Morgan started his broadcasting career in 1985 for the Cincinnati Reds. On September 11, 1985, Morgan called Pete Rose’s record breaking 4,192 career hit. A year later, Morgan started a nine year stint as an announcer for the San Francisco Giants.
From 1988 to 1989, Morgan served as an announcer for ABC, where he helped announce Monday Night and Thursday Night Baseball games. Morgan was on the field at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park alongside Hall of Famer Willie Mays (whom Morgan was getting set to interview) the moment the Loma Prieta earthquake hit at 5:04 p.m.
From 1994 to 2000, Morgan teamed with Bob Costas and (until 1997) Bob Uecker to call baseball games on NBC (and in association with The Baseball Network from 1994 to 1995). During this period, Morgan helped call three World Series (1995, 1997, and 1999) and four All-Star Games (1994, 1996, 1998, and 2000).
Morgan was a member of ESPN’s lead baseball broadcast team alongside Jon Miller and Orel Hershiser. Besides teaming with Miller for Sunday Night Baseball telecasts, Morgan has also teamed with Miller for League Championship Series and World Series broadcasts on ESPN radio. Morgan’s last year of work for ESPN was 2010.
