Judd Sirott (born January 1969) is an American sportscaster on WGN Radio's coverage of the Chicago Blackhawks and the Chicago Fire Soccer Club. He previously appeared on WGN's broadcasts of Chicago Cubs baseball, when his duties included play-by-play during the 5th inning, scoreboard updates for other MLB games throughout the broadcast, and hosting the pregame and postgame shows. When the Cubs moved to WBBM (AM) beginning in the 2015 season, Sirott remained with WGN, and WSCR sportscaster Mark Grote was hired to fill Sirott's former position. Sirott serves as the Chicago Fire's alternate radio play-by-play announcer when primary announcer Roger Twibell works for CBSSN.

On Blackhawks broadcasts Sirott serves as the pregame, intermission, and postgame host.

Sirott was previously, for 12 years, the broadcast voice of the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League.

He also does play-by-play coverage of the Red Varsity division of the Illinois High School ice hockey finals on Comcast SportsNet Chicago.

Judd graduated Buffalo Grove High School in 1987 and the University of Michigan in 1991. Sirott is the nephew of veteran Chicago broadcaster Bob Sirott.
