Jason Benetti joined ESPN as a play-by-play announcer for college basketball in 2011, and since then has also called college football, baseball and lacrosse games, high school football and Major League Baseball, as well as NFL, college football and MLB on ESPN Radio. Benetti is the play-by-play commentator for ESPN’s MLB Statcast AI coverage of the Wild Card and Home Run Derby.

In addition to his ESPN responsibilities he has had broadcasting jobs with the Fox Sports 1, Westwood One, the Syracuse Chiefs (Washington Nationals Triple-A affiliate), Time Warner Cable Sports, BIG EAST Conference, High Point University, IMG College, Salem Avalanche and DePaul University.

Benetti graduated from Syracuse University in 2005 with bachelor’s degrees in broadcast journalism, economics and psychology. He then went on to earn his J.D. at Wake Forest School of Law in 2011. Benetti has cerebral palsy, which impacts his balance and ability to walk, but not his on-air work.

The Illinois native gives back to his alma mater, as he is involved with the Burton Blatt Institute at Syracuse University’s Communication Hope through Assistive Technology camp. He has previously taught sports broadcasting as an adjunct professor at S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communication.
