Kevin Calabro Leaving Trail Blazers Broadcast Booth to ‘Focus on His Family’

After The Oregonian broke the news that Kevin Calabro was parting ways with the Portland Trail Blazers as their play-by-play broadcaster, the team announced the veteran sportscaster was indeed stepping down to “focus on his family.”

“This was a very difficult decision to make and I want to thank the Allen family and Chris McGowan for their support and understanding,” Calabro said in the team’s press release. “I’ll always be grateful to the Rip City fans for welcoming me into the family.”

As noted in The Oregonian, the decision was Calabro’s choice, and he was not apart of the Blazers recent layoffs.

“Kevin brought years of experience and professionalism to the Trail Blazers broadcast team with a one-of-a-kind voice that is unmistakable,” Blazers President and CEO Chris McGowan said. “We appreciate Kevin sharing his energy and talents with Rip City and wish him the best in his next chapter.”

Portland’s broadcaster for the remainder of the 2020 season will be TV studio host and former Oregon Ducks three-sport athlete Jordan Kent.

As a reminder, no local broadcast teams will be in Orlando. All games from the bubble will be called remotely from local studios instead.

Calabro joined the Blazers broadcast team prior to the 2016-17 season. The broadcast team won Northwest Regional EMMYs for Best Sports Broadcast in 2019 and Best Sports Play-By-Play in 2018.
