Veteran baseball broadcaster Jenny Cavnar has been hired by NBC Sports California as the new primary play-by-play announcer for the Oakland Athletics, making history as the first woman to take on this role in Major League Baseball. Cavnar will be the voice for most of the A’s games during the upcoming 2024 season.

Cavnar has more than 20 years of experience in the media business, with 17 years of covering baseball. She has spent the past 12 years as a backup play-by-play announcer for the Colorado Rockies, in addition to hosting pre-game and post-game shows and regional coverage.

In 2018, Cavnar became the first woman in 25 years to handle play-by-play for an MLB game. She is a graduate of Colorado State University and was a college lacrosse player.

“It is a dream come true to join the broadcast team for the Oakland A’s and their rich baseball history,” Cavnar said in a statement. “I’m excited to start my 18th season as a major league broadcaster with my good friend Dallas Braden and share our experiences with the loyal fans of the Athletics as we go on this ride together.”
