PORTLAND, Ore. — Kevin Calabro will return as the Portland Trail Blazers TV announcer next season after a one-year absence from the team. The news was first reported by John Canzano of The Oregonian.
The Blazers said in a press release Wednesday Jordan Kent would no longer serve as the team's play-by-play announcer, as he did for the 2020-21 season.
“We’re extremely thankful for the hard work, dedication and passion Jordan has put into his roles with the Trail Blazers,” said Chris McGowan, President and CEO of the Trail Blazers and Rose Quarter. “He brought a wealth of basketball knowledge and experience to the organization and we wish him nothing but the best as he continues in his career.”
Prior to joining the Blazers, Calabro was a television and radio announcer for the Seattle Supersonics from 1987 to 2008, when the franchise relocated to Oklahoma City. Calabro has called games on television and radio for the NBA, college football, college basketball and Major League Soccer.
