Irwin also did University of Wisconsin football broadcasts for 22 years, UW basketball for five years, UW-Milwaukee basketball for two years, and Milwaukee Bucks games for 16 years. Irwin also handled the sports announcing duties on WTMJ's early morning show for more than 30 years. He continued in that role until July 1999.
Both of these men are missed dearly by those who grew up listening to them — in our case, because most Green Bay games weren’t on T.V. where we lived. We salute Jim Irwin for his decades of dedication to the team that we all love — the Green Bay Packers. There will never be another like him.
