Scott Geyer is in his 26th year with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2020, his 21st season as the organization’s Vice President, Broadcasting. In his current role with the D-backs, Geyer has direct oversight of all TV and radio team broadcasters and is the team’s main liaison to the TV and radio rights holders FOX Sports Arizona, Bonneville Phoenix and TUDN 105.1 FM. He also oversees and manages the ballpark’s audio/video and scoreboard systems and technical operations. He is the main contact to MLB for broadcasting-related business and is the executive advisor to the club for most national, international and regional MLB broadcasting policies, issues and relations.
Geyer was part of the executive team that negotiated a long-term TV rights agreement with FOX Sports Arizona that helps bolster the club’s financial stability in the media rights revenue category. He also helped negotiate a partnership with Bonneville Phoenix and Univision Deportes Radio, the Spanish-language home for the D-backs.
During the past several years, Geyer and his staff have played a key role in 2 significant projects that each launched in 2011 - the construction of the D-backs’ new Spring Training Facility at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick and the 2011 MLB All-Star Week hosted at Chase Field. He played an integral role prior to the start of the 2008 season in the installation of the new Daktronics HD video scoreboard, a $14-million project that also included the build-out of video production rooms to service the new board, and the technology behind the digital media network throughout the ballpark’s concourses. The D-backs’ 136-feet wide by 46- feet tall video board in center field, along with other updates with video technologies throughout the ballpark under Geyer’s direction, enhances the fan experience at Chase Field.
Geyer, who has more than 39 years of experience in sports television, served as the director for each of the D-backs’ self-produced game telecasts on KTVK-TV (Ch. 3) and on FOX Sports Arizona for the organization’s first 10 years. He joined the D-backs in 1995 to prepare the organization for its live television productions and to provide design insight into the construction of Chase Field from the media point of view. Prior to his move to baseball, he spent 10 years as a producer and director for the Phoenix Suns’ television package, while also managing the production and post-production division of US Airways Center (now Talking Stick Resort Arena) since it opened in 1992. Prior to that, Geyer served as a freelance TV broadcast technician either as a director, videotape operator or cameraman for several years on national and regional network sports programs including the NBA, NFL, MLB, NCAA and the Olympics (1984, ‘88).
Geyer is a native of the San Francisco Bay Area and graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in broadcast journalism, prior to making Phoenix his home in 1980.
He and his wife, Lisa, have 2 sons: Adam and Travis.
