The Colorado Rockies are broadcast locally in Colorado on the radio and on both cable and over-the-air television.


The flagship radio station of the Rockies Radio Network is KOA 850 AM. Games are carried on the network in eight states. [1]

Jeff Kingery, who was with the team in the radio booth since its inaugural season in 1993, retired at the end of the 2009 season after 17 years broadcasting Rockies games.[2] Kingery is famous for his home run call, that ball's going and it ain't coming back!

Kingery's long-time partner in the booth, Jack Corrigan, assumed primary play-by-play duties after Kingery's retirement. Corrigan's signature home run call is, It's touch 'em all time!

Beginning with the 2010 season, Jerry Schemmel has partnered with Corrigan, in the color commentator role (and calling middle innings while Corrigan does color). [3]

One of the two radio broadcasters will occasionally substitute for one of the television broadcasters if necessary.[4]

Drew Goodman and Jeff Huson call the Rockies games on television. [4] Goodman's home run call is take a good look, you won't see it for long!

Rockies pregame and postgame shows are handled by Jenny Cavnar, Marc Stout, and Cory Sullivan. Cavnar and Stout also offer on-camera in-game commentary from the stands, along with Brad Thompson. Ryan Spilborghs sometimes calls games in the broadcast booth in the absence of Huson. Both Huson and Spilborghs will also occasionally appear on pregame and postgame shows.
