Owlz Name Zanaboni Director of Media and Communications

March 17, 2015

The Orem Owlz are happy to announce Joey Zanaboni as their play-by-play broadcaster and Director of Media and Communications for the upcoming 2015 season. 

"It's such an honor to be chosen for this position," Zanaboni said. "Whether it's Howie Kendrick, Mark Trumbo, or Garrett Richards, some of the biggest names in the MLB have gotten their start in Provo/Orem. I can't wait to watch the next crop of stars develop as players and professionals with the Owlz. To be a part of the Orem Owlz, and a part of the Angels organization, is an incredible opportunity."

Zanaboni hails from St. Louis, Missouri and currently serves as the Sports Information Director and basketball/baseball broadcaster at Coahoma Community College in Clarksdale, Mississippi. A graduate of Rockhurst University, he spent time working at KFNS 590 AM and KTRS 550 AM in St. Louis before breaking into play-by-play as the announcer for the Derby (KS) Twins of the Jayhawk Collegiate League. 

This will be Zanaboni's first season in affiliated minor league baseball, but he is no stranger to the professional ranks. Last year Zanaboni was the lead radio broadcaster and Director of Media Relations for the River City Rascals of the independent Frontier League.

"I believe Joey brings a high level of energy and passion to the broadcast booth and the organization," said General Manager Justo Vazquez. "We want to not only deliver a great product, but also expand our reach to the fans on a more personal level. I believe Joey is the perfect choice to help bridge the gap between the game and our fans."

Orem opens its season on June 18th at Ogden and their home opener is June 20th at the Home of the Owlz. Catch live broadcasts of all Owlz games this year at and all home games on
