Penn State football: Jones, Ham sign extensions to remain on Nittany Lion broadcast team

The radio broadcast team of Steve Jones and Jack Ham has signed on for at least three more years of calling Penn State football on the Penn State Sports Network.

Jones and Ham will begin their 14th consecutive season of calling Nittany Lion games when Bill O’Brien’s squad meets Syracuse on Aug. 31 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

Loren Crispell returns as the sideline reporter and Roger Corey will host the pregame show.

Jones has served as the play-by-play voice of Nittany Lion basketball since 1982 and Penn State football since 2000. He co-hosts the Penn State Football Show and Penn State Basketball Show on Thursday at 6:05 p.m., from late August through March. Jones also does State College Spikes baseball games on radio.

Ham was a first-team All-America linebacker for the Nittany Lions. He is an NFL Hall of Famer and earned nine consecutive All-Pro selections during his 12-year career with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also serves as an analyst on NFL Network radio broadcasts.
