PAWTUCKET RED SOX minor league baseball broadcaster JEFF LEVERING is joining the major league MILWAUKEE BREWERS radio crew as play-by-play broadcaster for select road games on JOURNAL News-Talk WTMJ-A/MILWAUKEE and the BREWERS RADIO NETWORK and contributor to the club's website, social media, and new media efforts. LEVERING has been the voice of the PAWSOX for the last two years; he will call three innings of play-by-play on select road games when Hall of Fame announcer BOB UECKER takes days off, and will generate content for various media platforms on other days.
BREWERS COO RICK SCHLESINGER said, “JEFF will be a great addition to the organization, and this is an opportunity for him to contribute both in the radio booth and in our new media efforts. By creating this role, we have a consistent voice filling in when BOB elects to stay home on occasional road trips, and we add resources to our expanding social media outreach. We welcome JEFF to the organization and look forward to introducing him to BREWERS fans at BREWERS ON DECK (the fan event to be held this SUNDAY).”
LEVERING said, “I am thrilled beyond words to be joining the MILWAUKEE BREWERS broadcast team as well as their talented front office, Being part of a radio booth that features the legendary BOB UECKER and JOE BLOCK is a tremendous honor, and a responsibility that I don’t take lightly. Calling games in the Major Leagues has been a dream of mine since I was a kid and to have a chance to realize it is truly amazing. I can’t thank the BREWERS enough for their faith in me and allowing me the opportunity to work in such a terrific organization. My family is excited to immerse ourselves in MILWAUKEE and be diehard BREWERS fans.”
JOURNAL BROADCAST GROUP Director of Network Operations CARL MOLL said, “We’re excited to integrate JEFF into the BREWERS radio broadcast with BOB and JOE. His work in the minor leagues has been impressive and he’s ready to move to the Major League level.”
