July 27, 1996|By Milton Kent | Milton Kent,SUN STAFF Sun staff writer Kevin Langbaum contributed to this article.

The Ravens and their radio carrier, Infinity, yesterday named Scott Garceau and Bruce Cunningham to call the team's games on WJFK (1300 AM) and WLIF (101.9 FM), beginning with next Saturday's first preseason contest.

Garceau, sports director at Channel 2, will be the play-by-play announcer and Cunningham, who has the same duties at Channel 45, will act as color analyst.

"I'm excited about it. I love football and I'm glad to be a part of its coming back to Baltimore," said Garceau, 44, an announcer with Channel 2 since 1980.

"This is something that I've really wanted to do for a long time and I'm just happy to be included," said Cunningham, 38, who has been with Channel 45 since the inception of its news operation five years ago.

Garceau and Cunningham have extensive football broadcasting experience in Baltimore. Cunningham, who came to Baltimore LTC from Birmingham, Ala., was the lead voice on Stallions radio broadcasts over two seasons here, and Garceau has called games involving the Colts, the defunct USFL Stars and the Stallions on television.

Jeremy Coleman, operations manager for Infinity, said the outlet will look for a third person with local NFL ties to work games with Garceau and Cunningham as well as talent for its pre- and post-game shows.

Names believed to be under consideration for a third slot in the booth include former Colts Tom Matte, who worked with Garceau and Cunningham on football broadcasts, and Bruce Laird and Joe Washington, who both did color on Stallions radio broadcasts.
