Dave Flemming begins his ninth year of broadcasting for the Giants. The 35-year- old will join Jon Miller and Duane Kuiper on the team’s KNBR radio broadcasts and is involved in select games on television. In addition to his work with the Giants, Flemming handles the radio play-by-play duties for Stanford football, and is a lead play-by-play voice for ESPN’s college basketball coverage. In 2008, Sports Business Journal named Flemming “the best of the new generation of baseball announcers”. Flemming’s prior baseball experience includes three seasons as the play-by-play announcer for the Pawtucket Red Sox, Boston’s triple-A affiliate. Before moving to Pawtucket, Flemming broadcast play- by-play for the Visalia Oaks in 2000, and served a dual role as the team’s assistant general manager. The Alexandria, VA native received a Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Stanford, and a Master’s degree in Broadcast Journalism from Syracuse University. Flemming and his wife, Jessica, reside in San Francisco with their twin daughters, Katie and Carter, and son, David Henry.
Jon Miller, honored by the National Baseball Hall of Fame as the 2010 Ford C. Frick award winner for baseball broadcasting excellence, the “Voice of the Giants”, entered his 16th season in the broadcast booth on KNBR Radio and NBC Bay Area. An award-winning broadcast veteran of more than 30 years, Miller worked 21 seasons as the play-by-play commentator on the ESPN Sunday Night Baseball game of the week. Miller, noted for his eloquent game description, golden voice and marvelous sense of humor, spent 14 years with the Baltimore Orioles before coming to San Francisco. Prior to joining Baltimore in 1983, the talented broadcaster spent two seasons with the Texas Rangers (1978-79) and three seasons with the Boston Red Sox (1980-82). After a four-year stint at NBC-TV from 1986-89, where he announced an occasional Game of the Week with either Tony Kubek or Joe Garagiola, Miller matriculated to ESPN. During his tenure at ESPN, he was nominated twice for a national Emmy Award in 1995 and 1996, and broadcast 12 World Series on ESPN Radio. He was also nominated six times for an “ACE” award, emblematic of cable television excellence, and won the award in 1991 and 1996 for his play-by-play work. Miller was named National Sportscaster of the Year by the Association Sportscasters Association in 1998 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame of the National Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association of America the same year. The Bay Area native has also broadcast hockey, basketball and soccer in his distinguished career. Jon and his wife, Janine, currently reside in Moss Beach. They are parents to three daughters, Michelle, Holly and Emilie, and a son, Alexander.
