Episode 97: Andy Masur, Chicago White Sox

My conversation with Andy Masur. He regularly calls play-by-play for the Chicago White Sox and also hosts their pre/post game shows. Topics of discussion include:

  • Talking into Lincoln Logs pretending they were microphones as a child.
  • Why he chose to go to Bradley University.
  • How internships led him into his first full time job in full time top 40 radio.
  • The zany world of working the overnight shift.
  • Why the trend of voice tracking overnight shows is making things harder on up and comers.
  • How sending an avalanche of tapes to a boss in Chicago helped him get his first major market sports experience.
  • Traveling with Ron Santo and how it lead to his first major league innings with the Chicago Cubs.
  • Why he doesn’t like hearing his old Chicago Cubs tapes.
  • The advice from Pat Hughes that helped him get on track.
  • Leaving his Chicago broadcasting family to pursue a job with the San Diego Padres.
  • Living in San Diego.
  • Taking the high road after being let go after a Padre’s ownership change.
  • Covering USD (San Diego not South Dakota).
  • The piece of advice that inspired him to not feel sorry for himself and to move back to Chicago.
  • Coming full circle and going back to WGN and joining the White Sox Broadcast.
  • Being in a market for three years without finding full time work.
  • How his love of photography helped him get through a difficult time.
  • His broadcast horror stories.
  • His favorite broadcasters to listen to.
  • And much more!
