“Pops” will once again call the action of all 68 regular season games on the Logger Radio Network and is the longest tenured play-by-play man in the Northwoods League. Pappadopoulos has seen and called every Logger game but one since the
Loggers inception in 2003.

For the past five years, he has also worked as the news and sports director at WCOW/WKLJ.
