Thumbnail image for Jeff Levering.jpgWith opening day just 42 days away, the Pawtucket Red Sox have found the first half of their new radio broadcast team as they announced the hiring of Jeff Levering for the upcoming season.

“Jeff is a talented young broadcaster who impressed us with his style and knowledge,” said PawSox President Mike Tamburro. “We believe fans will quickly come to enjoy his call of the game.”

A graduate of Chapman University (Orange, Calif.), Levering began his career in broadcasting as a field reporter for Fox Sports West/Prime Ticket where he covered the Angels and Dodgers.

His minor league broadcasting career started in 2007 with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes (High A, Los Angeles Angels) where he was Director of Broadcasting and Media Relations through 2009.

Prior to reaching Pawtucket,Levering helmed the radio broadcasts for the Springfield Cardinals (Double A, St. Louis) where he also served as the team’s Manager of Public Relations for the past three seasons.

“It is an immense honor to be chosen as the next broadcaster for the Pawtucket Red Sox,” said Levering in a press release. “This is one of the finest minor league broadcasting jobs in the country and with that comes great responsibility and expectations. I look forward to contributing to the PawSox both on and off the air.”

Following the 2012 season the broadcast booth became barren with the departures of Steve Hyder and Aaron Goldsmith.

After nine seasons with the organization Hyder resigned his position behind the mic in December and Goldsmith, after only one season in Pawtucket, was hired as the new radio voice of the Seattle Mariners in January.

A partner for Levering has yet to be determined.
