Jake Eisenberg is a recent graduate of the University of Maryland's Philip Merrill College of Journalism pursuing a career in play-by-play broadcasting. In 2017, he was named a Jim Nantz Award Honorable Mention by the Sportcasters Talent Agency of America, recognizing him as one of the best collegiate broadcasters in the country.
This summer, Jake will be a play-by-play broadcaster and media relations assistant for the Brooklyn Cyclones, the New York Mets' Short-Season Single-A affiliate in the New York-Penn League.
He spent the last three years as the Director of Media and Broadcasting—as well as the lead play-by-play broadcaster—of the Maryland Baseball Network, the flagship radio station for Maryland Terrapins baseball. He was responsible for providing play-by-play for all games—home and away—and covered the team with game recaps, feature stories and a weekly podcast that featured interviews with players, coaches, and media members.
In the summer of 2016, Jake was the lead play-by-play voice of the Chatham Anglers in the prestigious Cape Cod Collegiate Baseball League, calling 49 games in 62 days. He was also responsible for producing highlights, and pre- and post-game interviews with players and coaches.
The Port Washington, NY, native also served as a play-by-play voice for BTN Student U, calling select women's basketball, baseball, softball, field hockey, volleyball, and women's soccer games for the Big Ten Network's BTN2Go and BTN+ platforms over the last two years. Additionally, Jake was a main play-by-play broadcaster for WMUC Sports—the University of Maryland's student-radio station—calling football, men's basketball and women's basketball.
A veteran of over 200 broadcasts across eight different sports, Jake's dedication to broadcasting has led him to four NCAA Basketball Tournaments (two men's, two women's), three Big Ten Baseball Tournaments, one NCAA Baseball Tournament, and professional venues such as Madison Square Garden, Barclay's Center, and Target Field.
Jake has also gained professional sports television experience through internships at SNY, MLB Network and ESPN’s Around the Horn, and as a sports anchor for Capital News Service's daily newscast.
