Dick Enberg gets Padres TV announcing job

Dick Enberg will be the Padres’ television play-by-play announcer, Padres Vice Chairman/Chief Executive Officer Jeff Moorad said Thursday.

Enberg, a La Jolla resident, is expected to join the Padres in Spring Training this February and will call action for the majority of regular-season games on Cox-owned Channel 4 San Diego while continuing his tennis coverage of Wimbledon and the U.S. Open.

“Dick is a legendary figure in sports and we’re honored to have him as the newest member of the Padres,” said Moorad. “He is also a long-time San Diegan and dedicated follower of Padres baseball, making this even more special for all Padres fans.”

Renowned as one of the great sports broadcasters of all-time, Enberg, who has worked for CBS Sports for the past 10 years, is currently serving as a play-by-play voice for their coverage of the NFL, college basketball and the U.S. Open Tennis Championships as well as ESPN’s coverage of Wimbledon.

He has also contributed to coverage of the Masters® and PGA Championship broadcasts on CBS Sports.
