Mike Krukow enters his 22nd season in the television booth, and his 18th full season on the radio side. Seven-time Emmy award winner, Krukow is the broadcast team’s color analyst on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area and NBC Bay Area telecasts, and on KNBR Radio broadcasts. Krukow’s playing career in the Major Leagues spanned 14 years and three teams: the Chicago Cubs (1976-81), Philadelphia Phillies (1982) and San Francisco Giants (1983-89), where his enthusiasm both on and off the field made him a fan favorite. “Kruk”, named as the starting right-handed pitcher to the 1980’s Giants All-Decade Team in a vote by Bay Area media in 1999, is noted for his deep knowledge of the game and tremendous sense of humor. A 20-game winner for the Giants in 1986, Krukow retired after the 1989 season with a 124-117 career record and a 3.90 ERA. In 2008, Kruk was honored as a member of the inaugural class of Giants alumni with a plaque in the Giants Wall of Fame which lines the wall outside of AT&T Park. Krukow resides in San Luis Obispo with his wife, Jennifer. The couple has five children, Jarek, Baker, Tessa, Chase and Weston, and one grandson, Coen.
