Benetti and Sox radio voice Len Kasper will debut their podcast “Sox Degrees” on Monday.
White Sox TV voice Jason Benetti already is one of the busiest people in sports broadcasting. Now he’s adding the Summer Olympics to his list of responsibilities.
Benetti confirmed he’ll be calling baseball for NBC in the Tokyo Olympics, which begin July 23. His schedule is still being worked out.
Benetti, who already is in the NBC family with NBC Sports Chicago, also calls major-league baseball and college basketball and football for ESPN. He’s the lead voice for the network’s Statcasts of MLB games, and he called his first NBA game this season.
On Monday, he and Sox radio voice Len Kasper will debut their podcast “Sox Degrees.”
Beth Mowins, who occasionally fills in calling Cubs games on Marquee Sports Network, will call Olympic softball. Baseball and softball are back in the Olympics for the first time since 2008 in Beijing.
NBC is expected to announce more broadcast assignments today.
