Ted Leitner

Person from United States of America

Ted Leitner (born 1940s) is a former KFMB News 8 sportscaster and current radio play-by-play announcer for San Diego Padres baseball and San Diego State Aztecs men's basketball and football. He is also a former host on KFMB radio in San Diego. Due to a hectic schedule, he left KFMB just three days shy of his 25th anniversary at that station. He kept his play-by-play job with the San Diego Padres (who left that station around the same time for cross-town rival KOGO) and later XX Sports Radio (he also for a short time tried an afternoon show on XX Sports Radio as well). His association with the Padres dates back to 1980. Although he makes it a point to take a back seat to legendary sidekick Jerry Coleman, Ted has become a San Diego institution in his own right and his name appears on the ballot for the Ford Frick Award with the Baseball Hall of Fame. Leitner graduated from Oklahoma State University in the mid 1960s, and attended graduate school in Norman, Oklahoma. Before starting his long tenure in San Diego, Leitner worked for the Philadelphia Eagles, the San Diego Clippers and Chargers, and with university sports in Oklahoma and Hartford markets. He has six sons and one daughter.  ( Wikipedia article )
