According to Paola Bovin at azcentral.com, broadcaster Jeff Munn will be leaving the Arizona Diamondbacks‘ broadcast team to pursue his dream of becoming a full-time, play-by-play announcer. Munn, who has been with the organization since 1996, was the radio pregame and postgame radio host and occasional fill-in for play-by-play for the D-backs. He has also been involved in other big events such as the 2001 World Series and the 1995 NBA All-Star Game. Munn is the voice of the Arizona State women’s basketball team and the stadium announcer for the Fiesta and Cactus bowls.
Per D-backs’ team president Derrick Hall:
"We are deeply grateful to him for his long run of service to the franchise, as he will remain a part of the soundtrack of our history"
We wish the best of luck to Jeff Munn as he seeks his dream job.
