TEXAS RANGERS radio voice VICTOR ROJAS is exiting to join the new MLB NETWORK as a studio host. ROJAS, son of former major leaguer COOKIE ROJAS, will serve as a host of the nightly "MLB TONIGHT" and the off-season "HOT STOVE" show. He joined the RANGERS crew in 2004 after two seasons with the ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS.
"VICTOR brings added versatility to our growing roster of on-air talent," said MLB NETWORK President and CEO TONY PETITTI. "VICTOR has been around baseball his entire life, and his experience with the RANGERS as well as in the Minor Leagues as a player, broadcaster and even a GM make him a valuable addition to our studio team."
"I'm very excited," ROJAS said. "It happened really fast. It came out of nowhere. They were very aggressive. It's a challenge, but it's something I'm looking forward to. I loved my time in TEXAS, I could have worked with lead play-by-play announcer) ERIC NADEL for the rest of my life. But this validates everything I've done the past eight years. It's nice to feel wanted."
The RANGERS are heard on a network headed by CBS RADIO News-Talk KRLD-A/DALLAS.
