ESPN Radio is the national audio home of the 2022 World Series as the Philadelphia Phillies and Bryce Harper take on the Houston Astros and Jose Altuve. The Fall Classic begins with Game 1 on Friday, October 28, at 8 p.m. ET. This marks ESPN Radio’s 25th consecutive year of World Series coverage. The audio from ESPN Radio World Series broadcasts is available to stream on the ESPN App, ESPNRadio.com and SiriusXM channel 80.

Dan Shulman, the national radio voice of the World Series, will call his 12th and final Fall Classic on ESPN Radio, concluding his 24th postseason on the platform. The veteran baseball broadcaster, who served as the voice of Sunday Night Baseball from 2011-2017, will focus on his full-time role as ESPN college basketball commentator via a new, multi-year contract extension. Shulman will also continue to call Toronto Blue Jays games locally.

Shulman will team up with Olympic Gold Medalist and analyst Jessica Mendoza, who will call her third World Series, and analyst Eduardo Perez, who will call his second, to round out the booth. Buster Olney will serve as reporter. In 2020, Mendoza became the first woman to serve as national radio analyst for the World Series.

Kevin Winter will host pregame coverage at 7 p.m. on ESPN Radio along with Doug Glanville, ESPN Radio’s lead regular season game analyst, for every game of the series.
