Robert Sherman Hired as New Voice of Kenosha Kingfish Baseball
The Kenosha Kingfish have officially found their new broadcaster for the 2015 season. Robert Sherman, a current freshman at DePauw University, will serve as the radio voice of the Kenosha Kingfish in addition to other public relations duties.
While this will be the first full-time broadcasting job for the Cleveland, Ohio native, play-by-play is hardly unknown to Sherman. In high school he founded and led the University School Programming Network (USPN), an Internet TV station that covers all University School athletics. Sherman, for his efforts with USPN, received significant coverage in local newspapers and ultimately received a scholarship from northeast Ohio’s local Emmy chapter.
In just one semester at DePauw, Sherman was promoted to director of the sports department at the school’s radio station WGRE in addition to his active role as one of the school’s main play-by-play announcers. Sherman just received an award from the Indiana Associated Press Broadcasters Association for best play-by-play broadcasting.
WGRE’s station director, Dr. Jeff McCall, has this to say about Robert Sherman: “Robert has made an immediate impact on the DePauw sports scene with his energetic and highly informative play-by-play broadcasts of Tiger sports. He is highly regarded by coaches and players within the DePauw sports world. He has a very bright future in sports broadcasting, to be sure.”
Sherman’s broadcasting partner, Parker Schwartz, the play-by-play announcer for the Green Bay Bullfrogs, calls Sherman a “fireball” for his on-air passion and emotion. Schwartz goes on to praise Sherman further as he says: “Robert is an all around talent and I am fortunate to have worked with him in both television and radio. His knowledge of baseball, alongside his passion for broadcasting, will make him a fan favorite in Kenosha.”
Sherman is very excited to begin working with the Kingfish and getting behind the microphone to call all the baseball action this summer.
