Former Packers radio broadcaster Jim Irwin dies

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 23, 2012 – 1:46 pm

Jim Irwin, a radio voice of the Green Bay Packers for 30 years, died on Sunday at the age of 77.

Multiple media outlets have reported that Irwin died of complications from kidney cancer.

Irwin originally joined the Packers radio broadcasts for color commentary in 1969, working alongside Ted Moore and Gary Bender. Then in 1975, Irwin took over play-by-play duties until retiring after the 1998 season. Irwin’s color commentators included Lionel Aldridge, Max McGee and Larry McCarren.

In two of Irwin’s last three seasons, the Packers went to the Super Bowl, winning the title following the 1996 season.

During his distinguished career, Irwin also worked as a play-by-play announcer for Wisconsin Badgers football and Milwaukee Bucks basketball.

Irwin was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 2003. He was named the Wisconsin Sportscaster of the Year 10 times and is a member of the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association Hall of Fame.
