The White Sox released a statement yesterday that Chicago’s Very Own, Andy Masur, would be taking over for the late Ed Farmer as the team’s play-by-play announcer on radio broadcasts. Andy joined Bob Sirott and Dave Eanet to talk about doing his dream job, why Darrin Jackson is the perfect person to work with, and whether they’ll use artificial fan noise during games.
