Brewers Radio Network Superstar: Kent Sommerfeld

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has been going into a foray of experimenting with video media on their web site the last few years.  A few of the benefits have centered around the Milwaukee Brewers.

It seems like much of my life Bob Uecker and even Jim Powell of the Milwaukee Brewers Radio Network team have been a fixture in my home.  One of the often mentioned but rarely heard members of that team is Kent Sommerfeld. 

Kent510_1Who is Kent Sommerfeld you may ask?  Well if you don’t listen to many Brewer’s radio broadcast this is probably over your head.  Kent Sommerfeld is the Brewers Radio Network producer/engineer for all the broadcasts.  As someone who worked in media before, I have a lot of respect for the behind the scenes people.  I even think Bob and Jim would refer to Kent a year or two ago to "semi-retired Kent Sommerfeld".  I never figured what that was all about.  It seems like that label has dropped recently.  Here is the story at the Journal-Sentinel.  Also he has a blog called Kent’s Korner where he posts pictures on his road trips.

I found another similar segment about Tim Driscoll, the official scorer for the Milwaukee Brewers.

    Thanks for the help against the Mets today. That was quite a little pounding. Hopefully we can help y’all out by beating the Bucs this evening and gain a two game lead on first place in the East. Nice blog. I’ve always loved the Brewers. I mean what more baseball than beer? Good luck with the rubber game tomorrow!
