Pappadopolous Returning to Logger Radio Network

La Crosse, Wis. – The man who called every game but one over the first ten years of La Crosse Loggers Baseball is returning to the Logger Radio Network broadcast booth in 2015 as team officials announced that John Pappadopolous will resume his post as the play-by-play voice.

The last radio call that Pappadopolous made for the Loggers was a famous one when he relayed the final out of 2012 NWL Championship game over the LRN airways.  In 2013, Pappadapolous stepped away from the Loggers but certainly not the broadcast booth as he had the distinct privilege to serve as the color analyst for the Memphis Redbirds, the Triple A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals.

Pappapolous will resume his post in the press box to call the action during all of the 72 regular season games on the La Crosse Loggers Radio Network.  All 72 of those regular season games will once again broadcast over the LRN flagship station, The Eagle 102.7 FM (KQEG), and select games will broadcast on Q102FM (Viroqua).

Pappadopoulos brings a great deal of experience with him back to the Loggers, with time served as the voice of the La Crosse Night Train of the NIFL, the backup voice of the La Crosse Bobcats CBA basketball team, as well as the news and sports director at WCOW/WKLJ.  Additionally, he has also spent time hosting a daily afternoon sports show on ESPN, covered the Green Bay Packers, Wisconsin Badgers, and been a regular ESPN local SportsCenter anchor.  

Prior to his move to the Coulee Area, the New Jersey native worked in Boston as an on-air sportscaster at Sports Radio WEEI.  Pappadopolous also has a great deal of experience working in Minor League baseball.   He has worked as a reporter or broadcaster for three different Minor League clubs, most recently with the Memphis Redbirds, the AAA affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals.

John and his wife, Polly, reside in Holmen, WI, and they have a daughter named Olivia.
