Larry McCarren joins Packers.com

Posted Jul 25, 2012

Packers Hall of Fame center, veteran broadcaster, to offer insight and analysis

Packers.com, the official team website, will feature a new component with the addition of Packers Hall of Famer and award winning broadcaster Larry McCarren.

McCarren, who makes his debut July 26 with the start of training camp, will offer his insight and analysis on a regular basis during camp through online videos. His video work also will include interviews with players and coaches, game previews and game observations.

“Larry’s experience as a Pro Bowl player and as an award-winning broadcaster has made him a go-to source for news about the Packers,” said Joan Malcheski, director of the Packers’ media group. “We’re very excited to have him join Packers.com and offer his highly regarded football knowledge to our fans.”

McCarren is known to legions of fans as analyst on the Packers Radio Network, where he enters his 14th season working with Wayne Larrivee. He first joined the team's radio broadcasts in 1995, working his first four seasons with Jim Irwin and Max McGee. Inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 1992, he also is a favorite among television viewers in Wisconsin, spending 24 years as a sports director in Green Bay. He additionally served previously as co-host of Inside 1265, the official television program of the Green Bay Packers. He four times has been voted Wisconsin 'Sportscaster of the Year' (1994 1996, 2002, 2007) by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association.

An iron man at center for the Packers for 12 seasons (1973-84), McCarren played in 162 consecutive games – the fourth-longest streak in team history – helping him earn the nickname 'Rock.' He was voted to the Pro Bowl in 1982 and '83. Earlier, he had been a co-captain at the University of Illinois as both a junior and senior.
