Tom Hanneman, longtime Twins and Fox Sports North broadcaster, passes away at 68

Hanneman was a staple of Twins and other Minnesota sports broadcasts for decades.

Fox Sports North

Various sources on Twitter announced this afternoon that longtime Minnesota broadcaster Tom Hanneman has passed away.

Tom spent nearly five decades covering Minnesota sports, first with WCCO and then with Fox Sports North. While with FSN, Hanneman anchored the pregame and postgame shows for the Twins, Timberwolves, and Wild. He has been a consistent presence on Twins Live since 2012, and Twins broadcasts will surely not be the same without his voice behind them. Tom was 68. May he rest in peace.

Twins President Dave St. Peter took to Twitter himself to express his thoughts, as did Dustin Morse, who handles communications for the team.

From all of us here at Twinkie Town, our condolences are with his family at this time.

If you have any Tom Hanneman memories, please feel free to share them in the comments.
