Biscuits hire former Myrtle Beach radio voice

The Biscuits have hired their radio voice and picked Jon Laaser, who spent last season as the broadcaster of the Myrtle Beach Pelicans.

Myrtle Beach announced that Laaser was leaving "to pursue advancement within minor league baseball" on Jan. 21.

Laaser, a Minneapolis native, spent one season with the Pelicans, the high-Class A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves. He also broadcast Charleston Southern sports this offseason.

The 28-year-old was the voice of the Double-A Altoona Curve in 2007 and the short-season Yakima Bears in 2006. He has also broadcast games for the independent St. Paul Saints (2005) and the St. Cloud River Bats (2003-04) of the summer collegiate Northwoods League.

Laaser graduated from Brown College in Mendota Heights, Minn., in 2002.
