The Colorado Rockies are broadcast locally in Colorado on the radio and on both cable and over-the-air television.
Jeff Kingery, who was with the team in the radio booth since its inaugural season in 1993, retired at the end of the 2009 season after 17 years broadcasting Rockies games. Kingery is famous for his home run call, that ball's going and it ain't coming back!
Kingery's long-time partner in the booth, Jack Corrigan, assumed primary play-by-play duties after Kingery's retirement. Corrigan's signature home run call is, It's touch 'em all time!
Beginning with the 2010 season, Jerry Schemmel partnered with Corrigan, in the color commentator role (and calling middle innings while Corrigan did color). Prior to the 2020 season, Schemmel was dismissed and replaced with Mike Rice.
One of the two radio broadcasters will occasionally substitute for one of the television broadcasters if necessary.
