Jared Sandler

Jared SandlerJared Sandler is the Pre and Postgame host/play-by-play alternate for the Texas Rangers on 105.3 The Fan.

Sandler’s post-college career began in Montana, calling minor league baseball for the Great Falls Voyagers (White Sox). He then Steve Nash-like skipped to Michigan, where he called two seasons of minor league baseball for the Great Lakes Loons (Dodgers), college basketball for Central Michigan University, and hosted, CrunchTime, an afternoon drive sports talk show on WLUN. From there, he returned home to the DFW metroplex, “the best place to be a sports fan,” for local KESN, where he contributed in a variety of on-air roles. Sandler then joined The Fan in his current role in February 2015.

Sandler’s driven by his infinite passion for sports, the way it can impact society and the pure art of competition. He rides the emotional rollercoaster with fellow fans,  unafraid to let out a good ol’ sports cry for better or for worse. From a very athletic South African family, he’s the grandson of a sprinter and the son of a soccer player, and the younger brother of two accomplished athletes. Several say that Sandler is the metroplex’s best 5′ 6 3/4″ Jewish athlete, though none of the references listed had working phones.

A proud alum of Greenhill School, Sandler went on to “star” at the University of Southern California (USC), though we aren’t quite sure at what, specifically. A part of the baseball program for four years, Sandler once got locked in the batting cage while he was supposed to be at the plate in an exhibition game. For his efforts in that batting cage, Sandler went on to receive the “USC Trojan Award,” from the athletic department. He received his B.A. in Communications as well as a minor in Entrepreneurship, even though he didn’t know what an entrepreneur was when he first pursued that discipline.

A big believer in the greatness of frozen grapes, Sandler loves food, cooking, and Blake Lively–and one day he wants to eat food he’s cooked for and with Blake Lively. He’s also a huge movie watcher and recently learned to enjoy reading. Though he doesn’t know how to ride a bike that well, Sandler remains very active, playing sports or exercising when possible. He also loves spending time with his nephews, Chase and Matthew.

Sandler lives in Dallas with his bobblehead collection, two “stuffed golden retrievers,” Muffy and Duffy, as well as a picture he took with Erin Andrews…allegedly and falsely at her request.
