Two former MWL broadcasters land big-league gigs

Two broadcasters who plied their trade in the Midwest League the past few years have gotten called up to the big leagues.

Wayne Randazzo, play-by-play broadcaster for the Kane County Cougars from 2012 to 2014, was hired by WOR-AM as a pregame and postgame host for New York Mets games. He occasionally filled that same role for the Chicago White Sox, served as a sports anchor and talk show host for WSCR-AM and WBBM-AM, and did some play-by-play work for the WNBA’s Chicago Sky, ESPN, and Sports USA (college football).

Randazzo’s first job in Minor League Baseball was as a broadcaster for the Mobile BayBears from 2008 to 2011.

Also making the jump to the major leagues is Jared Sandler, who was a Great Lakes Loons broadcaster and ESPN 100.9 FM sports talk show host in 2012 and 2013. He landed a major-market radio job at ESPN Radio in Dallas in 2014, and starting this year, he will be a pregame and postgame host for Texas Rangers games.

Both Randazzo and Sandler also will serve as fill-in play-by-play broadcasters for their new teams. Good luck to both of them!
