1998 Albuquerque Dukes Broadcasters 1998 Albuquerque Dukes Broadcasters on 610 KZSS-AM

Russ Langer

Langer moves to KZSS-AM as part of the Dukes broadcast team in 1998 after
calling Dukes games on KNML-AM and KHTL-AM in 1997.  He is in his third
season of calling Dukes games on the radio.

When Jim Lawwill announced his retirement after 14 years of broadcasting
Dukes baseball with Mike Roberts, Langer was named to join Roberts in
the broadcast booth.  Langer is no stranger to broadcasting minor
league baseball -- he was the voice of the Phoenix Firebirds the last four
years. Langer is also no stranger to Albuquerque -- he graduated from the
University of New Mexico with a degree in Radio and TV Journalism. He also
was a broadcast producer for KKOB-AM in the early 1980's.


Jim Lawwill

After taking 1996 and 1997 off, Lawwill returns as a Dukes broadcaster, 
only this time on KZSS-AM rather than KKOB-AM where he had called Dukes
games with Mike Roberts for 14 years.

Lawwill is familiar to sports fans in New Mexico.  He is a longtime New Mexico
sports broadcaster.  In his television career, he has announced University of
New Mexico Lobos football and basketball games, high school sports football
and basketball championship games, and even charity football games involving
police agencies.  His radio career has mainly been comprised of announcing
thousands of Dukes baseball games.
