The Texas Rangers' broadcast teams for most of 2011 will remain in tact for the 2012 season.
Play-by-play announcer Dave Barnett and analyst Tom Grieve will be the TV team, and Eric Nadel and Steve Busby will be the radio team. Eleno Ornelas will return as the lead play-by-play announcer for Rangers Spanish radio broadcasts.
“We were very pleased with the response we received to our television and radio broadcasts last season,” Rangers CEO and president Nolan Ryan said in a statement. “Dave and Steve did a great job in their new roles, and we are happy to welcome both teams back.”
Barnett joined the Rangers' radio broadcast in 2009, and moved to the TV booth in May of 2011. Busby replaced Barnett on the radio broadcast.
It will be Greive's 18th season as TV analyst. Nadel, who is a finalist for the 2012 Ford C. Frick Award, will be entering his 34th season of broadcasting Rangers baseball. It'll be Ornelas' 13th season, his 10th as the lead play-by-play announcer.
