Matt Park and Jenny Ryan
Matt Park returns for his seventh season as the play-by-play voice of the University of Michigan women's basketball team. Prior to becoming the "Voice of the Michigan women's basketball team," Park did play-by-play for several sports at Central Michigan University, including women's basketball, baseball, field hockey, football, soccer, softball, volleyball and wrestling. He also worked in the sports information office at CMU. Park got his start in broadcasting calling games for the Grand Rapids Hoops of the Continental Basketball Association. He is a three-time Michigan Association of Broadcasters award winner for play-by-play on both radio and television. Matt is married to his wife, Laura, a teacher, and has two sons, Braylon and Caleb. Former Wolverine Jenny Ryan (2010-13) will join Park on most home broadcasts as a commentator, using her vast knowledge of the game to bring another aspect to the radio broadcast. Ryan was part of the winningest class in Michigan history and left as U-M's all-time leader in minutes played by a man or a woman.
