White Sox extend Hawk for 4 seasons

CHICAGO – The unique stylings of Ken “Hawk” Harrelson will stick around for a while as the White Sox broadcaster agreed Wednesday to a four-year contract extension with the club.

Harrelson’s current deal was set to expire after Wednesday’s game. His new contract takes him through the 2015 season.

The 2012 season will mark Harrelson’s 27th as a White Sox broadcaster. He has worked with color commentator Steve Stone for three seasons.

A Ford C. Frick Award nominee for excellence in broadcasting in 2007 and 2012, Harrelson also is a two-time Illinois Sportscaster of the Year and five-time Emmy Award winner.
