iHeartMedia Denver announced today that veteran sports broadcaster Jerry Schemmel has returned to the KOA Colorado Rockies Radio Network, effective immediately. Schemmel shares play-by-play and color analyst duties with Jack Corrigan for all 162 Colorado Rockies games and returns to KOA for his eleventh season following a two-year hiatus.
“I am elated to be coming back to the KOA Colorado Rockies Radio Network booth,” said Schemmel. “I couldn’t be happier to be working with Jack Corrigan and Producer, Jesse Thomas. I can’t wait to roll up my sleeves and get back at it.”
“We are delighted to welcome Jerry back to KOA’s Colorado Rockies broadcasts,” said Brenda Egger, President of iHeartMedia’s Denver Region. “Jerry’s voice is synonymous with sports in Colorado, and it’s an honor to have him call Rockies’ games alongside Jack Corrigan.”
Schemmel is one of the most-recognizable voices in Colorado broadcasting. In addition to the Colorado Rockies, Schemmel has spent 18-years as the play-by-play announcer of the Denver Nuggets. And most recently, he has served as the radio voice for the University of Northern Colorado Football and Basketball. Schemmel also hosts and produces “Amazing Americans,” a nationally-syndicated weekend radio show.
