Musser called Phillies games from 1976 to 2001, and teamed with Harry Kalas and Richie Asburn for over 20 years. Musser only missed two games while working for the Phillies, both of which were because of health.
A 1959 graduate of Syracuse University, Musser worked for WCAU Radio and television in Philadelphia from 1965-71 and CBS-TV from 1971-74.
