Scott Franzke is the play-by-play voice of the Phillies. His career began as a studio host for the now-defunct Prime Sports Radio Network (now Fox Sports Radio) in 1994 which led him three years later to be the host of the Texas Rangers radio pre and post game shows 1997-98 and 2002-2005.
In 2006, he came to the Phillies to take over those same duties when Tom McCarthy was hired away from the Phillies by the New York Mets, their National League Eastern Division rivals.
Now, McCarthy is back doing TV and Franzke has taken over completely on the radio, working the entire game along side Larry Andersen.
