Welcome to the Phillies Nation Podcast!
On today’s podcast, Pat Gallen is joined by Scott Franzke, the Philadelphia Phillies radio play-by-play man. Pat and Scott break down the awful play of the Phils as of late, the final six games of the regular season, and what Harry Kalas meant to the Phillies.
Scott made his Phillies debut in 2006, when he was named the pre- and post-game host for Phillies radio broadcasts and did radio play-by-play in the middle innings. In 2007, he took over as the main play-by-play commentator for Phillies radio broadcasts, working with Larry Andersen. Last year the duo was honored at the Philadelphia A.I.R. (Achievement in Radio) Awards, winning for Best Live Sports Event Coverage for the second consecutive year.
A graduate of Southern Methodist University (SMU) in 1994 with a degree in broadcast journalism, Scott began his radio career as a talk show host with Prime Sports Radio, a national all-sports radio network based in Dallas. He worked for two seasons as the part-time pre- and post-game host for his hometown Texas Rangers (1997-98) before becoming the voice of the Kane County Cougars, a single-A affiliate of the Florida Marlins (1999-2001).
