John Rooney: Cardinals Announcer

New, 12 comments

[St. Louis Post Dispatch]

The shakeups continue with the Cardinals radio broadcasts.

Wayne Hagin, who was hired three seasons ago to replace Jack Buck after the legendary Cards broadcaster died, has been fired.

He'll be replaced by John Rooney, a former St. Louis sportscaster who has spent the last 18 years broadcasting the Chicago White Sox on radio. Rooney will work with Mike Shannon, who will be back for his 35th season on the air.

The Cardinals moved their broadcasts from Uber-station KMOX this off-season, so I don't know what thier signal strength will be like, but I imagine you'll still be able to pick up some games with Rooney at the helm in Chicago.
