The Finger

On this eve of the Colts game, we came across this photo of Larry McCarren’s left pinkie finger, which is a souvenir from his NFL career. McCarren, of course, was the Packers’ starting center from 1973-84, including two Pro Bowl seasons in 1982 and ’83.

He began a television and radio broadcasting career in 1988 at Green Bay’s WFRV-TV and was named the Wisconsin Sportscaster of the Year four times. McCarren has been working on the Packers Radio Network as the color commentator for the Packers' radio broadcasts since 1995.

On April 9, 2015, the Green Bay Packers announced McCarren as a sports analyst for the Packers Media Group. In this role, he helps with the Packers' digital media. He continues to host Packers Live with Larry McCarren and The Mike McCarthy Show which airs on WGBA-TV in Green Bay and WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee during football season. His main emphasis is his work alongside Wayne Larrivee broadcasting games on WTMJ-AM and the Packers Radio Network.
