Description   [from Freebase]

Jerome Michael "Jerry" Trupiano (born 13 October 1947 in St. Louis, Missouri) is an American radio sportscaster, best known for his former role as a play-by-play announcer for the Boston Red Sox. Trupiano is a graduate of Saint Louis University where he began his broadcasting career as a disc jockey on the college radio station. Trupiano hosted a talk show for fourteen years in Houston and called games for MLB's Houston Astros (1985-86), the Montreal Expos (1989-90), the World Hockey Association's Houston Aeros (1974-78), the National Basketball Association's Houston Rockets (1978-80), the National Football League's Houston Oilers (1980-89), Southwest Conference Football (1978-88) and called three games on the CBS Radio Game of the Week in 1991 before joining Joe Castiglione in the Red Sox' radio booth in 1993. Trupiano called the Red Sox' 2004 World Series-winning game at Busch Stadium. Interestingly, the Red Sox radio team was forced to an auxiliary press box due to all of the media coverage and Trupiano called the game from the booth he had used for practice broadcasts nearly three decades earlier.
