Waubonsee Supporter, 1978-1984
Jim Teckenbrock probably holds records in sports broadcasting. A former Chiefs coach, Teckenbrock’s coaching eye and overall sports knowledge informed his early broadcasts at WMRO in Aurora in the 1970s and 80s, leading to a part-time gig at WSPY Radio in 1996. Since becoming a full-time announcer, Teckenbrock has called the action of countless local sporting events over the years, in all kinds of weather and from a wide variety of vantage points. Each year he calls nearly every basketball game of the Plano Christmas Classic; Last December alone, he described the action of 32 games over five days. In addition, over the last 12 years, he has hosted his own Saturday morning sports show and given daily sports reports six days a week, often detailing the latest exploits of Waubonsee’s teams.
