New VOICE OF THE 500

After two years as IMS Radio Network “chief announcer”
Paul Page has decided it was time to call it quits. The
veteran announcer came back in 2014 for a second stint
in that role as he previously was the “chief announcer” for
the network from 1977-1987. From there, he’d become
the head announcer for ABCs IndyCar coverage before
moving into the same role on the NHRA side.

But, IndyCar got him back in 2014 which was a very
popular move. Unfortunately, he didn’t want to stay long as
he decided last year was it.

The IMS Radio Network hired
Mark Jaynes in that role
as the Beech Grove, Indiana resident becomes the sixth
“voice of the 500.”

The 52-year old joined the network in 1996 and has been
a regular ever since. He was most recently the lead
announcer for all the Indy Lights races and served on the
Verizon IndyCar Series broadcast in a fill-in role in the
booth on practice and/or qualifying days.

Joining Jaynes on the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series
broadcasts broadcasts will be Davey Hamilton who
serves as the driver analyst, Jake Query, Nick Yeoman,
Michael Young, Dave Furst, Katie Hargitt and Rob
Howden.
