EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT
BALLPARK ENTERTAINMENT, PROMOTIONS AND PRODUCTION
One of the most recognizable public address voices in the game, Chuck Morgan is in his 42nd year in professional baseball. The longtime Rangers employee serves as the club’s public address announcer and oversees all scoreboard and video production for all Rangers home games. In addition, Morgan also is responsible for the Rangers promotional schedule each year. He has been with the Rangers for 37 of the last 38 seasons beginning with the 1983 campaign.
Morgan has announced the starting lineups for 2,972 consecutive Major League Baseball games. He has not missed a home game in Texas or Kansas City since he started in Major League Baseball 38 years ago.
With the Rangers, Morgan has been responsible for the creation of the Texas Rangers Baseball Hall of Fame, the Texas Rangers Fan Fest, and the Rangers’ mascot. He is credited with the creation of the “Dot Race” and the Texas Legends Dash at Rangers home games. He was coordinator for All-Star Workout Day and Home Run Derby for Major League Baseball’s 1995 All-Star Game.
In addition to his tenure with the Rangers, Morgan has also worked for the Kansas City Royals (2002) and Nashville Sounds (1978-1980). For six years, he was the public address announcer on Major League Baseball video games for X-Box, PlayStation and Nintendo.
While in Nashville, he was an announcer at WSM’s Grand Ole Opry, hosted several nationally syndicated radio and television shows, and made several “cornfield” appearances on Hee Haw. Morgan developed his trademark down home interviewing style at WSM. He has done hours of interviews with country stars such as Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Barbara Mandrell, Charley Pride, Marty Robbins and many others.
In 1982, he was named the Country Music Association’s Major Market Disc Jockey of the Year. In 2001 and 2003, he was named by The Sporting News as the best public address announcer in Major League Baseball. Morgan was inducted into the Information Display and Entertainment Association Hall of Fame in 2017. The IDEA Hall of Fame honors innovators in event presentation.
Chuck and his wife, Starr, reside in Fort Worth and share three sons, Kelley, Rhett and Clay, a daughter, Amanda and 5 grandsons.
