Wayne Larrivee and Larry McCarren enter their 20th season of broadcasts together across the Packers Radio Network in 2018. Though both are veteran broadcasters, the two were paired for the first time in 1999 to bring the color and excitement of Green Bay Packers football to fans throughout Wisconsin, Upper Michigan and four more-distant states.

Larrivee, who grew up as a fan of the Packers in his native Lee, Mass., enters his 43rd consecutive year broadcasting NFL games, having joined Green Bay’s broadcast team after 14 seasons as the radio voice of the Chicago Bears (1985-98) on WGN and WMAQ Radio in Chicago. Earlier, he had done play-by-play of Kansas City Chiefs games for seven years (1978-84) on KCMO Radio in Kansas City. Known for his thorough preparation and his moderated, yet enthusiastic, call of the action, Larrivee’s more-recent credits also include play-by-play for Big Ten Conference football and basketball for the Big Ten Network and NCAA basketball for Dial Global.

Highly decorated, the 65-year-old Larrivee was named Illinois Sportscaster of the Year in 1997 and is a seven-time winner of the Silver Dome Award, presented by the Illinois Broadcasters Association, for best radio football play-by-play. He is also a four-time winner of a Midwest Emmy for Chicago Bulls basketball play-by-play. In May 2011, he was honored as Communicator of the Year by the Wisconsin Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America.

A 1977 graduate of Emerson College in Boston, he received the school’s Alumni Achievement Award in June 2005. In 2015, the college appointed him to the Alumni Association board of directors. Larrivee also has done play-by-play of Chicago Bulls basketball on WGN-TV from 1991-2008, Chicago Cubs baseball, University of Iowa football, Quad Cities (Iowa) Angels minor league baseball, University of Missouri basketball and Kansas City Kings basketball games.

McCarren first joined the team’s 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 has been a favorite among television viewers in northeast Wisconsin. McCarren joined the Green Bay Packers as an analyst in 2015. McCarren has four times 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. McCarren, 66, originally is from Park Forest, Ill.

Radio station WTMJ, which has been broadcasting the team’s games since November 1929, continues its long-standing role as the flagship station of the Packers Radio Network.

The Packers Radio Network is made up of 51 stations in six states.
