Television

In its 28th season with the team, and 11th as the exclusive local TV home of the Cardinals, Bally Sports Midwest (rebranding from FOX Sports Midwest) is scheduled to carry 151 regular season games this season.  Bally Sports Midwest will continue to produce Cardinals Live pre- and postgame shows for every regular season telecast, live from the network’s studio in Ballpark Village.  Play-by-play announcer Dan McLaughlin (24th season) and analysts Jim Edmonds, Ricky Horton, Brad Thompson and Rick Ankiel will call game action.  Jim Hayes, Scott Warmann and Erica Weston will serve as reporters and hosts for Cardinals Live, while former Cardinals pitcher Al Hrabosky serves as pre- and postgame studio analyst.  The network will also continue to air Cardinals Insider, the club-produced weekly television show, beginning on Sunday, April 4 and the weekly Cardinals Kids Show beginning Saturday, April 3.

Bally Sports Midwest’s regular season coverage starts Opening Day, April 1, at 2 PM CT with a one-hour Cardinals Live pregame.  Bally Sports Midwest will also produce an expanded Cardinals Live pregame before the home opener on April 8; live coverage that day will begin at 1:30 PM CT.

Cardinals programming airing on Bally Sports Midwest will stream live on the all-new Bally Sports app and on BallySports.com for consumers who authenticate through their pay-TV service.  The app and web site will launch in coordination with the network rebrand on March 31. The FOX Sports GO app will update to the new Bally Sports app upon the rebrand.

Currently, nine regular season games will be carried exclusively on either ESPN, FOX (aired locally on KTVI) or FS1 as part of Major League Baseball’s national television packages, with another four ESPN games scheduled to co-exist with the local Bally Sports Midwest telecast.  Two games have not been scheduled, but will be televised nationally or carried locally on Bally Sports Midwest.  The television schedule is subject to change.

Radio

In addition to televised game coverage, KMOX 1120 AM, the team’s flagship radio station, and most stations on the Cardinals Radio Network, will carry every regular season game.  New for 2021, Cardinals games will be simulcast locally on 98.7 FM.

Broadcasters Mike Shannon (50th and final season) and John Rooney (16th season) will again share the Cardinals radio calls at home.  Mike will call approximately 50 home games, while Ricky Horton will continue to join John Rooney behind the microphone for all Cardinals road games and the remaining home games.  Mike Claiborne returns to assist with broadcasts while Tom Ackerman, Kevin Wheeler and Joe Pott will serve as pre- and postgame hosts on KMOX.  This year marks KMOX’s 11th consecutive season as the flagship station and 64th year overall.  The Cardinals Radio Network consists of 145 radio stations in eight states and is the largest radio network in MLB.

Spanish Radio

The Cardinals, in cooperation with WIJR 880 AM La Tremenda, will produce 81 Spanish-language radio broadcasts for all St. Louis home games during the 2021 season.

Play-by-play announcer Polo Ascencio and color analyst Bengie Molina will return for their sixth season to provide Hispanic and Latino fans with a way to follow the Cardinals in their native language.  All 81 broadcasts will air locally on WIJR 880 AM and be streamed via cardinals.com and the MLB app.
