Marquee Sports Network’s play-by-play and color commentary duo of Jon Sciambi and Jim Deshaies will be calling Chicago Cubs games for multiple seasons to come after agreeing to contract extensions, the network announced Tuesday.
The 2022 season will be Sciambi’s second with the club. Deshaies goes into his 10th year calling Cubs games.
“I could not be more excited to continue being part of both the Marquee and Cubs families going forward,” said Sciambi. “Getting to work with my buddy JD, as well as Taylor, Elise, and the entire production crew has been an absolute blast and there is nothing better than calling Wrigley Field home and broadcasting for the best fans in the game.”
“This has been and continues to be a dream job for me and it is a joy to saddle up alongside Boog, Taylor, Elise, our great production team, the leadership at Marquee and the Cubs, and everyone else that makes our group so special,” Deshaies added.
During his career, Sciambi has been the voice of Sunday Night Baseball on ESPN Radio and has called games for the Marlins and Braves. Deshaies spent 16 seasons with the Astros before joining the Cubs.
The two helped Marquee claim a 2021 Chicago/Midwest Regional Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in a Live Sporting Event.
“The Cubs broadcast booth has always been extremely important to Cubs fans, and we’re proud to have Boog and JD continuing this legacy,” said Mike Santini, Marquee Sports Network SVP of Programming and Production.
