Len Kasper will continue to be the “Voice of the Cubs” – at least for 3 more years. The Cubs announced that Kasper will remain as the play-by-play broadcaster on TV through the 2011 MLB season.
Kasper is thrilled and so are Cubs fans. After stints doing TV play-by-play for the Milwaukee Brewers (1999-2001) and the Florida Marlins (2002-2004), Kasper joined the Cubs television ranks for the start of the 2005 MLB season. Four years later, the relationship is still going strong. Kasper and color-man Bob Brenly have a very unique and fun relationship on and off the field. With Brenly inked through 2012, the Cubs will have a formidable broadcast duo for years to come.
Kudos to the Cubs for rewarding the solid work by Kasper, and kudos to Kasper for developing a love for the Cubs and the city of Chicago.
