Len Kasper should already be well into his 16th season as the Cubs’ television play-by-play voice, a mark that would have brought him even with Harry Caray. Kasper has done his work for a number of different entities over the past few years, but that was going to change with Marquee in 2020.

He also discussed his love of music, something that is on full display during most broadcasts, and his forthcoming album.

That’s maybe oversimplifying it, so watch for yourself and find out more.
