Belleson named new Wrigley PA announcer
MESA, Ariz. -- Andrew Belleson, who was the public address announcer and handled radio broadcast duties for the Rockford RiverHawks for five seasons, was named the new public address announcer at Wrigley Field on Friday.

The Cubs selected Belleson from 2,954 applications from 48 states and Canada. He began his broadcast career at age 15 with the RiverHawks, helping on a part-time basis during summers off from high school.

A native of suburban Arlington Heights, Ill., he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration with a concentration in radio/television broadcasting from Concordia University in River Forest, Ill. He played baseball at Concordia and helped build the sports department for the local college radio station, WCGR 88.5 FM, including broadcasting for football, basketball and baseball games.

A lifelong Cubs fan, Belleson grew up idolizing Harry Caray and has attended Cubs games since childhood.
