Dust Devils Name New Radio BroadcasterPosted: Updated:
PASCO, Wash. -- The Tri-City Dust Devils have introduced Jason Schwartz as the team's new radio play-by-play broadcaster. A Los Angeles native, Schwartz graduated from USC and is currently the play-by-play announcer for USC women's basketball.
"We are excited to have Jason join our staff as the voice of the Dust Devils," said Vice President/General Manager Derrel Ebert. "Jason is a young exciting broadcaster that will bring a freshness to our broadcast that our fans are going to enjoy."
Schwartz is familiar with the Northwest, having spent the last two summers broadcasting in the West Coast League, first with the Wenatchee Apple Sox in 2009 and then with the Corvallis Knights in 2010.
"After spending the last couple summers in the Pacific Northwest, working in the Northwest League has been a goal of mine," said Schwartz. "It's an honor to have been selected as the Dust Devils' new radio voice. I'm thrilled for this opportunity and can't wait for the season to begin."
Mike Boyle, who had been the Voice of the Dust Devils since 2007, is the new broadcaster for the Spokane Indians. He replaces Bob Robertson, who retired after 12 seasons with the club.
All 76 Dust Devils games are broadcast live on Newstalk 870 AM, and available online at dustdevilsbaseball.com and newstalk870.am.
