Longtime DENVER NUGGETS play-by-play voice JERRY SCHEMMEL is joining the COLORADO ROCKIES radio broadcast team on CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KOA-A/DENVER. SCHEMMEL joins JACK CORRIGAN in calling the ROCKIES games on KOA, replacing the retiring JEFF KINGERY.
ALTITUDE SPORTS AND ENTERTANIMENT Pres./CEO JIM MARTIN said, "We are truly sad to lose JERRY from our NUGGETS radio broadcasts. JERRY is the ultimate professional and the best there is at his trade. On top of that he is a true gentleman, a friend, and an all-round great guy. We very much hate to lose him from the ALTITUDE family. However, the ROCKIES job is a fantastic opportunity for JERRY, a dream opportunity in a sport for which I believe he has a true love, and we fully support him in this move. 850 KOA and the ROCKIES will, beyond doubt, be thrilled by the enthusiasm, excellence and class JERRY will bring to the call of the game."
"We have long admired JERRY SCHEMMEL's broadcast work in COLORADO and his commitment to the ROCKY MOUNTAIN community," added ROCKIES Pres. KELI MCGREGOR. "With JERRY and JACK CORRIGAN our fans will be treated to one of the strongest radio broadcast teams in the Major League Baseball."
