Todd Hamilton

The Radio Voice of the Hoppers

Todd has done baseball play-by- play in 33 of his 37 seasons as a broadcaster. Hamilton began his baseball career doing Western Kentucky’s games from 1985-2000, with the exception of 1990 when he was the radio voice of the Springfield (IL) Cardinals, the St. Louis Cardinals Class A affiliate in the Midwest League. Hamilton also served on the broadcasts for one season
(2002) at the University of Louisiana Lafayette. He has also done a multitude of high school baseball games in his career.

One of the Glasgow, Kentucky native’s claims to fame is that he was a finalist to replace Joe Buck, now of Fox Sports, on the Louisville Redbirds radio broadcasts following the 1990 season. Hamilton has met several legendary baseball broadcasters including the late Harry Caray, Ernie Harwell, Jack Buck and Milo Hamilton. He has also spent time with Marty Brennaman among others.

Hamilton has been the voice of the Hoppers throughout the team’s seven year history. You can follow the Hoppers through his calls on all home regular season games and all post-season home and away contests. Listen to Todd at the home of the Hoppers, News Radio 95.3 FM/1230 AM WHOP and worldwide at
