Full Ep: Chuck Swirsky radio voice of Chicago Bulls 3 2 21
Baby onions.” Something you cook with? Maybe, but if you’re a sports fan, baby onions is a popular phrase belonging to Chuck Swirsky, the quirky and energetic radio voice of the Chicago Bulls. His career spans 5 decades including two stints in Chicago where he got his big break. “I was scared out of mind” recalls the then 26 year old Swirsky as he took a job doing four hours of nightly sports talk in a big city he was unfamiliar with. But he was not to be deterred eventually landing as the PA announcer with the Bulls and the voice of DePaul basketball before moving to Michigan to become the voice of Wolverines basketball, among other tasks. Then it was on to Toronto where Swirsky became the very popular voice of Raptors basketball. In January of 2006 Swirsky was behind the mike in Los Angeles when the late Kobe Bryant scored 81 points. He’s described the feats, reported on myriad stories and is one of the most respected and liked journalists in Chicago. He also tweets positive messages on a daily basis. Swirky says it comes from his mother who worked three jobs in their native Bellevue Washington. “You have to bring it every day” Swirky said emphatically. And he brings it with ‘emphasis’ in this episode of tell me a story I don’t know sponsored by Vienna Beef, makers of “Chicago’s” hot dog since 1893 And by the Paulina Market, Chicago’s finest purveyors of fine meats since 1949
