Harry Kalas called Phillies games on the radio and television broadcasts from 1971 until his death in 2009.

The Philadelphia Phillies Radio Network is a network of 21 radio stations in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey that air Major League Baseball games of the Philadelphia Phillies.[1] The lead announcers are Scott Franzke with play-by-play and Larry Andersen with color commentary.[2] The flagship station is WIP-FM 94.1 in Philadelphia. The broadcasts were discontinued on the former AM flagship station WPHT 1210 in 2016.[3] This change was unpopular with a large segment of the fanbase as game broadcasts could be received via WPHT over a large portion of the Eastern United States.

WTTM in Philadelphia and WIBG in Atlantic City, New Jersey also airs a separate broadcast in Spanish. Danny Martinez is the play by play announcer, while Bill Kulik provides color commentary.[4]
