The Nashville Sounds have announced a multi-year partnership with ESPN 94.9 FM to be the team’s flagship station, which includes the broadcast of all 120 games during the 2021 season.

Jeff Hem will handle the play-by-play duties for all broadcasts in his ninth season as the “Voice of the Sounds.” Hem’s broadcasts will begin 15 minutes before the scheduled first pitch with a pre-game show and will conclude with a 15-minute post-game show.

“We’re very excited to rejoin the ESPN Radio family here in Nashville,” said Sounds General Manager and Chief Operating Officer Adam Nuse. “The return of Nashville Sounds baseball has been long-awaited, and we’re thrilled to have our broadcasts heard near and far on ESPN 94.9.”

ESPN 94.9, the sister station of ESPN 102.5 The Game has a strong broadcast reach throughout Middle Tennessee and is simulcast on 95.1 FM in Rutherford County and worldwide on The Game Nashville streaming app.

“We’re absolutely thrilled about our new partnership with the Nashville Sounds,” says VP/Market Manager Dennis Gwiazdon. “The addition of professional baseball to our existing coverage of the Nashville Predators, Nashville SC, Vanderbilt and MTSU men’s football and basketball further cements our mission to be Nashville’s best sports talk station. Let’s play ball!”

In addition to the ESPN 94.9 airwaves, fans can catch all broadcasts on, the MiLB First Pitch app, and The Game Nashville’s streaming app.
