Broadcast team[edit]

For most Giants radio broadcasts on KNBR, Jon Miller and Dave Flemming take turns calling play-by-play (usually Miller will call innings 1-2, 5-6, 8-9, and Flemming will call innings 3-4, and 7). The Giants' telecasts on CSN Bay Area feature Duane Kuiper as play-by-play announcer with Mike Krukow as color analyst. On KNTV telecasts, Miller teams with Krukow for innings 1-3 and 7-9 while Kuiper moves to the radio booth alongside Flemming; the two then switch places for innings 4-6.

Through 2010, Miller held a second job as play-by-play announcer for ESPN Sunday Night Baseball, and therefore usually missed weekend Giants games. On these occasions, Greg Papa would take Miller's place on either the television or radio side; however, on weekends when the Giants were featured on FOX (Saturday) or ESPN (Sunday) and therefore not on local TV, Kuiper and Krukow would join Flemming on the radio, and Miller would generally work the Saturday game if ESPN was in San Francisco that weekend. Since leaving ESPN, Miller also calls select games on CSN Bay Area.

On July 14, 2006, for a Friday night home game, Flemming made his television broadcast debut for the Giants. Since then, Flemming and Kuiper have taken turns calling all weekend road games on the radio and on CSN Bay Area (Flemming calling innings 1-3, 7-9, and Kuiper calling innings 4-6 on the radio; and vice-versa on TV). However, Flemming solely calls all weekend home games and road games against the Oakland A's on the radio. (It is noted that Miller would fill in for Flemming for Saturday's game only if the Sunday game is on ESPN.)

After every game all of the announcers come together on the radio side for the "post game (w)rap", recapping the game's key plays and selecting players-of-the-game in humorous fashion.

Additional broadcasters[edit]

F.P. Santangelo, now with the Washington Nationals, assisted Flemming on some broadcasts, and retired broadcaster Lon Simmons is usually present several times a season. Since May 2007, and only during weekend home games and road games against the A's, retired Giants first baseman J.T. Snow has performed color analyst duties alongside Flemming. In the 2010 season, Doug Greenwald (son of former Giants broadcaster Hank Greenwald and regular announcer for the AAA (Fresno Grizzlies) called several Giants radio broadcasts as a substitute for Flemming.

Spanish-language radio broadcasting duties are handled by Erwin Higueros, who currently handles the play-by-play, and former Giant Tito Fuentes, who performed color analyst duties to Higueros's lead. Fuentes previously was the announcer for the Giants.

Past broadcasters[edit]

Over the years, the Giants have employed numerous other on-air broadcasters, including Hall of Famers Russ Hodges and Lon Simmons, as well as Al Michaels, Hank Greenwald, Ron Fairly, Lindsey Nelson, Ted Robinson, and Joe Angel, among others in English, and Amaury Pi-Gonzalez, in Spanish.
