STORM BROADCAST TEAM

Darek Sharp - play-by-play announcer

This is Darek’s fifth season on the Storm radio broadcast team, and first as primary play-by-play announcer.

He has been a member of the Tampa Bay sports radio scene since 1988 when he began working at WPLA-AM, which would in 1990 turn into Tampa's first all-sports station, WFNS. While at WFNS, he worked as a producer for Steve Duemig and directed the Tampa Bay Lightning broadcasts, duties he continued doing after WFNS was sold and the Sports Animal-WDAE was born in 1997.

In 2001, he became the morning Sports Attack man for the top sports radio station in the Tampa Bay market, WDAE, delivering the updates every morning. Currently he is the producer of The Sports Page, and the Ronnie & TKras shows, and covers numerous high school sports for the Tampa Bay Times. He and his wife Jen reside in Land O’Lakes.

Ian Beckles, color analyst

 This is Ian’s first season as a member of the Storm radio broadcast team, as he will take over color analyst duties.

A native of Montreal, Quebec, Ian was a standout offensive lineman at Indiana University, drafted by the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 5th round of the 1990 amateur draft. In seven seasons in Tampa Bay, Beckles started 97 games at guard, and appeared in 103 games total. After concluding his NFL career in Philadelphia in 1998, Ian moved in to broadcasting as a weekend host on 620 WDAE-AM in Tampa. In 2004 he was paired with Ron Diaz on The Ron & Ian Show, often the station’s top-rated show in the midday timeslot during its 12-year-run.

 With 25 years of connections in Tampa Bay both on and off the football field, Ian helps bring a distinct Tampa Bay “flavor” to Storm broadcasts in 2016. He and his wife Dayle, and children Zayna, Marques, and Payton reside in South Tampa.

Jack Harris, broadcaster emeritus garrulous

Jack is the most popular and recognized media personality in Tampa Bay. Currently he co-hosts A.M. Tampa Bay, on 970 WFLA, often the highest rated morning show in Tampa Bay. He came to the Tampa Bay area in 1970 and was on the original broadcast team for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (NFL). Jack went on to join the broadcast teams for the Tampa Bay Bandits (USFL) and the University of South Florida Bulls basketball team, as well as the NASL Tampa Bay Rowdies. Additionally he has been the voice of the Outback Bowl since 1990. Jack first called a Storm game in 1991, and called Storm games in 1993 and form 1997-2015. In 2016 Jack will provide historical vignettes for Storm radio during the team’s 25th season, and you’ll see and hear him more frequently at Storm games as a special emcee of numerous events.

Born and reared in a small town in West Virginia, Jack graduated Valedictorian of Logan High School prior to attending Davidson College. He went on to graduate from West Virginia University with a B.A. in History and then served two years as an officer in the U.S. Army. He and his wife Joy reside in South Tampa, and have one son, Jackson.
