games with Bob for the greatest fans in sports and I look forward to calling many exciting Cubs' seasons to come. My family and I are very proud to call Chicago our home and there's no better place to broadcast big league baseball than Wrigley Field."

Kasper, 37, in 2009 enters his fifth season doing play-by-play for Cubs television broadcasts. He joined the Cubs in 2005 after three seasons of television play-by-play for the Florida Marlins from 2002-04.
