Is it just me or is radio game coverage subpar compared to decades past? Iím talking about baseball and football. Local college team wasnít on the tv and was listening on the radio. Have also tuned in to a baseball game on the radio. In years past the announcers brought the game to life and found entertaining ways to fill the space between plays. Has sports radio broadcast become a lost art? Sure itís better to watch a game but there are times I canít watch but can listen on the radio.

can't remember the last time i listened to a game on the radio. Had to of been in a car, driving some where. I do recall listening to a race on MRN recently.. and often for that matter. They do a good job of broadcasting the race, constantly changing announcers at every corner...

Radio broadcast is all about the announcer. Good ones are probably few and far between these days because most likely are geared toward TV broadcast, which is ironic because when i am watching a game and even a race on TV, i typically mute the announcers!

I have not listened to a game on the radio either in a long time. When I do, I enjoy Larry Anderson and Scott FRanzke commentationg for the Phillies. Undoubtedly, this past season had LA going nuts over Gabe Kapler's shenanigans.

I think there is a thinning out of the talent.

In the past, there weren't as many TV channels and media outlets.

Today there are so many TV channels, cable channels, internet channels - the good broadcasting talent is spread out.
