The Portland Trail Blazers are parting ways with TV play by play announcer Jordan Kent. Kent had been with the Blazers since 2016 when he joined Michael Holton as the television studio host. He was moved tv play by play alongside Lamar Hurd in 2020 for the NBA’s restart from Covid -19, replacing Kevin Calabro who had stepped down to spend time with his family. Kent continued as the Blazers television play by play announcer for the 2020-21 season.
The Blazers will be bringing back Kevin Calabro as their tv play by play announcer for the 2021-22 season as part of their bid to widen their fanbase in the northwest.
