CBS-TV announced Friday that Boston Red Sox broadcaster Sean McDonough, 29, will replace Jack Buck, 67, as its baseball play-by-play announcer. Buck held the job for the first two seasons the network had the major league contract. CBS decided not to exercise a two-year option on Buck's contract. Ted Shaker, CBS executive producer, said Buck did "fine work," but said he had not fully lived up to the network's expectations. "Was it all we hoped it would be with Jack?

Sometimes announcers need to be saved from themselves, so you have to wonder why ESPN producers at the Penn State-Wisconsin game Saturday weren't whispering — or screaming — in Sean McDonough's ear. With less than five minutes to play and the Badgers routing the Nittany Lions, 45-7, McDonough — and we're giving him the benefit of the doubt here — sought to fill air time. Unfortunately, he did it by turning Penn State apologist in trying to make a case for interim Coach Tom Bradley taking over the program on a permanent basis.

Tuesday night in San Diego, Sean McDonough was at the microphone for one of baseball's headline events, the All-Star Game (at 8:30, EDT, pre-game show at 8). As CBS' No. 1 baseball play-by-play man, McDonough had a national stage, and, though he might not command the salary paid some of the stars on display at Jack Murphy Stadium, it's safe to say he's comfortably in six figures.

Earlier this year, not long after being named CBS' lead baseball play-by-play announcer, Sean McDonough was in his bank in Quincy, Mass. "Hey, I see your dad got you a big new job with CBS," a stranger said. McDonough shuddered. "Oh no, not this again," he said to himself. In 1988, when McDonough was only 25, he was hired to replace longtime announcer Ned Martin on Boston Red Sox telecasts. At the time, McDonough's major league baseball experience consisted of one exhibition game.

The network baseball play-by-play job has traditionally gone to an announcer with a big name and many years of experience, like Vin Scully, Curt Gowdy and Jack Buck. CBS' new play-by-play man, Sean McDonough, is no big name. He isn't even the most famous broadcaster in his family. That honor goes to his father Will, a regular on NBC's "NFL Live." The younger McDonough has been called the busiest announcer most people have never heard of.

His CBS football partner next season will be Dan Dierdorf.
