Marquee Sports Network releases statement on Len Kasper leaving the network

Long-time Cubs announcer Len Kasper was officially announced as a new member of the White Sox radio team on Friday morning.

Marquee Sports Network released the following statement that they are happy for Kasper and a search is underway for the next play-by-play announcer for the Cubs.

“Len has been a fantastic play-by-play man for several years here with the Chicago Cubs, and we wish him nothing but the best in this new endeavor," general manager Mike McCarthy said. "Len is chasing a dream which he and I have discussed many times. We made a significant effort to retain Len, but he was resolute that moving to the White Sox radio position was his desire. We honor that and now begin the process of filling what is one of the premiere jobs in sports — play-by-play for the Chicago Cubs. We have already received interest from several prominent candidates who look at the job as anybody would — as a once in a lifetime opportunity to work with one of the most iconic franchises in sports.”
