ABOUT ME

Welcome! I'm TJ Wengert and this is my website, where you can see a variety of different broadcast work I have bene fortunate enough to do through my career. 

I'm currently the Director of Broadcasts, Media Relations and Sales for the Tri-City Chili Peppers.  I also do freelance play-by-play for Longwood, as well as, for local high school sports in the greater Richmond, Virginia area. 

Thus far in my career, I've been able to call games on ESPN+, ESPN 3, the A-10 network, WMLU 91.3 FM, 92.9 FM Kickin Country, in addition to previously being the voice of the Morehead City Marlins. 

I'm a graduate of Longwood University where I studied Communication Studies with a concentration in Digital Media, and was a Military History minor.
