Michigan announces new broadcast team for football season
The University of Michigan and LEARFIELD have announced the new broadcast team for football games during the upcoming season.
Longtime sideline announced Doug Karsch and former Michigan football player and team captain Jon Jansen will work together in the radio booth for the 2022 Wolverines football season. Karsch will work as the play-by-play announcer and Jansen will serve as the analyst.
“A great partnership has been formed between Doug and Jon and we look forward to that continuing as our football radio broadcast team moving forward,” said Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel. “We have the No. 1 rated pre-game radio show for a reason; it’s the chemistry, passion and knowledge that Doug and Jon bring to their work. They take tremendous pride in entertaining and informing our fans about our team, coaches and all that involves Michigan Football. Their historical knowledge and relationship with past and present Wolverines makes this a seamless transition in the radio booth.”
Karsch and Jansen will replace Jim Brandstatter and Dan Dierdorf who were in those radio roles for the past 8 seasons. Both were former Michigan football players.
Michigan is coming off a 12-2 season in 2021, winning the B1G championship and earning its first-ever trip to the College Football Playoff.
